Mukto-Pushpa Hirer Mala

Distinctly Edwardian in its construct, this supremely elegant festoon necklace in 18K yellow gold (you’ll know about the yellow bit later) is not of our design but a faithful replica of a family jewel...

Mahali Hath-Pakha Sita-Har

Detachment, in the most basic understanding of the word, can mean separation. And after a period of more than two months of forced silence we’ve felt that meaning more than ever in our heart and mind,...
