Ahead of the Curve

If combined aesthetically, jewellery and fashion can be an artistic expression. On the one hand we have jewellery by a couture house UMANE PARIS which captures nature by incorporating elements of feminine grace and modern artistry.

Its owners Valerie Brun and Mae Jund together have produced collections featuring heightened sensorial appeal. On the other hand, we have one of India’s gen next fashion designers JELIN GEORGE, a graduate from London College of Fashion, who revels in mixing feminine and masculine structures with delicate handcrafted embellishments. She designs for a modern woman who is strong and unafraid to embrace her masculine side yet look sexy and alluring.

Celestial Aura

If you are in a mood for contrasts then slip on these smooth cosmic rings mounted in 18-karat white gold, diamonds and onyx. They pair well with the structured jacket with power shoulders in duchess satin teamed with a long chiffon skirt. The mysterious jewels exude an aura of power and sublimity.

Urban Legend

Orbs are the shape of the season! Go for these multiple 18-karat galet rings in white gold, onyx, diamonds, and fancy sapphires and the complementary triple drop earrings. The jewels are a perfect foil to an embroidered over-sized silk tunic with cotton silk pencil pants – it is about striking a balance between structure and fluidity.

Cultivated Stance

Medieval meets modern fashion here. The statement earrings draw graphic references from the humble barley grain. Mimicking the grain to the tee, the earrings are crafted in 18-karat yellow gold, and are dressed up in brown diamonds and smoky quartz. Combine it with a jacket dress in duchess satin and crepe to score high on fashion.

Effortlessly Cool

Time after time, Nature is interpreted in various ways in jewels. Pick the multiple Ikebana rings crafted in 18-karat yellow gold and diamonds that look so refreshingly different. An oversized 18-karat yellow gold ring evokes lush grassy lands dressed up with diamonds, demantoids and cabochon spessartite. The jewels synchronise beautifully with a finely cut cowl-necked satin gown with a waist clinching belt.

Modern Life

It is time to step out in style. The 18-karat yellow gold bracelet lined with diamonds goes hand in hand with the zigzag ring centred on ebony that is swamped with yellow gold vines and leaves accented with yellow sapphires. The cactus-shaped yellow gold brooch is articulated with onyx and diamonds, fancy sapphires, orange sapphires, demantoïds, green tourmaline and green zirconia. The thread work embroidered gown in georgette lends a showstopping finish to the look.

Young at Heart

This ensemble gives you a girly look – the polka-effect embroidered top in silk crepe worn with cotton silk wide-leg pants harmonises with the ebony earrings crafted in 18 karat white gold and accented with diamonds and tourmalines. The onyx gem ring takes on the same elements and is set with diamonds and tourmalines. Top it off with a linked necklace made of 18-karat white gold with an onyx pendant and diamonds and you are ready to seize the day!
