“Jewellery is an art and art is for generations to treasure and feel proud of to own and wear,” says Asha Kamal Modi the brain behind Art Karat’s latest Awadh Collection. The collection, titled Umrao Jaan, is designed for those who desire unique wearable art. The jewellery crafted in Awadhi styles is textured with pearls and designed with detailed and intricate workmanship – a blend of Awadh heritage and modern sensibilities.  Awadhi jewellery has been a choice of royalty in the bygone age. Highly patronised by not only Nawab Wajid Ali Shah, but also by royals from Awadh to Lahore, the jewellery designs featured gentle use of embedded Navratna (nine gems) stones and pearls.
