Sparkling diamonds, 22 karat gold created into amazing designs and fabulous path breaking trends made the Azva wedding jewellery show; launched by the World Gold Council a memorable opening on the fourth day of the Aamby Valley India Bridal Fashion Week 2012.
It was pure bridal couture fantasy in jewellery and as the associate sponsor of the Aamby Valley India Bridal Fashion Week 2012; the World Gold Council presented a feast for the eyes with the Azva jewellery collection. Each piece had the touches of master craftsmen and the seven promises made during the Saat Pheras came alive in the beauty of the ornaments.
Azva which comes from the Sanskrit word “Ashva” means Seven, which once again symbolizes the seven vows made by the couple on the wedding day.
Six lit baskets of assorted blossoms hung from the ceiling while the white and gold “U” shaped ornately designed ramp matched the stately five pillars on the stage.
The show opened with the melodious voice of Kamal Khan crooning “Tere Mast Mast Do Nain” from the hit film “Dabangg” accompanied by a live five-member band and the mood of the show was set for glitz and glamour.
The bridal jewellery had gorgeous necklaces, which dazzled under the arc lights, the earrings were a vision to behold and bangles twinkled daintily on the slender wrists of the pretty models.
The gold beaded necklace with circular drops, the Rani Haar with matching gold chandeliers and the flat shimmering necklace with ornate designs were visions of beauty.
Geometric circles added to the glitter of the neckpiece encrusted with precious stones and a delicate lacey flat necklace was teamed with trellised jhumkas. The many rigid necklaces were carved with intricate gold designs and the five swirls with pearl edging gave an interesting twist to neck décor.
With a myriad designs to choose from, the bride could also select the graduating pyramid set or the one with tiny clustered gold beads with a ruby centre. Multi chains for a Rani Haar, mesh gold neck ornaments with imposing pendants and the final gold and ruby floral choker, the high collar with funnel shaped earrings, cuffs and the giant leaf gold set were fabulous.
Ending the show were the newlyweds – the gorgeous Esha Deol and her dashing husband, Bharat Takhtani. Esha was decked in the most magnificent giant gold lacy rigid pearl edged necklace that covered her shoulders and was encrusted with ruby flowers with matching earrings and bracelets.
The stunning bridal wear designed by Anita Dongre added to the drama and grace of the ornaments as the models glided down the ramp.
For jewellery that will make the bride the most beautiful woman on earth, the Azva collection presented by the World Gold Council will delight everyone on that fabulous memorable day.
