The maiden season of Made in Heaven (2019) deserved all the brouhaha for the fashion that drove the narrative and defined personalities without once overpowering either. The International Emmy Awards-nominated series beautifully reveals the dichotomy of tradition, modern aspirations and belief systems set against the canvas of lavish Indian weddings.
Unveiling Natural Diamond Splendour with Tara and Karan
As the hotshot on-screen wedding planners Tara Khanna (Sobhita Dhulipala) and Karan Mehra (Arjun Mathur) return, it’s time again to be dazzled by lavish nuptial soirees where traditions and modernism collide. With the new season, the series will delve deeper into the lives of Tara & Karan, who navigate through the complexities of organising and celebrating weddings while their own lives unfold in unexpected ways. The vibe is about all things time-honoured yet contemporary, including the jewellery, which is elemental to any wedding.
In Season 2, leading celebrities from the show—Sobhita Dhulipala, Mrunal Thakur, Neelam Kothari, Sarah Jane Dias, and Shibani Dandekar, will add glam to the game with snazzy natural diamond jewellery for different characters and stories.
Sarah Jane Dias Sparkles in Timeless Diamond Accessories
As a Christian bride, Sarah Jane Dias epitomises the charming fusion of Indian and Western tradition through her natural diamond jewellery ensemble—an XXL choker encrusted with cascading drops sitting pretty at her collarbone. Simple yet elegant, the choker accentuates her neckline. As a time-tested accessory itself, it also symbolises the celebration of an enduring institution like marriage and represents a new-age bride with a modern edge. Rounding off the set are matching earrings and rings, all from the house of Khanna Jewellers.
Avant-garde and alternative jewels
Shibani Dandekar Makes a Bold Diamond Statement
Even as same-sex weddings are fast normalising in many parts of the world, wedding jewellery is still primarily created for heteronormative couples. Couturier Gaurav Gupta, however, ensured that the bracelet, XXL earrings and the ring Shibani Dandekar adorned featured a traditionally feminine design with intricate detailing that’s bold, unabashed, and alternative. Natural diamond jewellery embodies the beauty of enduring love and a lifetime of unity and commitment.
Symbolising enduring love
Neelam Radiates in Natural Diamond Splendour
Sparks fly when love is rekindled. And nothing but the most dazzling jewellery would emulate this. As Neelam finds love in her estranged husband again, the modern solitaire wedding ring encircled by a natural diamond-encrusted band was a perfect fit to establish their undying romance. It’s double the celebration, with her on-screen daughter also walking down the aisle for her own happily ever after. The sheen couldn’t be any lesser for the young bride. Right enough, besides the wedding ring, Khurana Jewellery House’s pieces decked her up with a multi-string natural diamond choker with a ruby in the centre and a pair of statement earrings. Stylist, Bhawna Sharma says, “Diamonds and coloured gemstones are a classic combination that are coming back in trend now. We chose this bold choker for its versatility and effortlessly enhancing the overall modern silhouette and aesthetic. It also added a dash of drama to the track featuring a mother and daughter embarking on their journeys simultaneously, which is a rare occurrence.”
Contemporary and out-of-fairy tale style
Pulkit and Elnaaz’s Extravagant Sparkle
One of the stories captures the glitz and glamour of two Bollywood stars uniting in marriage. As Pulkit Samrat and Elnaaz Norouzi prepare to tie the knot, they adorn the most intricately designed diamond jewellery by Jaipur Gems at their pre-wedding photoshoot and cocktail party.
“The divine diamond choker necklace is stylishly contemporary yet something out of a fairy tale, featuring bold flower motifs. Of course, it isn’t a wedding without a ring, so we added an octagonal ring, fully encrusted with sparkling natural diamonds to capture the big Bollywood wedding splendour.” reveals Sharma.
The OG hot-stepper
Sobhita Dhulipala is a maiden from Heaven. In Season 1, her journey traversed from humble beginnings as a typical working woman, to a successful businesswoman despite being a business magnate’s wife. Sobhita handled the character arc and her transformation with great finesse—from the middle-class unpolished look to an uber-sophisticated style goddess. Tara returns to captivate audiences with her effortless charm, astute business acumen, and self-assured as well as steely personality. The stunning Miss India pageant queen glitters in natural diamond jewellery designed by Anmol Jewellers on two occasions. For the Christian pre-wedding do, the necklace and a bracelet featuring elegant geometrical motifs have a subtle and modern look.
“For the club scene, when Shobhita goes for a party with her friends, we paired natural diamond earrings with geometrical shapes ascending in size, which made for an enchanting detail,”says Sharma
Playful and phenomenally fashionable
The talented actress Mrunal Thakur tries on designer lehengas for her impending nuptials and sports a gorgeous set of natural diamond earrings with a matching ring by Om Jewellery. The earrings are fashioned in a whimsical curved shape with lines of tiny diamonds. The ring is equally captivating, with a solitaire at the centre and playful wavy lines of diamonds around it.
Undeniably, each character’s natural diamond jewellery styling added panache to their personality. But overall, it was a tour de force that rounded off unique life stories, journeys, and precious moments of the happily ever after!
