Forevermark and Narayan Jewellers Sparkle at Bibhu Mohapatra’s Fall Winter 2020 Show at New York Fashion Week

Forevermark collaborated with celebrated fashion designer Bibhu Mohapatra showcasing exquisite new designs by Narayan Jewellers from their Empress Collection at the designer’s Fall/Winter 2020 collection show during New York Fashion Week. The jewellery pieces were superbly crafted with beautiful, rare and responsibly sourced Forevermark diamonds.

For his Fall/Winter 2020 collection Bibhu drew inspiration from the modern Indian woman. Tying together the history of women throughout all facets of Indian culture, along with the evolution of Indian women throughout history and influenced by Indian poet Amrita Pritam’s novel Pinjar, the collection is a celebration of today’s resilient women. Infused with traditional Indian crafts from the world of textiles and arts along with modern architectural silhouettes, the collection incorporates bold colour and texture.

Complementing the exquisite artistry of Bibhu’s fashion designs, The Empress Collection expertly designed by Forevermark Jeweller, Narayan Jewellers by Ketan and Jatin Chokshi is set in 18K white and rose gold. It comprises seven capsule collections featuring ear climbers, ear jackets, chandelier earrings, asymmetrical earrings, stackable rings and cocktail handcuffs. Inspired by nature with a special focus on the universal concept of solar systems in all designs, the combination of flowers, centipedes, dew drops, sun, moon and stars are intelligently and beautifully entwined.

Narayan Jewellers, known for its precision and quality in hand crafted diamond jewellery, is currently celebrating their 80th anniversary.

“This is the fifth time Forevermark, our fine jewellery partner and I have collaborated with Ketan and Jatin Chokshi of Narayan Jewellers, who have created an exquisite collection of fine jewellery named “The Empress Collection”.
