Jewellery designers Shweta & Nitesh Gupta will showcase their Luxe jewellery pieces from Bespoke Vintage Jewels @ Evoluzione.
Shweta & Nitesh Gupta, create jewellery that captures the artistic legacy of eras gone by. Drawing from the inspiration of Indian royal traditions and the Victorian era, working with raw diamonds, in combination with other navratnas (gem stones) to create jewels that are bold, dramatic and reflect an elegant style that adorned Maharanis, Empresses and Courtesans in the days of yore.
The Guptas, use traditional methods, hand crafted artistry and expert workmanship to create pieces of grandeur and extravagance with impeccable craftsmanship. Every piece is an original design, created to be a masterpiece. Rubies, emeralds, diamonds and other precious stones are sourced from around the world and are interestingly combined to develop opulent pieces with a modern twist. Another remarkable feature is that many pieces can also be worn on the reverse side – offering two completely different looks in one piece of vintage jewellery.
Bespoke Vintage Jewels’ collection encompasses statement neckpieces along with a selection of earrings and kadas.
“The names of our pieces are inspired by their royal designs such as Prana, Meenakshi, Zohara, Mayur, Falaknuma, Gayatri and Zubeida. Beautiful, bold and elegant, to be dressed like a queen, is the ethos of these vintage pieces. However in a modern context, these pieces can be easily teamed with a cocktail dress or a traditional saree. Bespoke’s jewellery is for women who are used to making heads turn with their sense of style and aesthetics”, says Shweta.
Shweta Gupta’s showcase of vintage baubles and ornate designs leaves jewellery aficionados mesmerized.
“My collection is all about resurrecting antique jewellery with a modern twist. I have taken designs that were prevalent in the Mughal era and worked on them. I have used and combined uncut diamonds with gold, emeralds, rubies, navratnas, carved idols to cultivate a contemporary feel while retaining the style, classic and timeless appeal of historic jewels”, she adds.
The collection will be showcased at Evoluzione at No 3, Khader Nawaz Khan Road, Chennai. Ph No: 2833 3627.
