Bina Goenka’s Theia minaudiere sparkles with a thousand emeralds, amethysts and rubies


Before I even begin to describe this next creation, I must mention, all I can think is “exotic”. While in the past, the world may have witnessed millions of dollars worth of diamond-encrusted renditions by a Japanese jeweler in Tokyo and London, and even by high-fashion Hermès, the dazzling “Theia” is a mysterious minaudiere that decrees me dumbfounded. This bejeweled bag by India-based Bina Goenka is made from the finest Zambian emeralds, Mozambique rubies and African amethysts from Gemfields PLC. The astonishing accessory gives gemstones a stylish spin by containing them in a carryall that’s fit to find its spot in any sparkle savoring wrist. Theia taps into the feminine mystique by beckoning that inner goddess. This bag bathed in opulence strikes a chord with the modern woman on a quest for the decadent and astutely replaces antiquated weight-laden traditions with a breath of fresh practicality.

Colored gemstones from Gemfields PLC add to the designer’s vision of divinity by soldering and setting together into a gleaming base of gold. A total of 1091 precious stones, along with pearls and pink tourmalines and another 8199 pieces of white diamond do a glinting dance on 18 kt gold. So whether it is a diva’s day-in-the-park or a timid bride’s trousseau, Theia is the diamante studded divine inter-frien-tion no girl in her right, glamorous mind can refuse.

Though price of this ostentatious minaudière is available only on request, it would be fair to claim that, with all those gems, Theia would be sporting a tag close to a million dollars.
