Founders of high-end fashion jewellery brand Isharya, Gauri and Radhika Tandon have brought out their newest collection, La Conchita; just perfect for the summer season. They looked around for inspiration – to their everyday lives, travels, nature, and people – and zeroed in on the theme of water. “Summers are often associated with the seas, a mood of being free spirited and revelling in the art of Dolce Far Niente (pleasant idleness),” explained Gauri and Radhika.
The duo then came across Ernst Haeckel’s book ‘Kunstformen der Natur.’ “It was a treasure trove and every page felt like an encyclopaedia of inspiration. It was the first published journal documenting the lives of thousands of sea creatures. Every single entity more intriguing than the other.”
Thus was born the idea for Isharya’s SS19 collection, La Cochita (Little Seashell), referencing the coral reefs: cuffs, bangles, rings, studs and drop earrings are accented with resin and gold-plated brass. The colour palette segues through turquoise, coral and off-white, while the motifs are inspired by conch-shells, under-water ferns and sea creatures such as crabs and turtles. La Conchita is what you’ll want to sneak into your jewellery box on your summer holiday!
