“Jewellery is like the perfect spice – it always compliments what’s already there.”

– Diane Von Furstenberg

Luxurious diamonds, vintage pearls and regal gold have been ruling the world of jewellery for ages. But with new and unconventional designers pushing the envelope of jewellery making by working with unusual materials like metals, coins, ceramic, wood, porcelain etc, the language of contemporary jewellery designing has certainly been redefined. Possessing an ability to transform even the most basic outfit, jewellery indeed is like a perfect spice that always complements what’s already there. Don’t you agree?

Whatever your reason is, the thought of having the right jewellery (even if its to brighten up your sleep wear!) can be fretting!
