The Taj Mahal is the muse for an exquisite collection of jewellery by Tanishq. In the traditional set, with Mughal motifs, jali work, white marble finish with blue inlay work, creeping vines, stylized flowers, you’ll spot the Taj from a mile. The work in these pieces is in panch-rang meena, kundan polka, and diamonds set in the traditional technique of takkar.

The more contemporary set features somewhat futuristic designs inspired by the monument—a bangle encrusted with black and white diamonds celebrates the Taj’s silhouette.
From dawn to dusk, the sun lights up the Taj at different angles and hues, and the 110 pieces in the collection capture these moods—with light twilight pink earrings or vibrant pieces reflecting Mughal grandeur.
Available at select Tanishq stores across the country. Prices for individual pieces start at Rs40,000.
