We are living at a time where responsible shopping is the need of the hour. Eco-friendly, ethically-sourced, social impact-driven products are on the rise and the least we can do is to buy them. Serendip Boutique is one such online jewellery brand based out of Chennai. Started by Poongothai Chandrahasan, this social enterprise makes serene and eclectic looking neck chains by employing Srilankan Tamil women refugees and the proceeds directly get used for the betterment of their lives. Lovely, right?
Serendip's collection includes Vastha - upcycled cloth necklaces covered with wooden beads and brass, Dhariya - semi-precious stone collection in hues of blue and white made of opal, moonstone, citrine, crystal quartz, turquoise and Isya Pastel- an ethereal range of neckpieces embedded with yellow topaz, garnet and coral. Serendip Boutique has a serene collection of unisex neckwear too that includes Shabdoksh - boho-looking neck chains made of upcycled bones and semi-precious lava, Kshatriya - earthy-looking metal beaded chains crafted with wood and Lombass- chic looking chains made with lava beads and metal tassels.
We also loved their high-end Samraji collection that is carefully crafted with kundan, pearl, agate and jade onyx. If you are looking for luxury jewellery for weddings, this can be the right fit for you! Some of their neckpieces come with matching earrings too. Prices start from INR 1000 and go as high as INR 10,000.
