The jewellery lovers of New Delhi have found a new address for exquisite diamond creations: the Nirav Modi flagship boutique. Situated in the upmarket Defence Colony area, it is Modi's first retail boutique in India.

Sprawled over 6,000 sq ft on two floors, the boutique has been tastefully designed by the Spanish artist-designer Jamie Hayon. The interiors, jewellery and window displays are typical Nirav Modi, with the emphasis on theatricality and attention to detail. Opening onto a luxurious ground floor with a colour palette ranging from black and grey to stark white, with flashes of the brand's signature vermillion red hue, the most eye-catching element is the mirrored ceiling, which makes the space look larger than life. Faceted like a diamond, a mirrored stairway leads to the first floor, with its dedicated bridal salon and a workshop where artisans craft jewels as customers look on. 

Modi has designed several collections to mark his transition from 'by appointment' jeweller to boutique owner. His bestselling Embrace collection, comprising bangles crafted from an astonishing 800 moving parts, has been redesigned in new patterns and finishes. New jewels in the Orchestra collection include a stylish bracelet and ring decorated with a contemporary floral motif and set with rose-cut diamonds.

The launch night saw a unique fashion show with not just models but also Modi's clients walking down the red carpet, dressed in jewels from his latest collections. Speaking at the event, Modi said: "It gives me great pleasure to launch a boutique in the heart of the country and close to people who I believe have always been appreciative of the Nirav Modi design ethos, craftsmanship, innovation, quality and rarity. We look forward to adorning every individual that walks through our doors and doing so in a way that makes it an unforgettable experience for her."

Help us make the future bright

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.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

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 in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
