Jadau jewellery designer Falguni Mehta unveils 'Exquisite Emerald' collection
Taking inspiration from her travels and the western world, her latest line of jewellery is a take on the Indo-Western trends, with the collections ranging from using design inspirations from Egypt and Morocco to the temples of South India
Launching her most recent collection, ‘Exquisite Emeralds’ ace designer Falguni Mehta offers statement necklaces, chokers and traditional earrings. Crafted using her expertise of over three decades, this range is inspired by the Mughal era and India’s rich cultural heritage. A beautiful combination of emeralds, uncut diamonds in gold and rare Basra pearls merged in each piece of jadau jewellery that highlight the ascendency and sophistication of this extravagant collection. These timeless pieces are sure to make heads turn at wedding events and other social gatherings.
Falguni, a former national table tennis player, strives always to excel, a discipline set during her sports training days. Having an eye for the unusual & unique, she started re-creating her old jewellery into wearable art, using the now rare Basra pearls to enhance & translate into precious heirloom pieces. These won her accolades followed by appreciating inquiries for owning some of these jewels.
Immense gratification in designing something & seeing it being created into an appreciated reality guided Falguni to look into creating these for discerning clients. Coming from a jeweller family background & married to a jeweler gave her an edge with a ready infrastructure. Ten years hence today, Falguni Mehta, mother of two, has established herself a niche in the jadau jewellery business. Exquisitely crafted jewels in textured gold, embellished with precious uncut diamonds & finished with Basra pearls are her hallmarks today.
Extensive travels around the world brought new influences & insights into her designing, which soon reflected in her creations. She successfully launched each inspired collection, The Byzantium collection, the Moroccan Magic, Precious Fusion, etc. Falguni Mehta has worked with Paresh Maity in translating his vibrant art into jewels forms, creating singular pieces of wearable art.
