Fit for a princess:Models pose at the launch of Art Karat's five-day exhibition-cum-sale in Vijayawada on Wednesday.—
VIJAYAWADA: Adorned in eye-catching jewellery inlaid with stones, the model walked in and sashayed across the place, dropping broad hints on the gleam the venue would acquire in the next few days.
From the sparkling maang-tika (head ornament) to the splendid choker and a brilliant necklace, the collection was awe-inspiring at the exhibition of designer jewellery of Art Karat. A brand synonymous with gorgeous silver jewellery and exceptional kundan craftsmanship, the grand display marked the inaugural of a five-day exhibition-cum-sale of ‘Maharaja', a theme-based jewellery expo at Hotel Gateway on Wednesday.
A stunning collection of chokers, pendants, rings, bracelets, necklaces, and chandelier earrings made in the base metal silver with gold vermeil studded with precious and semi-precious authentic gemstones is spread out at the venue. “The Maharaja Collection is a compilation of designs from the private collection of Maharaja Bhupinder Singh Patiala, Maharani Gayatri Devi of Jaipur, and the Nizams of Hyderabad. This is the first time that a designer has replicated some of India's most celebrated royal jewels in silver instead of gold,” said Vikas Gupta, business development manager of the company.
More than 700 designs have been created for this collection and the entire range is priced between Rs, 2,000 and Rs. 1,00,000.
The Art Karat collection of jewellery had been showcased in over 10 Bollywood blockbusters such as ‘Devdas', ‘Monsoon Wedding', ‘Kamasutra', ‘Zubeida', and the recent film ‘Yatra', Mr. Gupta said.
The exhibition is open to public from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. till Sunday.
