Last month I got a chance to witness the extravagant exhibit of the Rivaah collection from Tanishq at the Sonar Sansar Jewellery exhibition. The Rivaah collection encompasses a wide range of stunning handcrafted wedding jewellery for brides from across India, designed and conceptualized by the design team in Bangalore. Rivaah is the amalgamation of Tanishq’s tradition and craftsmanship – Rivaaz and the sacred bond of marriage – Vivaah. Irrespective of which part of the country a bride hails from, jewellery is always an integral part of the wedding ceremonies. Rivaah comprises of ornate creations in gold, diamond, Kundan and Polki, to cater to a bride hailing from any community across India. Every piece of jewellery from Rivaah, be it a haathphool for a Punjabi bride or a kamarbandh for a Kannadiga bride, is a Tanishq masterpiece in itself. Jewellery from Rivaah collection is priced at Rs. 1 lakh.
It was quite a task for me to create a look from the wide variety of jewellery available. Keeping in mind the outfit I wore, which was a basic v neck white tee worn backwards to give a mock neck effect over a grey maxi skirt with printed hem, I opted for a heavy statement choker and earrings which was from their Marwari bride collection. It had this beautiful Polki detailing which made me completely fall for it. After wearing all these pieces I felt that something was still missing and that's when I thought of incorporating some Bengali elements too. So I layered the choker with a traditional Bengali haar and bangles. And the end result was that I was all set to attend a wedding if not be the bride.
