Isha Ambani is the daughter of Asia’s richest man Mukesh Ambani, head of Reliance Industries, boasting a net worth of $95.6 billion. The Stanford graduate sits on the board of Reliance Jio Infocomm and Reliance Retail Ventures Limited. While her razor-sharp business acumen is worth discussing, it was her blindingly gorgeous jewel that got our attention. We come across several well-heeled business tycoons and billionairess, but even they don’t flaunt the gems that the Ambani clan is now known to dazzle in.
One such dazzler spotted on the Mother-of-twins made the world stop – a $20 million multi-strand diamond necklace. She donned the mouth-watering creation on two special occasions. After first wearing the ultra-expensive piece of uncut diamond jewelry five years ago at her pre-wedding festivities, the 31-year-old entrepreneur chose the excellent masterpiece for the opening of the NMACC. She opted for different pair of earrings to complement her show-stealing red Valentino gown for the gala night at the Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre.
The NMACC was a dream project for Isha and her billionaire mother, Nita Ambani, for which the only daughter of the affluent Ambanis chose a piece of jewelry that was clearly special for her. It doesn’t take a jewelry expert to decode the custom necklace’s worth that’s strung with at least 50 enormous uncut diamonds bringing the necklace’s value to over $20 million. The fashionable businesswoman is known for her refined taste. She once posed wearing a sapphire-studded $43,000 Hublot Big Bang Gold Tutti Frutti watch. The 18kt rose gold watch stands out owing to a rose gold bezel set with 48 Baguette cut orange sapphires. It is not just Isha who has a fine taste in timepieces her mother wears a $225,000 diamond studded Patek while her younger brother literally steals the limelight with his extremely rare $9 million Patek Philippe Grandmaster.
Her wedding finery included designs from India’s most sought-after designers, becoming the talk of the town for years to come. Weddings, fine jewels, and thriving businesses of the Ambani’s have always grabbed headlines. While Isha Ambani’s three-day magnum opus wedding in Lake Como and Mumbai garnered much attention, her twin Akash Ambani’s nuptials were also an extravagant affair.
The highlight of this occasion was the $55 million L’Incomparable necklace gifted to daughter-in-law Shloka by Reliance matriarch Nita Ambani. Deserving a museum of its own, this superlative piece of jewelry featured 200 carats of diamonds and a centerpiece yellow diamond weighing 407 carats. Another gem in its own right, one that the Ambani ladies are most proud of, is the NMACC, considered by Isha and Nita Ambani a fulfillment of a lifelong dream.
The mother-daughter duo aims to showcase the best of the arts both in India and the world. “At this Centre, we hope to showcase the best of India to the world and bring the best of the world to our home, India. The NMACC is not only the fulfillment of a lifelong dream. It is also the beginning of a journey to rejuvenate and reimagine creative experiences and expressions, to encourage and nurture talent no matter where it comes from. To give a platform and voice to the arts, the artists, and you, our very dear audiences,” stated Isha.
