P.C.Chandra Jewellers unveil its Rajasthani inspired store in Kolkata
P.C. Chandra Jewellers, a leading jewellery house of Eastern India recently launched their 39th showroom in North Kolkata at Hatibagan which is created to infuse the grandeur of Rajasthan in the City of Joy. This regal showroom is inspired by ‘Sonar Kella’ the Golden Fortress of Jaisalmer which is surely going to be a visual treat for all jewellery connoisseurs. The grand three storied intricately carved building speaks about its magnificent standalone architectural beauty. The elaborate Jafri work, the interiors, murals, sandstone and marble are used to create meenakari architecture in the showroom. Use of strategic warm lighting, flickering shadows, handcraft walls, beautifully stained glasswork, antique furniture and the high intensity chandeliers creates an ethereal feeling, that perfectly complement the unique jewellery designs and heritage artistry of PC Chandra Jewellers.
The showroom has two Rajasthani signature marble crafts (An elephant carrying the Maharaja and Maharani) placed at the main entrance, a broad pathway to enter inside, covered by Jafri work on wall, all made of sandstone. Going upstairs, there are two beautiful murals, where the scenes from Rajasthan’s epic war history have been beautifully depicted. The banister has Rajasthani sandstone Jafri work which leads to the Khaas Darbar – with seating for eight to ten special patrons. The Rajasthani wooden door with silver knocker, Persian carpet and the old world charm of gadda seating add a dash of warm homeliness. To make this jewel palace even more special, it has a balcony covered with stone latticework. The layout is immensely beautiful and full of delicate carvings and exquisite mirror work. The lighting adds the magic of a ‘Haveli’ and ‘Qila’ or Fort, making it an absolute jewellery shopper’s den.
Speaking about the store launch, Suvro Chandra, Joint Managing Director, P.C Chandra Jewellers said, “We are extremely happy to come up with such a majestic showroom in Kolkata especially in Hatibagan inspired by Sonar Kella. This place itself has a lot of historical linkages. It is believed that elephants of Nawab Siraj ud-Daulah were posted here when he attacked Kolkata in 1756. Hatibagan is one of the oldest traditional markets in Kolkata city.”
The store offers a wide array of innovative, chic and tradition.
