On 11 May, surrounded by Delhi's glitterati and royalty, the exquisite diamond boutique Zoya, from the House of Tata, launched its latest collection, Jewels of the Crown. Through these regal new pieces, Zoya narrates tales of aristocracy and centuries of royal decadence to appeal to its discerning clientele, who place great importance on design.

Nisha JamVwal, Zoya's Luxury Consultant and a leading socialite, hosted the enchanting ball and royal banquet at The Taj Mahal Hotel in Delhi, recreating a royal grandeur surrounded by Delhi's most elite circles, who dressed in ballgowns and wore their most impressive baubles.

"There has always been a symbiotic relationship between royalty and jewellery. This new collection takes its inspiration from the royal era. People often ask me what the USP of Zoya is and I say it is a luxury brand that spells trust and creates heirlooms," says JamVwal.

As the name suggests, the collection travels back in time to recreate the aura of the regal era, with jewels crafted from gold, diamonds and other precious gemstones such as emerald, tanzanite and rubies. Each piece is unique and reinforces Zoya's emphasis on style and craftsmanship.

Representing the various monarchies of Europe, the necklaces mirror iconic tiaras of the time. Featuring exquisite enamelling similar to that found on the famous Fabergé Romanov eggs - a trademark of certain noble houses - the collection sees white enamel delicately cloaked in rich gold and diamonds. Emerald drops are suspended from pressure-set diamonds and delicate earrings dazzle with diamonds and opulent gold, paying tribute to their Royal heritage.

Walking inside Zoya's boutique, elaborate window displays showcase the new collection thematically. A meticulous combination of fabric and threadwork to make the jewellery really stand out, it reinforces the fact that Zoya is not merely a jewellery store but a fascinating gallery of fine art, where indulgence comes alive in fine designs of gold, diamonds and precious stones.

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.
