100 Year Old Legacy Ganjam Jewellery Unveils Stunning ‘SAKURA’ Collection
Ganjam, the luxury jewellery brand, today launched a stunning new collection, ‘Sakura’, inspired by the fragility and grace of the Japanese cherry blossom.
The collection captures the ethereal beauty of the Sakura bloom through its journey of transformation from a newborn leaf to a full blossom, entirely in its jewelled glory. A major feature of the Sakura flower is its delicate nature, calmness, innocence and fragility. This handcrafted collection is a timeless metaphor for human existence, embodying a journey of transformation, growth and renewal, all brought to life through exquisite Ganjam ‘F’ coloured diamonds, pastel shades of pink and yellow sapphires, rubellites and diamond briolettes set in 18kt pink, white and yellow gold. It has been stylized into unique, Contemporary Classic designs. The collection showcases depth and ranges from suites of jewellery to individual pieces.
Speaking on the occasion, Umesh Ganjam, Joint MD, Ganjam, said, “Ganjam has always been acutely sensitive to changing lifestyle trends in the market place. The launch of this collection will allow aficionados to experience the sheer intricacies of design and meticulous craftsmanship that is synonymous with our celebrated collections. Our jewellery is designed for the contemporary woman who appreciates fine craftsmanship and attention to detail. In 2002, Ganjam had the honour of being the only Indian jewellery brand to be one of the finalists at the Gold Virtuosi’ 2, jewellery design awards that are recognised as the international ‘Oscars’ for gold jewellery design and craftsmanship. It showcased the delicacy of a flower as well as nature’s complexity in designing something so simple. The latest offering from Ganjam, Sakura, represents nature’s unique play in creating the cherry blossom. The crafting process has been rewarding as it has taken us through a most intricate journey wherein every piece of this collection is crafted and hand assembled to exacting standards comparable to the best in the world.”
Ganjam’s association with Japan began in 2000 when the brand collaborated with Japanese artist Kazuo Ogawa. In 2002 Ganjam was the only Indian jeweller invited to participate in Japan’s celebration of 50 years of Indo-Japanese collaboration. In 2005, Ganjam was launched in Tokyo through an event called “Wings of Love.”
Conceptualized and developed by Priya Rathee, Senior Designer from the House of Ganjam, the collection has been methodically handcrafted by highly skilled craftsmen.Sakura, will be on display from October 6, 2017 at the Bangalore Flagship store at Vittal Mallya Road.
