From office to parties, one statement piece can add panache
At TIMES, just one statement jewellery is enough to catapult you to the club of fashionistas – maybe just a stunning dangler, a pearl neckpiece a la Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Especially for those who do not believe in clutter in the name of accessorising, designer jewellery brand Entice, a KGK jewellery subsidiary has come up with a work wear collection called 9 to 5.
There are days when you want to wear one piece which can brighten your office look. Keeping the minimalists in mind, Manju Kothari, the creative head of the brand , and her team, have designed danglers, necklaces and bracelets which will help you heighten your glam quotient up a few notches and ensure that you aren’t a misfit at the cocktail party post that. “The collection is targeted at working women for everyday wear. The designs are simple but classy,” says the designer who studied at Gemological Institute of America.
These exquisite pieces combine yellow, white and rose-gold and some of these motifs come in edgy geometric patterns that are sleek. Manju, who shuttles between Hong Kong and Jaipur is well-versed in fusing Indian accesory traditions with contemporary ones. “I have grown up surrounded by traditional kundan, meena jewellery, fine art and classical music,” says the designer who moved to Hong Kong after getting married and that‘s when she began exploring contemporary accesories.
So now, her designs fuse both the worlds to create wardrobe staples that are trendy and high on craftsmanship. They have been sported by the likes of Malaika Arora Khan, Dia Mirza and Princess Diya Kumari of Jaipur.
The brand is yet to come up with a boutique in Hyderabad. However, the enthusiasts can call them and place their orders, following which it will be delivered to their doorsteps.
Price: Starts from `25,000 onwards
