Prim­i­tive power

Adorn - - OFF THE SHELF - Avail­able at Ha­zoo­ri­lal, New Delhi

Tribal mo­tifs in jew­ellery take you back into his­tory, and above all, they ex­ude raw en­ergy. This lim­ited edi­tion, in­flu­enced by the tribal chief­tains of Africa, is crafted in 22-karat yel­low gold and ac­cented with richly hued coloured gem­stones. Pic­tured here is a solid 22-karat open gold cuff with an­tique fin­ish from the house of Ha­zoo­ri­lal, New Delhi. The piece be­long­ing to the Tribal Era col­lec­tion show­cases a per­fect blend of su­pe­rior crafts­man­ship and de­sign that high­lights the an­cient In­dian cul­ture. In­tri­cately carved with flo­ral and leafy mo­tifs, the finials are adorned with drop-shaped emer­alds and pearls. The glass-shaped manchette mounted in 22-karat yel­low gold is dressed up with a vine of flow­ers stud­ded with ru­bies on one side and emer­alds on the other. The cuff has a lock­ing sys­tem in which the two halves of the or­na­ment are joined by two long screws on both sides. The cuff is fur­ther em­bel­lished with sym­met­ri­cal lines and tex­tures that adds a touch of glam­our to it. The 22-karat yel­low gold pen­dant neck­lace and ear­rings pays ho­mage to the sun. The gold medal­lion pen­dant cen­tres on a flo­ral mo­tif set with pre­cious cabo­chon cut ru­bies and emer­alds with a sur­round of fine en­grav­ings that de­pict the rays of the sun. Be an ex­per­i­men­tal­ist and team up this tribal jew­ellery with a cou­ture out­fit to be fu­ture per­fect.
