Harakh presents a high-end designer collection colonized with fancy-cut diamonds in gold or platinum this season. The collection transcends aesthetics and impeccable craftsmanship. Harakh Mehta, a fourth-generation diamantaire, is rooted to Indian culture and is influenced by Indian motifs, including the elephant, a symbol of wisdom; the peacock, our national bird; the frangipani flower, a symbol of immortality; and a traditional haveli.
Each piece of Harakh fine jewellery is crafted using modern technology in tandem with ancient techniques. The gold surface of pieces in the Sunlight collection features granulation technique similar to the Indian artisanal fabric-decorating technique called khadi or pota, creating beads that are raised above the surface of the textile. “We have reinterpreted this on metal as homage to India’s rich craftsmanship,” says Mehta.
Each piece of Harakh is accompanied by a Reflection Card that mentions the jewel’s inspiration and how it was created, which is personally written by Harakh Mehta. “We try to see the soul of the design along with the processes involved in it,” he explains. “We connect it to deeper levels and search for meaningful connection that promotes well-being.”
