Tanya Rastogi celebrates the charm of Awadhi Stateliness with an Antique Bridal Collection
Jewellery connoisseur Tanya Rastogi writes another magnum opus depicting the antiquity of the erstwhile Royal Era of Awadh, transcribed in an enigmatic Bridal Collection.
The collection comprises of elaborate chokers, long haars and statement chandelier earrings where the time-travelled masterpieces are meticulously curated out of sheer inspiration from the bridal enchantment of the majestic maharanis to the Nawabs of Lucknow.
The eternal yellow nuance of 18 K Gold is used to retain the timelessness of the designs, which further accentuates with the opulence of traditional craftsmanship including Jadau Polki, Kundan, Nakshi and Meenakari. The collection derives its source from motifs of royalty including the wings of elegance, the crescent moon and more in which encrusted are uncut-diamonds, gemstones and pearls gleaming together in ecstasy.
Detailed meenakari work depicts the coveted aesthetics of Lucknowi architecture along with tassels made using a myriad of uncut pearls and emerald beads that add a playfulness of tranquility to the outstanding designs, making them a complete heirloom offering from one generation of nobles to another.
Known for its eloquent essence, the Awadhi culture is all about elegance, precision and vibrancy that same has been thoroughly captured in every distinguished masterpiece from this collection. Being the jewellers to the Nawabs, Lala Jugal Kishore Jewellers comes with an unparalleled experience of serving the jewellery needs of royalty. The collection has been crafted thoughtfully keeping in mind the modern royal bride who lives in the new age world and at the same time stays close to her cultural ethnicity.
The designs are apt for traditional celebrations like reception or sangeet ceremony in a traditional setting and can go well with the trendy pastel lehengas, exuding the demure yet bold side of the bride-to-be.
