Mumbai, (ANI): Bollywood actor Sharmila Tagore walked the ramp wearing scintillating jewellery pieces at the India International Jewellery Week (IIJW) here on Wednesday.
Modern art jewellery pieces designed by Radhika Singh and Sayanta Sarkar were displayed. The overall collection blended intricately carved necklaces, armlets, and chains of uncut diamonds on corded strands and chunky gold bracelets. Sharmila Tagore said the jewellery collection had a touch of her native place, Kolkata.
“Wonderful designers and when I was asked to come and be the show stopper here, I accepted because there are couple of reasons behind this. As you know my daughter Sabah Ali Khan is also a jewellery designer and she is also participating," said Tagore.
“Suyanta is the seventh generation jeweller from his family and his family happens to be from Kolkata, so that is a huge connection and you must have gathered that from sindoor and the music and everything which had that Kolkata touch and of course the jewellery was fantastic," said Tagore.
The extravaganza showcases the collections of 30 designers, including Farah Khan Ali, Varun D. Jani, Bina Goenka and Rhea Nasta. Well-known jewellery brands like Mirari, Gitanjali, Amrapali, Tanishq and Ganjam are also participating.
Buyers from Japan, Russia, Britain, China, Italy, Malaysia, Libya, Morocco, Iran, the Czech Republic, Poland, Ukraine, Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan are taking part. India's first-ever Jewellery Week will end on Thursday.
