It was one of the most spectacular shows that Mumbai had seen. PC Jeweller presented the “Best of the Best” shows featuring outstanding ornaments during the dual Grand Finales to end the third edition of India International Jewellery Week 2012.
Welcoming the audience, Mr Rajiv Jain, Chairman, GJEPC, announced that IIJW 2012 with 50 designers, 33 shows had 20 new names and was a great platform for budding talent in the jewellery business.
The Ballroom of the Hotel Grand Hyatt was a vision in black, white and silver. The massive backdrop with graduating angular stairs that rose from the stage to nearly touch the ceiling; had snow flake motifs shimmering on the sides. Through a glittering black crystal curtain, in the centre down a flight of stairs, the models emerged to show the 24 dazzling pieces of the PC Jeweller collection.
Creators of the most outstanding jewellery, PC Jeweller showed stunning rings, earrings, necklaces, bangles, pendants and sets in 22 K gold, diamonds, Kundan and Polki designs which created magic on the ramp. The contemporary collection was for the modern woman in light weight gold, while the specially crafted bridal line had exquisite pieces of gold and diamond jewellery.
Opening the show called “Glittering Panorama” with clothes created by to Kolkata designer, Anamika Khanna; the first model appeared wearing a magnificent ruby and gold necklace bracelet and earrings. From there the presentation moved to more exciting and beautiful creations. The emerald edged Polkis piece with long shoulder dusters, the V shaped thick diamond necklace with pear shaped ruby pendant with matching earrings and the rows of Polkis with ruby florets took the audience’s breath away.
Chokers glittered under the arc lights, diamonds dazzled for lacy spread collar pieces, while elegant shimmering cuffs clasped the slender wrists of the models. As the last model displaying four strands of diamonds with a pear shaped emerald pendant took her graceful walk down the ramp, the lights dimmed and the strains of the theme song from the Bollywood musical “Aaja Nachle” filled the ballroom.
Framed in the archway at the top of the stairs in the centre, was the lady with the dazzling smile that has hypnotized her fans – the one and only gorgeous Madhuri Dixit Nene, who sashayed down the ramp wearing a Anamika Khanna gorgeous black gown with embroidery displaying the magnificent PC Jeweller’s Polki Raani Haar collar and choker edged with pearls to thunderous applause.
Escorting Madhuri down the ramp, Mr Balram Garg, Managing Director, PC Jeweller - the brand that has sponsored the “Best of the Best” show for three editions was applauded by the audience for a glittering presentation.
