Well hello Mr. B! I have to say my job has its perks (and then some days I have to wake up bright and early on a Friday morning to hang out with Amitabh Bachchan at the biggest jewellery store I have ever seen… ya all perks!) Even though it was a super hot day in the sweltering Mumbai sun the anticipation for Big B.’s arrival in front of a giant royal red curtain was palatable. (Even the emcee announced how this was going to be the hottest launch ever, pun intended several times, lol!) Once he arrived all smiles and a ribbon cutting later we wound up in a press conference room full of laughter (more pix here!) courtesy the Big B.’s signature wit (and some oddly aggressive reporters – actually that’s probably not so odd.) I even managed to take a tour of the store and wanted one of everything on display. Very cool that they have a kids playroom and a men’s lounge with the luxury of so much space! I may have to revisit with the fiancee and convince him to buy me something pretty for the big day! You know what I really want? One of those Sex In The City, Carrie Bradshaw-ish name necklaces with “MissMalini” on a silver chain, maybe Tanishq can make me one? :) xoxo
For now enjoy our video of the banter with Mr. Bachchan at the launch of the largest Tanishq Store in Mumbai, I’m talking 25,000 sq ft of every girls dreamy bling #awesome.
Stocked with exquisite jewellery designs and collections, this store has different sections for gold, platinum and diamond jewellery with prices ranging from 2,000rs to 35 lacs. The store offers a secluded room within the store for ‘Hi-Value Diamond’ shoppers to pick their choice in complete oblivion from the crowded sections and long lines.
The store hosts iconic collections such as Glam Gold, Taj collection, Conversations, Diamonds of Class, Colors of Royalty and many more that have established the brand’s expertise in intricate designs. The boutique also provides skilled in-store jewellery consultants with thorough knowledge of jewels and gems. Besides offering the complete range of distinct collections, the store extends Tanishq’s widely acclaimed Certification of Authenticity, certifying the purity of Gold and the color, clarity and caratage of each diamond.
Celebrating the opening of the showroom, Tanishq held a fashion show (which you’ll read all about on my blog too soon!) choreographed by Achla Sachdev
Tanishq also announced their inaugural offer, commemorating the auspicious occasion of Akshay Tritiya. The offer allows customers to avail upto 15% discount on diamond jewellery and upto 25% discount on the making charges of gold jewellery. This special offer starts from 30th April to 8th May 2011.
