New Delhi, May 22 (IANS) Designer Rachna Kapoor has launched a new jewellery collection “Shara”, inspired by royal weddings of the late 1960s and early 1970s, and says she has used lot of semi-precious stones to design them.
“The entire line depicts the royal wedding of late 1960s and early 1970s when big and heavy jewellery was in vogue,” Kapoor told IANS.
“The collection is inspired by the glitter of stones that I saw as a child in Indian brides’ jewellery. In north India, brides used to wear ancestral jewellery. The Kaliras (a kind of bangle worn by brides in some states in north India) only added to her royal look and I was fascinated by how a simple girl looked so beautiful on her wedding day,” she said.
“In the Hebrew language, ‘Shara’ means ‘princess’ and the collection has a regal touch with modern twist. There is a kind of elegance and exclusivity attached to the entire line which makes it the limited edition piece,” she added.
It was launched Friday and offers earrings and statement neck pieces to rings and beautiful cuffs - all this made with semi-precious stones and metals, coupled with intricate designs.
“I have always been fascinated by glittering stones and Shara is the result of my understanding of colours and concepts. Right from childhood days, it was these breathtaking stones that caught my eye for inspiration. The designs are made keeping in mind the trends that are both unique and fresh. Shara embodies the stunning jewels that the young princess yearns for,” Kapoor said.
The designer feels beautiful clothes require elegant jewellery and she kept this in mind while making the entire collection.
“Every single piece is made for the women who wants to dress up gracefully. The one of its kind pieces that exemplify the creator’s own bold and glamorous fashion statements will offer a nice amalgamation of traditional regal pieces with a contemporary touch,” she added.
The collection is available on appointment at Kapoor’s residence.
