Jewels of Desire
For over a decade now, those who prefer custom handmade jewellery over mass produced have made their way to Gehna. “A bride walks in and tells us the theme of the wedding, her colour and style preference. An in-house design team then works on the requirements to create a unique piece for her special day”, says Vineeth Samdaria, 25, head, operations and marketing.
Brides can choose from three different styles—traditional South Indian, contemporary with diamonds and colour stones and kundan and meenakari. A recent Mughal-themed wedding required them to create Mughal art inspired jewellery in pink gold to match the bride’s lehenga. “Most brides these days don’t want heavy jewellery and stick to colour stones and diamonds that can be worn later too. They are also open to gold in different tones. We offer as many as seven kinds,” he adds.
