Maharajah jewels-jewelry for the future inspired by the past!

I’m not necessarily a fashionista but I really do love a proper maxi skirt, maxi dress, or sarong paired with a tunic or a tank top for summer.  I’m super happy that these items seem to be ‘en vogue’ this summer.

So now that I have my maxi skirt and my cute tank, how should I accessorize?

Shalini Bhardwaj has the answer…..

Isn't she lovely?

She has created Maharajah’s Jewels-a style of jewelry that is inspired by rulers (or kings)-the most rich and bejeweled citizens of the world (at that time).  She has created pieces that resemble genuine heirlooms passed down from generations.  Her jewelry is handcrafted to actually appear to belong to a period where ALL jewelry was handmade but is also intertwined with Shalini’s personal and modern ‘twist.’

Maharajah’s Jewels:

-22 karat plated (base metal is silver)

-diamonds are simulated or quartz

-gemstones are natural; stone sizes are large

-reflective foils are placed behind set stones to allow them to shine brightly

-many pieces have delicate, colorful enamel backs referred to as “champleve”

But let’s take a look at some of the actual jewelry:

Maharajah Egyptian Filigree cuff

Maharajah Green Onyx & Quartz Necklace

Maharajah At the Heart Earrings

This is the type of jewelry that I just love to wear during the summer.  When I wear this type of jewelry, I think of long, loose flowy fabrics, walks on a beach during a sunset, and the most fabulous feasts! These pieces are truly wearable and so luxurious.  Shalini truly had the future in mind when she designed these pieces-they are for a fashion forward woman, who is financially savvy,  but values quality and craftmanship often overlooked in today’s jewelry market. Pictures don’t do these pieces justice-they are truly bold statement pieces meant to be worn and cherished!

    Yes I agree on the cuff! It is so beautiful! I love all the gem stones. It seems like most jewelery focuses on diamonds and a select few gems, it’s nice to see variation!
