Jewel of the day: Blossom Box Princess Choker Necklace

If you’re going to succumb to the choker trend, you may as well do it with some regal intent. This piece by Indian designer Blossom Box has a bit of a Mughal twist to its design: it’s gold plated with faux pearls and crystals, and is a one size fits all piece with an adjustable chain.

This sells for USD$150.



Jewel of the day: Sunita Shekhawat Meenakari Kundun and Diamond Pendant

I have a few pieces of Indian Mogul style jewellery and in general, I love the exuberance of Indian jewellery. This pendant by Sunita Shekhawat is made with two techniques: meenakari, (thank you Wikipedia) coloring and ornamenting the surface of metals by fusing over it brilliant colors decorated in an intricate design; and Kundan, a traditional form of Indian gemstone jewellery involving a gem set with gold foil between the stones and its mount.

I love the soft pink of the beads on the “chain” holding the pendant, echoed in the lavender on the pendant itself. The blue, so like French blue enamel, takes on a more relaxed look than traditional European enamel.

There are no prices shown, but you can contact Shekhawat here.
