Understanding the nuances and intricacies of jewelry is an acquired taste. Like fine art, it requires a discerning eye and innate flair. For Ahmedabad based Aditi Amin, an investment banker turned jewelry designer and entrepreneur, serendipity is what got her to shift gears to fine jewelry making. The Jewellery Diaries gets an insider access to her journey and freshly brewed Uncut collection.
The designer, who’s journey dates back to the year 2011, has come a long way from the time she designed silver jewllery. Luckily for her, her innate flair worked in her favour and she went on to create designs hitherto unseen in polka category. Aditi is on a rather interesting quest to contemporize traditional form of designs and move it beyond occasion wear.
The line, albeit deeply rooted in heritage, gives a completely new twist to way polka jewellery is designed. Making use of the traditional Indian jewellery-making technique of Polki, a contemporary and more modern style of jewellery has been rustled up with immaculate precision. The pieces on offer are understated, minimal & elegant. Her motto: Indian jewellery should move beyond occasion wear.
What’s more, the elaborate range of pieces are set in gold frames & embellished with uncut diamonds & natural stones. The jewellery is multi-purpose and very functional. Needless to say, one can team it up with western as well as Indian wear and thus spruce up an otherwise ordinary look without much ado.
