As a child I was always attracted by shiny paper wrappings and started collecting them for no specific reason. My obsession was short lived after someone told me I was like a crow bird. All grown up there is no longer a need for me to keep my shiny candy wrappers anymore, I get to decorate myself with shiny jewelry! A beautiful brand that caught my eye is Aks Jewels by Indian designer Alka Kumar, who has been an admirer of diamonds from a young age. She designed her first jewelry piece at 16 and attended the Indian Diamond Institute to fully embrace her passion. Her brand Aks Jewels is a perfect combination of contemporary and traditional Indian design and consists of necklaces, rings, earrings, pendants and bracelets.
Enter a world of luxury with Aks Jewels. Their collection contains a variety of precious gemstones, from sparkling rubies, emeralds and sapphires to diamonds combined with white corals. Aks Jewels also specializes in custom made designs according to the client’s taste and budget. A service that suits occasions like weddings or anniversaries perfectly. I personally love custom made jewelry, a timeless piece that gets passed down from generation to generation and stays in a family for decades. I cherish the custom designs I inherited from my own grandmother. Nothing more rare than wearing a piece of jewelry ‘designed’ by your grandfather as a gift to your grandmother. It carries history and emotional value which makes it a special piece to wear. Buying luxury jewels is in that sense a great investment and a custom made service makes the buying experience extra special.
Alka Kumar’s designs have recently hit the runway for the first time during the Indian Federation for Fashion Development’s ‘India Fashion Summit 2013’. Her beautiful designs have been displayed at many exhibitions and attract an impressive clientele. Take a look at the gallery for pieces from a collection inspired by nature and Indian history. I like how some of the pieces are fine, simple and modern while others have a very classic and traditional design with a touch of modernity that makes it appealing to a larger audience. The floral piece with diamonds and pink gemstones is my favorite along with the simple oval shaped gold and diamond earrings.
