Visakhapatnam, Nov.1 (ANI): A pen studded with thousands of
dazzling diamonds was sold for 2.3 million rupees at an ongoing jewellery exhibition
here over the weekend.

The expensive pen is certified by the International
Gemological Institute (IGI).

“The pen is made in white gold, with around 2,500 natural
diamonds, all graded and certified. And also, we have a lining of yellow
diamonds, natural fancy yellow diamonds. It has been made by six craftsmen and
took around 18 months to make this essentially,” said Mani Singh Deo, the
organiser of the exhibition.

“The craftsmanship is very exquisite. As you see the pen,
you will be able to know that it’s a very unique piece and essentially we
wanted to make a collector’s item and I think we have been fairly successful in
doing that,” he added.

The exhibition showcased a wide variety of fine jewellery
ranging crafted in diamonds and gold, ranging from daily to bridal wear.

Organisers credited their affordable pricing of jewellery as
the reason behind the success of the exhibition.

The exhibition was flocked by large number of jewellery
enthusiasts and shoppers.

“I think jewellery has got good response, people are
interested but those are pieces that people don’t buy on impulse. What people
are definitely looking for are a trusted jeweler who would give them the kind
of designs and the range that they require. We have everything from bridal jewellery
to daily wear to ‘Tanmanyas’, black beads and all of it. People were very happy
with the range,” said Deo.

Customers were delighted with the shimmering pieces of
jewellery and found the products to be matchless in quality and design.

“It’s a very nice collection and specially designs. It’s a
very design oriented thing and there is quite a lot of variety. In each and
every category you have a lot of pieces to choose from and a very nice range.
The prices are very affordable,” said Swathi, a jewellery shopper.

Other than jewellery of various kinds, home and lifestyle
decorative artifacts in Porcelain from France and Spain were also displayed,
which got a good response from visitors at the expo.

The exhibition will conclude on November 07. (ANI)
