Amrapali Indian jewels at Cannes Film Festival

Indian actress and Cannes jury member Vidya Balan wore a traditional Indian sari and jewels by Amrapali for her red carpet appearances at the Film Festival 2013


Jaipur-based jewellery powerhouse Amrapali is no stranger to the red carpet. So it is no surprise that at the Cannes Film Festival this year, Amrapali was present at the highest-profile event for the film industry. 

Vidya Balan, the Indian actress and member of the Cannes jury, chose to wear Amrapali jewels with her sari to the 'Bombay Talkies' premiere at Cannes Film Festival. Another famous Indian actress, Freida Pinto, chose to wear Chopard and not the more traditional Indian sari and jewellery look. 

Vidya Balan's jewels consisted of yellow gold South Indian temple jewellery featuring religious motifs of gods as well as large tribal earrings with strong geometric patterns. Colour was present in the multi-stone rings that Vidya wore, giving her red carpet look a distinctly Indian flavour as she flew the flag for the jewels and clothes of her country.
