Green revo­lu­tion

Harper's Bazaar (India) - - BAZAAR ACCESSORIES -

When the ac­tress wore emer­ald Lor­raine Schwartz ear­rings to the Os­cars in 2009, she was kick­ing off a trend that’s go­ing to peak in 2015. But it’s not just celebrity pa­tron­age that has re­sulted in the re­vival of the in­tense green su­per­stone. To­day, emer­alds are more ac­ces­si­ble than ru­bies and sap­phires. Plus, gem pro­duc­ers like Gemfields have pro­moted emer­alds in a big way, in­flu­enc­ing the trend. And while global brands like Cartier, Bul­gari, and Chopard have a his­tory of us­ing large emer­alds in their de­signs, closer home, In­dian la­bels too are pick­ing up on this global re­nais­sance. Look no fur­ther than Ha­zoo­ri­lal by San­deep Narang or Varuna D Jani for lo­cal takes on a stone long favoured by the royal courts and

cognoscenti of In­dia.
