Published by Crystal Art Publication the book is a visual treat on trending necklaces and takes the reader through various aspects that go into the design and manufacturing of necklaces, complimented with spectacular illustrations from 55 internationally renowned jewellery brands.
It was my pleasure to have the book unveiled by Mrs. Nirupa Bhatt, (Managing Director, GIA, India & Middle East) and Mr. Premkumar Kothari (Founder, Fine Jewellery India Ltd. and Chairman, Gems & Jewellery Skill Council of India) among the presence of members of Women’s Jewellery Association India at the GIA booth.

Necklaces are one of the most significant and sizable pieces of jewellery. Using a considerable number of diamonds and grams of gold, necklaces are closest to the wearer’s face and helps in bringing the maximum attention. Thus, an equally great attention is needed during their designing and manufacturing.
This book takes you through an in-depth detail on the elements that come together to complete a necklace. Taking silhouette, size, symmetry, mechanism and assemblage as the five principles of necklace design we have studied creations by numerous internationally renowned jewellery designers and houses. The book brings you up close and personal with a diverse assortment of necklaces, each having a distinct personality.
One exclusive chapter has been dedicated to some of the rarest necklaces from the world, each backed with its own special story. By the means of these necklaces, one can witness some of the greatest journeys of diamonds, gemstones and concepts; from unearthing of diamond and gemstones to the day of their unveiling.
