I have always loved delicate jewellery. And I've definitely always gravitated towards pieces that are more fine and elegant over chunky and bold (just a personal preference). With that in mind, is it any surprise that Kiri Kiri halted my Instagram scrolling immediately? Not so much.
Now Kiri Kiri is rather an unusual name, and no wonder I couldn't place it. Its origin is Maori and it means gemstone. And that's pretty representative of what the brand is about too. And it's not purely aesthetic either, Kiri Kiri also works with the ancient art of gemstone healing and their designs explore both the healing power of gems with a contemporary design aesthetic. Their birthstone line of jewellery is a perfect expression of that duality. Each of their pieces are handcrafted and made by Indian craftsmen. They work with rural communities and provide employment to women in these communities, something that's pretty close to my heart - sustainability and economic empowerment.
The collections are perfectly geared for everyday life and ideal to even work from home. I fell for their collection of delicate pendants and necklaces like semi-precious turquoise, rose quartz, citrine and more. They've also got earrings and beaded bracelets. As all the pieces are handmade, no two are alike, and you need to treat them with care. They also do customised options for some of their jewellery and if you want a matching set, you can reach out to them for details.
Prices are on the luxe side here, and you can expect to shell out between INR 1,500 to INR 6,000.
