Bhima Jewellery's Antique and Uncut Diamond Festival is on until April 11

Bhima Jewellery is holding an Antique and Uncut Diamond Festival. The festival will showcase a range of uncut diamond jewellery and a collection of antique jewellery.

Says Shuhaas Rao, managing director of the showroom: “Antique jewellery is quite popular among the denizens of the city. The designs are classic and hence you can pass down a piece of antique jewellery from generation to generation, as it will never go out of style. You can team antique jewellery pieces with Indian and Western wear. People opt for uncut diamond jewellery as it is cheaper than buying a polished diamond set.”

The antique jewellery showcased at the festival includes exquisitely crafted classic temple designs, kundan jewellery and Mughal designs. The collection has been sourced from across the country. While most of the jewellery collection from the North of India has precious stones set in the Kundan style, those from the South have uncut rubies and emeralds set in gold. The pieces of jewellery have a black and copper polish to give it an old world look.

For those who do not relish the ‘old is gold' look can opt from the range of contemporary designs at the uncut diamond jewellery section. While a ring from the antique jewellery section starts from Rs. 20,000 onwards, a ring from the uncut diamond jewellery section starts from Rs. 35,000.

The festival is on until April 11.
