The Jewel Box

In Carolina Herrera


It was a navy blue Carolina Herrera gown for Padma Lakshmi at the Emmys which she accessorized with a necklace from her own collection (one which we loved).

I love the color on her and as much as the minimalist in me rejoices in her gradual move (away) from this infamous appearance, I can’t help but wish for slightly more dramatic hair and make-up.

In Anaikka


When I first saw this Anaikka shoulder sling, besides thinking that the sling is a crazy idea, I couldn’t even imagine it looking good on anyone. Masaba changed that for me completely by pairing the gold sling with an all-white outfit. On her, I totally loved it although I doubt I could ever pull it off.

What I do unequivocally love though would have to be that necklace on Anupamaa. Also an Anaikka, I so wish I had jumped on when it was still on sale (on!

In Amrapali


Amrapali continues to bling Hollywood with Troian Avery Bellisaro and Amber Heard being the latest to sport its jewellery at the 9th InStyle Summer Soiree. Troian wore a Rose Cut Diamond Necklace that retails for a whopping $22,690! In comparison, Amber Heard who was also at the same event went for Victorian Diamond Earrings that were relatively cheaper at $1840. :)

At another event (see inside), Sofia Vargera sported a Yellow Gold and Diamond Cuff that was $4,350 but if you are disheartened that all Amrapali is expensive, bringing in some respite was Vanessa Hudgens sporting Gold Vermeil and Turquoise Earrings that retail for $260.

In Suhani Pittie


Am a sucker for statement jewelry and love the Suhani Pittie one that Rhea is sporting; too bad we don’t have a picture of the outfit she paired it with!

Catch more pictures from the event here.

In Amrapali


At their respective events, these ladies chose Amrapali as their bling of choice. While Paula wore the Amrapali Starburst Earrings (which retails for about $10,370), Jada wore Amrapali Yellow Gold and Diamond Earrings (that retails for $1,670).

We love Amrapali but much prefer their more traditional/ethnic silver jewelry personally. However, it’s always great to catch their jewelry on both home-front and international red carpets/events.
