    My two favorite things in life— besides my family and Aniika— are Bollywood and Indian design. We all love established Indian designers. Who doesn’t want to wear or carry a creation from Ritu Kumar or Manish Malhotra? Yet, I strongly think a new generation of creative, emerging Indian designers deserve your attention, too.

    So, I’d like to turn your attention to a new generation of immensely talent designers from India by pairing ten of my favorite, gorgeous Indian actresses with a piece of stunning jewelry from a new Indian designer! I think if these stars saw the work of these talented designers, they’d love each piece as much as I do. Of course, my picks are some of my personal favorites, too, and I’d love to hear what you think of each pick, so please leave your opinion in the comments.

    1. Nandita Das.

    Green Tourmaline and German Silver Necklace

    This handcrafted necklace of bright green tourmaline and silver would look beautiful on Nandita. Green is a color that exudes harmony, health, and nature, perfect for such a gifted, philanthropic actress.

    Known for her traditional style, I think this necklace— gold-plated, with faux-pearls, and slightly asymmetrical— would be a subtle twist on her enduring style and a perfect addition to her jewelry box.

    5. Chitrangada Singh.

    Tribal Art Husli Necklace

    Chitrangada’s said she loves fashion from the 70’s, and I think this thicker necklace of thin, hand-wrapped chains would be a fun, updated twist. It goes without saying it would look gorgeous on her…!
