With exclusive designs, Maneck Jewels gives you another good reason to invest in diamonds this season
Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but any old piece doesn’t cut it anymore. With sales increasing every year, it sometimes becomes harder to find bespoke pieces that will turn conversation starters. That’s where the luxe Maneck Jewels makes their mark—they are all about exclusive pieces. Focussing on the concept of the Navratna or nine gems (diamonds, rubies, emeralds, blue and yellow sapphires, coral, cat’s eye, hessonite and pearls), their jewellery has been designed exclusively by their in-house designers.
From the usual (think symmetrical chokers and two-line neckpieces) to the slightly unusual (I particularly liked one that reminded me of a Peter Pan collar, featuring marquise and drop-shaped diamonds with a Columbian emerald), the designs vary. The one unifying factor, however, is that every piece on display is set in white gold. “Precious white metals—like white gold and platinum—are the best mediums to bring out the natural shine and colour of diamonds,” says Kunal Maneck, director. While they do work with yellow gold (on request), they prefer not to.Rs.25,00,000 upwards. Details: 9884532260
