Lai’s Raj-Inspired New Collection Is Sure To Add Sparkle To Your Jewellery Box

Ten-Second Takeaway

For their festive collection this year, Lai is going back in time to the era of the British Raj, when Victorian influences dominated the clothing and accessories in India, and more so the jewellery of the Indian royals. Timeless and gorgeous, we’re tripping on their new set of nose pins as well. 

Silver Linings

Over the years, Lai’s collections have earned a whole lotta love thanks to their contemporary interpretations of age-old craftsmanship. Previously, their collections have explored techniques like Thappa {die-stamping from Jaipur}, elegant motifs from the Mughal period, and they’ve even incorporated vintage coins into their pieces. This time around, the Victorian age comes back to life in the form of teardrop earrings, gold-plated bird earrings, neo-ethnic, pearl-encrusted cluster rings, and of course, horseshoe pendants with little pearls and diamantes for luck. In fact, there is a lot of symbolism going on in this collection, be it the horseshoe, the buttercup flowers for happiness and swallows for eternal love. We also love their use of rubies and amethysts to bring out the passion and devotion the two stones represent. 

Going Back In Time

Elegant, traditional yet quite contemporary, the pieces are versatile enough to be paired with a traditional sari or with a chic dress. With prices starting at about INR 3,000, we might even be tempted enough to buy these as Christmas presents for very, very loved ones!

From the designs that are displayed on their website, we love the pearl-encrusted swallow pendant, as well as the delicate crescent moon earrings filled in with flowers — apparently symbolic of feminity, and an ideal gift for a bride! Since they’ve also replenished their nose pin section, spare some budgets for those trendy pieces. Birds, funky arrows, cutesy butterflies or dual-tone flower ones, we’re going crazy trying to pick the ones we want… because we want them all!
