Gauri Khan has been an icon for all things luxury for the longest time! The celebrated interior designer and producer has been known to be very private and so it’s been lovely to see her share the screen, albeit briefly, with her friends on an OTT platform, launch her own show on interiors and even make an appearance on Karan Johar’s show after an 18 year hiatus! With the festive season around the corner, we meet Gauri at the launch of luxury atelier Zoya’s magnificent new collection “Beyond- A Boundless Journey”, where she introduced the collection along with Ajoy Chawla, CEO Jewellery Division, Titan.
Zoya takes pride in its positioning as the most design forward atelier in the country. This season Zoya presents its most elevated expression of design, with its newest offering Beyond—A Boundless Journey. This magnificent collection captures the essence of a woman’s journey through the course of her existence, finding inspiration in the glory of the Indus. The narrative celebrates the feminine spirit as a force of nature drawing an analogy from the passage of the rivers. Her continuous, larger than life journey through genesis, conflict, turbulence and calm, is expressed through the line-up with exceptional gemstones. Statement pieces are set apart by purity of form and graphic lines to create an imperial look with an exceptional combination of stones to present a contemporary collection of timeless classics.
“Zoya has always impressed me with jewellery that is timeless, yet has a contemporary expression. With Beyond – A Boundless Journey, the atelier presents a magnificent collection with artistic pieces that are worthy of a connoisseur’s collection and a narrative that will charm every heart,” says Gauri.
Gauri picks her three favourite pieces from the collection for us:
Your favourite piece: Flush of Evergreen
“This necklace I’m wearing is my favourite piece from the collection. I love the complexity of design in this and the combination of emeralds with pear and round diamonds set in rose gold. This unique piece of craftsmanship reflects the might of the river that overcomes obstacles in its path like pebbles, rocks and stones, and continues to flow”
A piece you’d pick from the collection for Suhana: Tranquil At Sunrise
“This is a beautiful ring that I might pick for Suhana. It has beautiful round emeralds flanked by baguette diamonds with a lovely central morganite. It’s like the sun rising on the river.”
Love at First Sight: Emerald Riversong
“I love emeralds. They are even rarer than diamonds and they are a symbol of hope and renewal. In this piece Zoya honours emeralds in their finest glory. Clean silhouettes combined with versatility make a stunning statement. It’s quite lovely.”
