About Me
Kalki through the looking-glass

As we entered Amy Billimoria’s House of Design in Juhu, Mumbai, we knew we were not in Kansas anymore. The store exudes a happy feeling. From the décor of the store to the clothes housed within it, we could tell that this was going to be a departure from a traditional bridal makeover.

About Me
Sonam and Paras Modi share their marriage mantra…

We met at a common friend’s wedding in Lonavla, after which we started meeting almost twice a week with friends. We got along like a house on fire; it felt so comfortable talking to each other, it was like we were long lost friends. The initial courtship felt more like a game of hide and seek. We didn’t want to tell people yet as we were still getting to know each other.

Tracing the Mughal heritage of the millennial bride’s preferred polki jewellery

Polki jewellery is one of the most preferred jewellery styles among Indian brides. Given the raw beauty of polki uncut diamonds, polki jewellery has much to offer the millennial bride

WHERE IT BEGAN: “Polki as an art form came alive during the Mughal era in the 15th century. Centuries of craftsmanship are evident in its intricate designs that require skill and dedication. Although traces of enamelling in jewellery existed in ancient India, this technique reached its zenith under the Mughals. The Mughal influence in polki jewellery can be seen in the various geometric, floral and nature inspired designs, which are an intrinsic feature of the Mughal dynasty monuments and heritage architecture,” says Kalyanaraman, while relating the journey of polki jewellery. The vibrant coloured polki diamond sets are a product of the Rajasthani culture.

THE PRECIOUS FACTOR: Ahammed MP, shares, “Polki jewellery exudes a majestic elegance—the precious gems and detailed craftsmanship make polki a valuable adornment.”

ASSOCIATED REGIONS: Like kundan, intricate polki jewellery designs were further used and re-worked upon by the royals of Rajasthan and Gujarat.

OWN IT: A nath set consisting of a polki diamond, bangle and a statement ring must be a part of every bride’s jewellery box, feels Kalyanaraman.
