Diamonds on and off the red carpet

Diamonds on and off the red carpet

It’s been raining diamonds in the past week—in Sunset Boulevard and in New Delhi. The best in diamond designs in the international market, designed for the Oscar ceremony that took place last night, was showcased by Forevermark in California. At home, the Surana Jewellers of Jaipur, who are famous for their traditional Jaipuri work, exhibited their designs.

The ‘A Diamond is Forever’ fashion show by Forevermark was held at Chateau Marmont on Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, California, all of last week displaying the five different red carpet looks.

Surana Jewellers, on the other hand, displayed a collection that had gold enamelled pieces with diamonds, emeralds and various precious coloured gemstones in traditional Indian style. The exhibit cum sale took place at the Taj Palace Hotel in New Delhi on 22-24 February. These designs bring together the royal traditions of Jaipur, but can also be worn as individual ethnic pieces to compliment western wear.

We bring you glimpses of both these extravagant shows.
