October marks the onset of the wedding and festive season in India. A month in which numerous campaigns and collections are launched by various jewellers and fashion designers to tap in to the wedding fever, one jeweller has chosen to offer brides-to-be something different in terms of inspiration. 

Nirav Modi, one of the most highly regarded jewellers in India, has put together a book featuring wedding ensembles by 12 of the country's most sought-after fashion designers, complemented by his most prized creations. The result is a luxurious coffee table book that every bride-to-be will want to pore over, slowly, page by glossy page.

'The Essence of a Bride' is a first-of-its-kind bridal style bible, created in collaboration with celebrated fashion designers including Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla, Tarun Tahiliani, Gauri & Nainika, Gaurav Gupta and Ritu Kumar. Shot at the magnificent Baroda Palace, the book captures perfectly a bride's moods and expressions. An amalgamation of the best jewellery, bridalwear, photography and styling, it is the definite style guide for a luxury wedding.

"The essence of this book is to celebrate a woman on her very special day," explains Nirav Modi. "It is for a woman in search of excellence and elegance. Bringing together the best couturiers of the country and a love for jewellery, the book presents regal looks complemented with timeless jewels for the radiant bride."

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow.
