Q What are the jewelry style rules you live by?
Priyanka Kapadia Badani, Fashion Director, Vogue India, “For me, jewelry is an extension of my personality and mood for the day. It is so personal, the beauty of jewelry is that there are no rules, it’s never too much or too little. Over the years, I have started investing in vintage and unique pieces of handmade jewelry designs; mostly fine or demi-fine jewelry.
Every piece of jewelry I own reminds me of special people, places, and moments and it’s the best way to create your own unique jewelry collection; I purchase demi-fine jewelry to celebrate each and every milestone in life.”
Q Beyond aesthetics, what, in your opinion, could jewelry stand for?
Akanksha Kamath, Fashion Features Editor, Vogue India, “Jewelry says so much about a person; Is it bold and gold? Or more nomadic and steeped in spiritual symbols? Ultimately, jewelry is a kind of character study. And as a storyteller, I could just watch and learn so much.”

There is great happiness in dressing up for yourself and jewelry, small or big, statement or heirloom, should tell a story that will build on old memories and help create new ones.”
