Every Indian bride wishes to make a powerful statement at her wedding and what could be better than one steeped in the rich history of the Indian heritage? The unparalleled opulence of gold and polki can transform a bride into a regal princess with panache. The new collection from Latique features a selection of earrings, necklaces, maangtikka, bracelet and rings inspired by the motifs found in the mystical and grand palaces of India and also using the type of art only native to India.
Hansa Embellished with the rich polki and brilliant cut diamonds in 22k gold. The maangtikka styles a very rich Indian motif found in the mythical and historical palaces with details of green highlighting the evergreen design and heritage of India.
Maya The necklace is for the true maharani’s only. Embellished with the rich polkis and drops of pearls, the necklace styles a chikankari inspired full-flower motif in the centre, adding zest to the royal design of the polki necklace.
Samroopa With a minimal touch to the classic chikankari design. The earrings uses symmetricity to its advantage giving a subtle sensibility to a very flamboyant design.
Bhavya Representing the grandeur of the time gone by, the ring fashions not only the royal polki but also scintillating emeralds giving a stimulating twist to a rather modest design.
Gull Nargis Inspired by classic floral motifs found in traditional minakari work. The piece shows state of art mastery of the craft, the intricate designs speaks for itself.
“My endeavour is to create jewellery that compliments the wearers’ personality. I strive to create timeless pieces of jewellery which can be handed down generations. Each design ensures that every uncut diamond and every gem, be it a ruby, emerald or pearl, is set in a way that maximises its brilliance and beauty,” says Latique founder and designer Latika Khanna.
