Jet Gems has just introduced Canvas by Jet Gems, a new line of contemporary, fine jewellery conceptualised by designers Nishka Lulla, Nikhil Thampi and Nachiket Barve.

Each designer has brought their individual sense of style to the line. Nishka Lulla’s collection is fairytale-inspired, and uses gems in pops of red, blue and green. “The designs in this collection use vibrant colours that express feminine strength and individuality,” says Lulla.

Nikhil Thampi has designed long danglers and geometric rings for the line. “The interesting play of coloured gemstones in this line reflects upon the different facets of a woman. This line is an ode to women who break conventions and stand out as sparkling examples of innocence, strength and purity,” he says. 

Nachiket Barve’s returns to the leitmotifs of his ‘Chiaroscuro’ line – lotus and water lily leaves – and translates them in hand-sculpted gold. “I firmly believe less is more,” says Barve, who hopes to have delivered pieces that can multitask, and go with various looks from your wardrobe.    

Prices are between Rs 5,000 – Rs 1,50,000. Available from December 3. Jet Gems, Shop No. 2, 36 Turner Road, Bandra (West), Mumbai. Tel: 022 2644 2966
