Mumbai’s Glitterati Flaunt Vintage Baubles

Written by Deepa SajnaniMay 16, 2014
Reviving the elusive art of bespoke vintage jewellery, duo Shweta and Nitesh Gupta of Bespoke Vintage Jewels (from Bengaluru), brought their love of fine jewellery closer to home turf at a fabulous luncheon at Mumbai’s favourite restaurant, Indigo. The event was hosted by Malini Akerkar and rightly titled ‘The Ladies Room’.

Tina Tahiliani, Zeba Kohli and Madhoo Shah were among the few divas that attended this event that had a three-course lunch and a boudoir set-up, making the woman feel every bit as royal as the precious jewellery showcased at the venue. Feeling proud and nostalgic about the collection, Shweta said, "my collection is about resurrecting antique jewellery with a modern twist. I have taken designs that were prevalent in the Mughal era.”

And sure enough, every piece of bauble we got our hands on spelled ‘timeless’ and ‘classic.’ Don’t trust us; let the pictures enthral you.

Changing my career to fashion at the age of 27 was a risk that I'm glad I took! I don't think there is any substitute for hard work. I can be overly shy and self conscious one day and feel like I can conquer the world the next. You have to try my caramel pudding and chicken soup and don't even dare playing charades with me—I'm super competitive. I love what I do and am always looking for a way to take it up a notch!
