CHENNAI: Celebrating history and tradition, Prince Jewellery, with more than 80 years of experience in jewellery design and marketing, inaugurated its annual event Ancient Secrets 2015 edition, showcasing antique jewellery from around the world, recently.
The speciality of Prince’s Ancient Secrets collection is not just the display of antique jewellery but the novel designs it has introduced by embedding traditional pieces into tasteful modern settings that will appeal to people of all generations.
For instance, rakodis, not so much in favour now, have been used as pendants; seven-stone studded ear pieces have been used to embellish necklaces; the traditional pambadam, thandatti and koppu too heavy to be worn as it is, have been converted to elegant jhumkas.
“One must have an eye for design to be able to reset traditional pieces in modern designs,” said founder of Prince Jewellery Princeson Jose. He personally suggests and supervises the designs because of his years of experience as well as intuitive knowledge.
