If you are to believe Emily Dickinson when she posits, "Forever is composed of nows." — this almost Sita-har length necklace will stand witness to your trust for seldom has the present presented itself in so reserved a manner to secure for itself a future infinite. And since it's a very natural elaboration of the Kudrati Kanbala Necklace from a while go, it's been given a similar name that records its seamless spontaneity — Qudratan.
Created from the classic Naksha Kanbala of a decade ago which an accomplished Bengali bride from Ahmedabad felt ought to be incorporated into her wedding necklace, so enamoured of it was she, this jewel sees that exact kanbala replicated here as the centrepiece. The sidechains are the oft-seen tipki-kamal, here given a double ball border, with decorative bollards lined all along their outer edges. And the single flowers that form the terminal ends are a small stroke of care and consideration : why would they be there if not to 'connect' the Kanbala with the otherwise monastic sidechains.
As for the pendant, what can one say about something that's been seen on the ears of so many? The chasing, articulation of volumes, that touch of pearls, and the perfectly aligned swings all speak of a recherché jewel of great and gracious lineage. The makars too seem animated in conversation, and the merry-go-round jhumka with its drop-pearl clapper almost steals the show from them.
This is a 'now' jewel made for eternity by hand in rich yellow guinea gold imparted a light antique finish. May it prove fortuitous for the young lady and hold its place as a cherished heirloom in her family — now and forever.
