AS SOON as the monsoon strikes the Bay of Bengal, celebration is in the air. The season of festivity brings colour and bliss. This is the time when Indian women, without whom the celebration would be futile, dress elegantly to match the occasion. And jewellery is an integral part of their attire. Since time immemorial, jhulas or swings have been associated with the festival of Sawan celebrated across North India. The tinkling of bangles makes the jhula special. So, Dwarka's jewellers bring the festival of bangles to revive the good old days.

Dwarka's claim to maintain purity and durability while presenting a thousand designs of bangles fused with traditional, Western and contemporary styles. The well-known jewellery house asserts to have broken the regional barrier with its collection of popular traditional designs from Kolkata and Mumbai as well as kada styled bangles from Punjab. Also available is the vintage Rajasthani filigree, jali, meena, kundan, jadau work, etc. Thus adding to the display an imperial touch.

The all-new range of bangles will be showcased at Dwarka's Greater Kailash showroom in South Delhi.

Meanwhile SIA has also launched its bridal jewellery, inspired from the splendour of Rajasthan The use of traditional mirror work, coloured beads, wire, uncut diamonds ad Kundan plated in silver, gold rhodium and copper add a dash of royalty and ethnicity to the jewellery. Available at DLF City Centre Gurgaon, the designs are crafted keeping mind all age groups and are priced between Rs.195 and Rs.30000.
