A CELEBRATION OF INDIAN CRAFTSMANSHIP – KK JEWELS AHMEDABAD
There are so many jewellers to choose from when investing in jewels, Jewels that you want to hold on to and treasure, yet what is it that makes us stick to one ? We think its more relationship building than anything else. KK Jewels is always on our list when looking for that one special piece. Kailash from KK jewels makes us feel at home and tries to understand the clients needs, wardrobe and lifestyle. Designs ranging from modern chic to vintage glamour he has it all. We are truly spoilt for choice.
So much has been written about a woman’s relationship with jewellery but honestly there comes a time when we all want to break away from buying that next handbag or clothes and collect things which are timeless no matter the occasion big or small.
Dreams do come true
Kailash who has a young and dynamic team whom he is very proud of says ” our team will make your every dream come to reality”
Their main aim is to keep the jewels light in weight and all are so well engineered that for example, you have a stud to a drop to a long chandelier all in one earring ! Generally your old family jeweller wants to sell you whatever he has in stock, he doesn’t give you a room to share your ideas on the design, etc, whereas at KK they customise designs as per the clients needs, open to making alterations, changes since the bride’s brilliance is their only goal.
Kailash Kabra considers Indian heritage to be his biggest inspiration and agrees that it is a never ending subject. “Everyday there is so much to learn especially in Jadau jewellery. Its like wine, older the better.
The perfect combination of uncut diamonds, pearls and precious stones can make the most stunning piece of jewellery.
Bikaner and Hyderabad are the two cities that inspire KK Jewellery’s designing because of their heritage, culture and elegance.
This season its all been about yesteryear glamour, lots of maang tikaas, jhoomars, maatha pathis and nose rings have been preferred and kailash sees it being a hot favourite right through 2018.
Earlier, people used to buy jewellery with the perspective of weddings, events or varied occasions, but today, the thought process is changing. People like to collect jewellery as they would a piece of art.
“For me, Jewellery is more than an investment”. Kailash Kabra shares. “I feel an investment should be made in real estate, mutual funds, etc, jewellery is much more personal and add a sentimental value once bought. They must be treated exclusively. like how an Louis Vuitton, Hermes or a Chanel bag is bought more for pleasure of owning it and not just for the value” he explains.
- -Invest in a diamond solitaire and insist on a GIA certification.
- -Keep your jewels wrapped preferably in muslin cloth and not in velvet or leather
- -No perfume or makeup should touch the jewels directly
- -Visit your jeweller once a year at least to check that all your stones are still secure and in place
- Know that uncut, polki and vilandi are essentially all the same.
- when you are buying polkis , its best to examine in natural light and not the showroom lights.
- Look at the piece sideways to see all discolourations. For polkis the whiter the better, however they cannot be absolutely clean, look for table clean pieces.
STYLISTS ARE AVAILABLE BY APPOINTMENT.
