Famous Mumbai based jewellery designer Farah Khan creates some of the most spectacular designs! Apart from Bollywood celebrities like Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Kareena Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan that have donned Farah’s jewellery, Hollywood celebrities like Beyonce and Serena Williams are also counted in her international clientele.
Farah says that she designs pieces that are opulent, glamorous, stylish and appealing. She says that apart from being a gemologist and a jeweler she also considers herself an artist who strives to create masterpieces and tell a story through each of her designs. She says that all of her designs are reflected through her thriving over- imagination that spurs her creativity in the right direction and allows her to create unique pieces.
She strives to narrate her stories of her inspiration through her craftsmanship that is evident in her stunning designs. Through her designs she intends to celebrate the modern day woman who is strong minded and graceful. She wishes to emphasise the beauty of a woman from within and the way she carries herself.
Farah is increasingly comfortable in her creative place and says that her design sensibilities come from her creative background and her magical perspective of the world. She admits that she has always been attracted to and captivated by beauty and this inspires her to create three dimensional pieces that are intended to outlive the wearer and be passed down and for through generations making her designs precious.
The designer has recently collaborated with Jewellery brand Tanishq to feature a collection that has been influenced by Persian elegance. The collection boasts of intricate floral work and is a fusion of contemporary and classic design. She wanted to collaborate her collection with Tanishq to showcase her artistry with a royal and feminine appeal.
Farah drew inspiration from the Mughal and Rajput architecture and art that is an extraction from the Persia. She also includes motifs from this period based on the pottery archicture and art during that time.
Despite her designs usually being contemporary and art deco her signature style draws influence from the Rajput and Mughal period but she also makes use of tigers, insects, snakes and Egyptian motifs. Her favourite era of design is the 1800s and 1900s where even global design houses like Van Cleef and Cartier made exquisite jewellery for the Maharajas of Patiala and Baroda.
