THE FAM­ILY BOND

Adorn - - DESIGN AWARDS - By ULANDIE JONAS (1st place in Pro­fes­sional Cat­e­gory)

The el­e­gant neck­piece is in­spired by the bridal mehendi cer­e­mony that sig­ni­fies the bonds be­tween a cou­ple and their re­spec­tive fam­i­lies. The piece, in a sim­plis­tic yet sub­tle way, dis­plays the strength of plat­inum in this in­tri­cate de­sign.

“I de­cided to de­sign a neck­piece for the mod­ern In­dian bride, keep­ing the tra­di­tional wed­ding in mind but giv­ing it a mod­ern, min­i­mal­ist twist,” said Jonas. The or­ganic curved lines re­sem­ble the mehendi and the two con­trast­ing colours rep­re­sent the union of both the cou­ple and their fam­i­lies. The pol­ished plat­inum rep­re­sents a mod­ern take on tra­di­tions, while the black rep­re­sents old tra­di­tional ways. The pearl sym­bol­ises union, pu­rity and love which is cel­e­brated on one’s wed­ding day.”
