We’ve all had that ‘holy guacamole’ moment when we step out for the first time in our newest accessory, only to face the horror of having spotted someone in the exact same thing. Call it vanity, but it’s nice to able to show off some bling without being upstaged, isn’t it? That’s exactly what Pia Talwar had in mind when she created her line, ‘Garb & Bijoux by Pia’. Her brand, launched in late 2014, features silver, gold-plated and semi-precious stone jewellery in a wide range of accessories. There are the usuals – neckpieces, earrings, bracelets, cuffs and rings, and additionally, hand-harnesses and maang-tikas.

She caters to a niche clientele, through exhibitions and personal appointments, and ensures absolutely no repetition of styles. Her focus is one-of-a-kind pieces, with the finest workmanship and the absolute highest quality of stones, which she has manufactured all over India. Point to note: she specialises in ‘thewa’, which is a technique that involves embossing intricate gold work onto molten glass; she is one of the only jewellers to carry this kind of work. For the perfect marriage of contemporary style and opulence of Indian culture, Garb & Bijoux by Pia should quickly become your go-to.
