Asia’s richest man, Mukesh Ambani’s wife, Nita Ambani, is a 60-year-old businesswoman, philanthropist, and fashionista par excellence. The chairperson and founder of the Reliance Foundation, has repeatedly made the world stop with her sartorial choices, dazzling gems, and incredible jewels. From sporting a $25 million armlet that once belonged to a Mughal emperor to stunning the world with her $7.5 million emerald necklace at her son’s pre-wedding festivities, magnificence comes as second nature to the Reliance matriarch.


On the second leg of the extravagant pre-wedding festivities of Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant, the very elegant Mrs. Ambani opted for a custom Oscar de la Renta creation. She looked resplendent, but what caught our eye was her breathtaking $360,000 Jacob and Co masterpiece. The founder of NMACC teamed her pristine white gown with a gem-set Fleurs de Jardin packed with pink sapphires. The timepiece is a true asset, which is why the first lady of Indian business repeated the watch. She had previously worn the eye-catching stunner at her grandchildren’s birthday party in Mumbai. It is the humble nature of the wife of Asia’s richest man, worth $113 billion that she opted to team her outfit with an exquisite timepiece and perhaps a favorite of the grandmother of four.

The floral timepiece is an enchanting statement as the gem-clad pieces rotate counter-clockwise 360 degrees every 10 minutes and are adorned with 46 blue sapphires totaling approximately 1.05 carats. The Astronomia Fleurs de Jardin model, crafted in 18K rose gold and enhanced by a dainty butterfly-shaped clasp, is limited to 101 pieces. A true horological masterpiece for a true connoisseur of style!
