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.
