India International Jewellery Week 2012 - Day 1

Models made their way down the runway at India International Jewellery Week 2012 (IIJW) decked out in gorgeous jewels. Absolutely stunning show with very popular designers.

Amrapali - A favourite of the Queen of Bhutan and the Maharanis of the Jaipur family, the 'Panna Collection' included gorgeous heavy jewellery with an Indian tribal feel. Emphasis on chokers, layered necklaces and heavy hair accessories.

Laxmi Jewellers - Absolutely stunning show with gorgeous jewellery including diamond, polki jadau, kundan, and antique kundan jewellery. Definitely a collection for a bride-to-be!

Gehna Jewellers - Beautiful collection with pearls, emeralds, diamonds and polki. Seeing quite a few choker necklaces in this collection as well; do we see a trend emerging? The only turn-off was Angela Jonson dressed as an angel at the end of the show with half-dressed men around her - though she looks gorgeous and the jewellery is stunning, it's a bit much! Reminded me of an Indian take on the Victoria Secret Fashion Show.

Eekani Jewellers - One of my favourite shows by far, Eekani Jewellers presented a collection of exquisitely elegant jewellery. Perfect for the modern woman who wants a classy look. Love!

Dwarkadas Chandumal Jewellers - If you love the bling factor this show is definitely for you! Named the 'Cocktail' Collection, this show is for the woman who does not want to be outdone. Though I'm not a fan of this type of heavy jewellery, I love the make-up and hair- inspired by the Orient.

Gitanjali Jewellers - I was so excited to see this collection, but after looking through the pictures this show seems more about the celebrities than the jewellery. From what I can see, the jewellery does look very beautiful and elegant but doesn't stand out much against the clothing and the celebrity appeal.
