This Diwali and wedding season is surely going to be special for many of us with the beautiful, exquisite heirloom pieces and ornaments by the Shubham collection of Tanishq.
Tanishq has introduced its latest range of jewellery “Shubham” , the exquisite temple jewellery in the times when the traditional craftsmanship in jewellery making has reached an apogee; hence reviving artistic traditions in fading, distinctive , indigenous form of jewellery.
Shubham is jewellery inspired by the history , geography and diversity of culture of India , thereby redefining the beauty of Indian Woman. I was invited by the team Tanishq to blog and review the same and it is been an extremely luxurious and thoroughly pampering affair to get this opportunity.
And As I donned the sets one by one, so many feelings and memories flooded my heart. For me Tanishq holds an immense emotional value for the fact that my mother loved Tanishq jewellery and every piece of jewellery in Shubham is not just a product but a heirloom which a mother passes on to her daughter. It is the glory of generations, the celebration of the eternal bond and relationships , the journey of a woman; when every set signifies a feeling poignant in the moment. I could realise that at Tanishq, jewellery is not just a form of adornment but every piece of Shubham also carries symbolic value in terms of so many ways.
The first one I donned is the ‘hansuli’ choker and I could feel that each set or necklace tells its own story, aesthetically appealing to the senses with its fragments in history. This one is a timeless design modified into delicate piece of art, replicating and retaining the traces of original heirloom yet fashioning it on the lines of universal appeal and modern charm. I had always heard of Hansuli from my mother and this was a fabulous ornate creation on my neck. This piece would compliment a woman on every occasion, be it Diwali or your own wedding. The hansuli is a statement jewellery and is breath taking and magnificent. This hansuli choker was a blend of Indian heritage and modern precision.
Then I chose to wear a Choker and a long neck piece or haar . The beads of the Choker are in the shape of pillars of a temple with intricate carvings. The long neck piece totally complements the look with its bearing in the majestic temples of Hampi, Gujarat and Bhubaneshwar, hence making it an ornament of regal grace, thus adding the royal touch to the aura of a woman. I chose to brace and adorn my hands with a lovely ring and a beautiful pair of Kangans which felt like a shower of opulence, glory and blessings from heavens above. …
Shubham is the jewellery that not only a bride wears on her wedding day with elan and poise but also which can be fused with any modern clothing with eclat.
The piece of jewellery I loved the most is the beautiful Krishna haar. Although it would feel that it’s so traditional yet I made sure I wear it in a different flavour and so I wore it with the black Roberto Cavalli gown. With this I wore a delicate choker and the regal long neckpiece which is a fusion of the age old Matarmala and panchlara haar. The beaded arrangement of Matarmala in a a simplistic yet very stylish way woven into a three layered (instead of five layers of panch- Lara haar), makes it a possession of unbridled grandeur. The modern and wearable twist, despite marrying of two very royally exquisite pieces into one, makes it the most arresting piece of jewellery which I would surely want to buy and treasure in my jewellery box( which incidentally is a gift from my grand-ma).
Each piece of jewellery in the Shubham collection represents an epoch, an era that makes you feel like a woman with an undeniable air of beauty and royalty. Tanishq, has surely paid a tribute to the art and artisans , temple and history of Indian culture, playing with the designs and motifs inherited from past, and re-crafted, reviving the jewellery into a new contemporary form. This gesture has alchemised the artistic spirit and coalesced the craftsmanship with fashion in a very fashionable and trendy manner. These wondrous ornaments are the current must- haves in any urban lady’s trinket box. So let’s celebrate #tanishqwalidiwali .For more designs you can see here- Tanishq.co.in
