8 Jewellery Shops In Delhi We Love For Their Stunning Collections

Whether we prefer it or not, we’ve all succumbed to online shopping at one point or the other. They’re easier to access that way, yes, but just like books, we feel jewellery is best bought standing in front of a mirror, holding up a pair of jhumkas to see whether they suit your face, or draping a necklace to see how it rests on those collarbones.

We’re bringing you our picks of jewellery shops in Delhi that we can never get enough of. Is your favourite here too?

Amrapali

Well, we’ll get the most obvious one out of the way right away. This Jaipur-based company makes jewellery {mostly silver, plus some that are gold-plated too} that is high on craftsmanship and simply breathtaking. Their pieces are inspired by India’s heritage, and given a modern, eclectic twist. The Chandrika collection, in particular, is so beautiful, we could cry. {And we have}.

Outhouse

The one thing we love about Outhouse is their distinct style—you take one look at someone sporting one of their pieces and there’s not a shred of doubt about it being from Outhouse.

They experiment with designs and materials like Swarovski, semi-precious stones, leather, and metal and gold plating—which eventually leads to pieces looking edgy, dramatic, and very, very classy.

Nimai

Nimai is possibly the best store to check out if you’re always on the lookout for newer, lesser-known brands that are anything but conventional when it comes to jewellery. They stock handpicked pieces by up and coming designers who’re giving stunning a whole different meaning.

The store is tiny, but has a lot. Plus, they keep adding new designers to their kitty, so you’ll find something fresh and beautiful every few months.

PS: Check out DhoraMalleka and Kichu to get an idea of the kind of jewellery you can find here.

Jain Silver Arts Jewellery

An old favourite of ours when it comes to inexpensive earrings, rings, and other trinkets, this store stocks designs which are hard to find anywhere else in the area. We’re forever lusting after their stunning heavy necklaces and pachhelis {think florals, kitschy elephants and filigree work}.

Regalia Jewellery House

Tucked away in the famous jewellery lane of Chandni Chowk, Dariba Kalan, Regalia is all about sleek, edgy designs in matte gold embellished with stones of all colours. They’ve got dainty chandelier earrings, chunky studs, sleek straight lines, and even a small cluster of traditional wares, including jhumkas and the like.

Their brass trinkets have won us over with their understated sheen, but if you’re looking for something a little more on the precious side, head over to the shelves behind the counter which is where they keep all the silver.

Apala

To say that Apala is an ordinary jewellery store would be an understatement. They have some of the most unique pieces, and their jewellery is made with silver coated in gold, which is why it’s a bit expensive. They use colours in great ways and the pieces are not cookie-cutter artificial jewellery pieces.

Symetree

From gorgeous temple jewellery, to gold and silver jhumkis & neckpieces studded with uncut diamonds, to chunky statement rings with semi-precious stones, Symetree has quite a variety when it comes to traditional-style jewellery. They even have pieces that are on the lighter side, so you need not head here just for wedding or festive shopping.

Silverline

You’ll find some of the best tribal-inspired jewellery we’ve laid our eyes on. Think Amrapali-like designs, only cheaper. While they have some contemporary stuff too, we’d recommend checking them out for their collection of beaded, stone, filigree, enamel, handmade, temple, kundan and polki work jewellery..
