French luxury jeweller Van Cleef & Arpels devotes yet another collection to the signs of the Zodiac. The limited edition Lady Arpels Zodiac series comprises twelve dazzling horological compositions depicting the constellations.
Scorpio : The opal and diamond Scorpion dominates the dark blue enamel dial which is decorated with billows of mother-of-pearl and turquoise.
Sagittarius : The Archer takes aim at the white gold stars set with round diamonds amid clouds of mother-of-pearl.
Cancer : The yellow gold Crab embellished with pink sapphires rushes towards the shore as waves of mother-of-pearl and onyx come crashing down upon it.
Aquarius : The Water Bearer is covered in white diamonds and the urn is sculpted in white gold, lapis lazuli and diamonds. Diamond-studded white gold stars twinkle against mother-of-pearl clouds.
Virgo : The Virgo watch in white gold has a bezel, dial, buckle and crown set with round diamonds. The Virgin is depicted in white gold and diamonds, and the rest of the dial is prettified with mother-of-pearl and dark green translucent enamel.
Pisces : Crafted in white gold and diamonds, the Fishes swim across the dark blue enamel waters that are accented with yellow gold stars and mother-of-pearl appliqués.
Aries : The energetic Ram dotted with yellow and white diamonds bounces across clouds of yellow and white mother-of- pearl against a red enamel sky.
Taurus : The proud Bull rides across the night sky on the white gold dial set with diamonds, green translucent enamel, mother-of-pearl, and lapis lazuli.
Gemini : The inseparable Twins hide behind mother-of-pearl clouds as they float across the wild blue yonder covered in diamonds and white gold.
About nine years ago, we started ADORN with the belief that India was ready for a magazine dedicated to the art of fine jewellery. Unfortunately, our amazing and enchanting journey must come to a halt, for the time being. We would like to thank each of you for your continuous support throughout the years. For Spenta, ADORN was a labour of love and we sincerely hope you enjoyed reading it as much as we enjoyed conceptualising and publishing it.
Ace jewellery designer Mona Shah specialises in high-end 22-karat gold jadau jewellery, and silver encrusted with polkis.

The designer seeks inspiration from ancient tribal arts and crafts for the Tribua collection, which is crafted with sterling silver in single and dual tones. The Dakshinaya collection seeks design cues from South India, a land that was the repository of much of the mineral wealth of ancient India. Gewels by Mona . .
