We discovered local label Quirk Smith at Kitsch Mandi and were besotted by their bold designs that mix elements of antique with modern details. Old coins, nuts and bolts, tribal motifs and shapes form the core aesthetic of this label. We especially like their D-shaped metal bangles, a carved metallic pair of scissors which moonlights as a brooch and spear-shaped earrings available in gold and silver hues.

Price: INR 1,000 upwards
