“Jewellery should adapt to our lifestyles. As we re-emerge after a difficult year, jewellery that resonates with who we are today will find pride of place—whether it’s the perennial hoop or statement gold ring and diamond necklaces that can be worn with T-shirts as much as with dresses.”
– Priya Tanna, Former Editor-In-Chief, Vogue India
“Diamonds to me represent timeless style and panache. Irrespective of the occasion or outfit, they complement it all, while reflecting our personality. Our report captures the prevailing sentiment of positivity and optimism as the world opens up and we get the opportunity to celebrate the meaningful moments of life with our loved ones. There is no better expression of this love and affection than eternal, emotion-evoking natural diamonds. I hope that you are inspired and find a Diamond that you relate with, be it a statement-making cuff or a minimal geometric ring.”
– Richa Singh, Managing Director India & Middle East, Natural Diamond Council
“A diamond brooch is the ultimate piece of heirloom jewellery that I’ve seen everyone, from my grandmother to my husband, wear. The kind of piece that is treasured for generations and can be easily passed on to a son or a daughter””
PRIYANKA PARKASH,JEWELLERY EDITOR, VOGUE INDIA
“I love when a piece of jewellery takes you back to a certain night or moment in your life each time you look at it.”
PRIYANKA KAPADIA, FASHION DIRECTOR, VOGUE INDIA
“The chain-link diamond bracelet is one of the most wearable items one can invest in. A slightly chunkier silhouette in a geometric style makes for the perfect arm candy”
PRIYANKA PARKASH, JEWELLERY EDITOR, VOGUE INDIA
“Accentuating your look by donning a pair of shoulder dusters makes a woman feel powerful, the hero of her own story. Natural diamonds are versatile, and they add an element of drama to power dressing”
RICHA SINGH, MANAGING DIRECTOR, NATURAL DIAMOND COUNCIL
“A statement cuff makes for the perfect arm candy. Whether worn with a sari or a cocktail dress for special occasions, or layered with your watch for some everyday ott, the statement cuff is the ideal addition to your jewellery capsule collection”
Priya Tanna, Editor-in-Chief, Vogue India
