Ten-Second Takeaway

Contemporary, sleek jewellery made from old watch parts, electrical fuses, cement and other industrial junk, Metallurgy takes upcycling to a whole new level.

Started by Advaeita Mathur {who started her career with Tarun Tahiliani}, the brand is all about contemporary art, but with an utilitarian twist.

Metallurgy boasts of a collection of ready to wear jewellery and accessories primarily in metal, played off by bits of cement, gears, or even wrenches; anything Advaeita comes across and feels she can mould into something pretty and functional. Choose from chic earrings, lapel pins, cuff links, infinity bangles, rings and even some home decor items like the trombone lamp.

They’re open to customisation as well.

Having stepped into the home decor segment through her lamps {made out of old, salvaged musical instruments}, Advaeita aims to expand her brand to more than just jewellery. Using technology and art together, she’s also looking to get into 3D printing soon.

The designs are not mass-produced and hence, have eclectic value: We say they’d make great statement pieces.

Price: Jewellery starting at INR 2,700; lamps starting at INR 15,000
