Jewels of De­sire

India Today - - COVER STORY - EINA AHLUWALIA

Eina Ahluwalia re­calls her most mem­o­rable mo­ment, when her Kir­pan neck­lace un­veiled at the Lakme Fash­ion Week 2010 met with a col­lec­tive gasp from the au­di­ence and left a few with goose bumps and tears. Over the years, Ahluwalia has cre­ated a new kind of space for jewellery and has been one of the most con­cep­tual de­sign­ers in In­dia. Her strength of in­spi­ra­tion and de­sign came from her own sis­ter's do­mes­tic abuse saga. Ac­cord­ing to her, her jewellery is not about or­na­men­ta­tion, "On the con­trary, it is a lib­er­at­ing ex­pres­sion of one’s per­son­al­ity. It speaks of who we are, how we think," she says.

Lat­est Pick Her re­cent col­lab­o­ra­tion with Swarovski has yielded a daz­zling, lim­ited edi­tion range of ear­rings, neck­pieces and fin­ger rings, aptly chris­tened Rruhi. Sleek, el­e­gant and luxe, the line is part of Con­flu­ence by Swarovski and is Ahluwalia’s first tryst with crys­tals. De­tails einaahluwalia.com Tel 9831059125
