Raniwala 1881 has created a spirited,head-turning collection,drawing inspiration from bold Art Deco styles, alongside traditional motifs such as the crescent, peacock, lotus, paisley and star. The result is a true amalgamation ofEast and West, with an exquisite range of chic earrings, necklaces, bracelets, rings and more, in the richness of 14k gold, jadau, flat-cut polki diamonds, blue sapphires, corals and emeralds, amongst others.
For the pragmatic, urban Millennial who is always on the go, these pieces seamlessly travel from anelegant luncheon to an evening gala. Crafted as modern heirlooms, the Ready-to-Wear line can be easily passed down from one generation to another, in the same way that traditional polki and jadau jewellery have been.
