Athiya brings you timeless silver jewellery handcrafted by artisans only to resonate with your taste and persona. Meaningful, intentional and made to measure is how the label describes itself. If you’re looking for delicate baalis or inscribed lockets to solidify your love this year, we suggest investing in some lovely Athiya pieces that add meaning to your vanity.
A homegrown alternative that brings you strikingly bold and uber-chic jewellery inspired by the creator’s moods, influences, and the next big overture when it comes to the world of bling, and it is never mass-produced. We’re talking Vivien Wood-esque pendants, retro heart sets and classic pearl trinkets — each piece designed to add character to your aesthetic.
At Violxtsthetics, you’ll find non-toxic, artistic pieces moulded and crafted carefully using polymer clay and top-notch gemstones. Their artsy and one-of-a-kind pieces are all about making a statement. So, if you’re looking to go bold, we recommend the ‘slinky snake’ earrings from the sleek label that stands for all things modern, minimalistic, and light.
The brand creates one-of-a-kind charms in resins, botanicals, and handcrafted nickel which lends a fresh and wholesome meaning to your jewellery laced with fossilised flowers and leaves. The label helps encourage local crafts and employ craftsmanship by urging consumers to support small scale businesses and engage in a guilt-free bling haul.
