Fresh, young and very, very wearable, legendary Indian jewellery house Amrapali celebrated its 10th Anniversary with a beautiful exhibition in New Delhi and London. Amrapali has juxtaposed traditional Indian craftmanship with surprising details, including hand-painted enameling inspired by Victorian-era wallpaper in Britain.
Amrapali showcased some of its finest vintage pieces together with an exquisite collection inspired by the lotus motif, which is incorporated into the Amrapali logo. The company displayed unique creations in gold and diamonds as well as antique silver tribal jewels. One of the best pieces in the collection was the royal necklace with multiple rows of ruby drops, a heritage necklace with triangular cabochon emeralds, necklaces studded with rubies in the shape of a lotus leaf, delicate feather earrings and a vintage peacock cuff were just a few of the pieces that caught my eye. Shortly afterwards, Amrapali hosted another historic evening at the V&A Museum. This event coincided with the major pearl exhibition taking place at the V&A this winter, which explores the history of pearls from the early Roman Empire through to present day.
Jewels were displayed not in cases but amongst antiques and red roses, which gave ladies the chance to try on magnificent bangles and necklaces studded with impressive uncut diamonds and precious gemstones.Many guests turned up to the event in Amrapali finery from their personal collections.
