For a 148-year-old Rooted in classicism but theatrical in appeal, the jewellery shines forth with the best of Hyderabad, whether in the elegant renditions of pearls or in the craftsmanship of vintage designs. Another hallmark of their brand of luxury is that none of their pieces are replicated; the design begins with the gem and its rarity and so offering two of a kind is just as rare as their collection, they claim.
