    "I think this idea of heirlooms is something that we pass on – not just the actual piece, but also just the idea of appreciating these things and holding on to these memories.

    "I remember wearing them and thinking, for the first time, jewellery actually makes a woman look beautiful. Because those earrings just made me look beautiful. And that’s such a magical thing about jewellery. It's very much how it makes you feel, you know. I love that moment that when a woman holds a mirror up and tries a pair of earrings and makes a decision that they suit her or they don’t. It follows no logic, it's how she sees it on herself. That moment when a woman does this is so initimate. Its her idea of her beauty." - Nonita Kalra distills all the feelings that jewellery makes us feel in words, like only she can.  View Post

    "I like really special things, whether its precious materials or something that’s beautifully made. I care about how it’s made, or the story behind it, or emotional connections like having something passed down to me...I like to mix metals, gold and silver, or wear Indian jewellery with just a regular t-shirt or blazer." - Spardha Malik brings her instinctive high-low take on fashion to how she perceives jewellery.  View Post
