VOW Jewellery by Varuna @IIJW2015
Varuna D Jani is an artist with an amazing creative talent to design jewellery that will appeal to Indians as well as international sensibilities. The “VOW Show” from Varuna D Jani presented by GIA at India International Jewellery Week 2015 powered by GIA was a stunning offering to an appreciative audience of luxury jewellery.
The name Varuna D Jani has created waves in the jewellery business for several years. Her latest bridal collection of “VOW Modular Bridal Jewellery” is an extension of her earlier VOW (Very Own Wish) collection. Known for dreaming up ornaments, which can be mixed and matched or altered and adapted to suit the wearer’s needs; the collection was ideal for versatile wedding wear. Five impressive chandeliers stood on the stage; while one greeted the audience at the entrance of the Hotel Grand Hyatt Ballroom. The atmosphere was sophisticated, elegant and just perfect for the scintillating display that was to follow.
The show opened with a solo dancer from the Gloshow Events, who moved gracefully to the eternal Abba favourite “I had a Dream”, and unveiled the beautiful line of Varuna’s elegant jewellery. The assortment of earrings comprised styles that ranged from half-moon patterns, double loops, shell like patterns, paisley designs, pear shaped beauties and then moved on to giant emeralds surrounded by diamonds for statement rings. Long diamond chains with florets, a triple string version and a balanced ruby and diamond mix for neck wear and chandbalis completed the look.
Revealing to the audience, the magic of Varuna’s modular jewellery, six balletic dancers once again from the Gloshow Events appeared with bangles, which were gracefully assembled and dismantled for versatile wear. The second part of the show was devoted to magnificent wedding wear. Stylish masterpieces in gold, diamonds, rubies and precious gems were replete with the craftsmanship that Varuna is renowned for. Magnificent collars with inter-woven trellised patterns in gold and diamonds, lace edged cuffs and swirls of precious gems were turned into intricately crafted neckpieces.
Rubies and diamonds created magic for giant gold hoops, looped shoulder dusters, curved oval big earrings, giant diamond earrings, shell shaped options and clusters of spheres in gold, diamonds and emeralds to decorate the lobes. Size was impressive for the ear ornaments as well as the necklaces, which varied from mini choker bibs to oversized chandeliers. Varuna also introduced her VOW initiative that will nurture women’s dreams when she has already mentored talented designers and sponsored Gunjan Suri’s book “Sieve by Design”.
When it came to a showstopper, Varuna moved away from the celebrities’ path and instead honoured the man who made her dreams come true – her father, Mr Ramchand Popley, who happily walked down the ramp with daughter Varuna to thunderous applause. Thrilled with the success of the fabulous show, Nirupa Bhatt, Managing Director, GIA took the ramp with Varuna D Jani.
A piece of jewellery has to create magic for the wearer and the “Vow Modular Bridal Jewellery” collection by Varuna D Jani will surely end with the best for the bridal couple.
