Ro­manc­ing Di­a­monds

Adorn - - IIJW SPECIAL -

For ace jew­ellery de­signer Ni­rav Modi, di­a­monds play a ma­jor role in his cre­ations. De­signer of the fa­mous Golconda neck­lace, Modi’s in­no­va­tions in­clude the patented End­less and Ainra di­a­mond cuts that have thrilled jew­ellery con­nois­seurs world­wide.

At the show, Ni­rav cre­ated a fairy-tale set­ting to ex­hibit his ex­cep­tional jew­ellery, which was in­spired by mythol­ogy, na­ture, ar­chi­tec­ture and even toys! The show opened with a bal­let per­for­mance by four dancers from the Im­pe­rial Fer­nando Bal­let Com­pany chore­ographed by Fer­nando and Mo­hamed Rafi, and later mod­els wore jew­ellery from his stun­ning col­lec­tions such as Mughal, Sherezade, Sun­burst and Fluire.

The au­di­ence couldn’t get enough of the glit­ter­ing lacy neck­pieces, shim­mer­ing hoops, triple-row di­a­mond neck­lace, and side-looped neck­laces on a flat bed of sparklers.

In­spired by na­ture, del­i­cate leaves were the high­light of a neck­lace and ear­ring set. Tiny flo­rets in di­a­monds, a choker band of del­i­cate mo­tifs and a sun­burnt side caught by four strands re­vealed Ni­rav Modi’s in­ge­nious de­sign­ing tal­ent.

An el­e­gant long piece inset with pre­cious gems, three chains clasped with clus­ters, an an­gu­lar pen­dant, and a cir­cu­lar scal­loped cre­ation made women in the au­di­ence long to pos­sess them. The fi­nal en­try by supermodel Lisa Hay­don dis­play­ing a ruby and lacy di­a­mond cre­ation with match­ing ear­rings and a bracelet was a fit­ting end to a classy pre­sen­ta­tion.
