Here at ISHARYA, we try to blend Western and Indian cultures into unique eye-catching designs. We’re constantly looking for new ideas that spark our imagination and deliver a creative edge that we can infuse in our jewelry. This time we explored modern art and gorgeous Mughal structures that have dotted the landscapes of India for eons.
Arguably, the biggest art movement of the 20th century was cubism, where artists like Pablo Picaso and Georges Braque sought to flatten their perception of the world and recreate something new. What was so bizarre yet alluring is that up until that time, people saw their world as is, and couldn’t imagine it any other way. It took a imagination and courage that only true artists like Picasso and Braque possess to shatter what we once knew. It’s no wonder that paintings such as Les Demoiselles d’Avignon were so radical at the time. Lines were disjointed, figures were distorted and overtime gave rise to circular, outlandish and fascinating representations of reality. Just like these paintings, ISHARYA designers were inspired to create unique shapes and ridged angels, that are reflected in our new collection.

Akbar the Great, Shah Jahan and all the other emperors had one main thing in common, their absolute resolve to be surrounded by beautiful architecture and art. They pushed the boundaries of perception in India by bringing their Persian flair to everything. Mehrangarh Fort in Jaipur has that Mughal signature style with quaint, colourful stain glass doors and windows. Structures had to be aesthetically pleasing to the eyes and of the highest design quality. The most famous testament to this type of thinking (and to love) is of course the Taj Mahal. We pay homage to those minarets and the decadence of that period, by recreating their shape and highlighting vibrant gemstones.
