The striking, Bollywood, beauty, Yami Gautam closed the show wearing a stunning Maatha Paati, vertical earrings, nose ring and a gorgeous cuff that had all the dramatic touches of creativity by Pallavi. Taking a bow at the end of the successful show to thunderous applause were the very delighted Pallavi Foley and Gaurav Singh Kushwaha, CEO BlueStone.com.

The name Pallavi Foley, is well known in the Indian and international jewellery business. A graduate from the accessory department of NIFT in 2000, Pallavi created exquisite pieces for Tanishq for a decade. Rio Tinto called her “India’s Hottest Young Designer”, while the World Gold Council termed her as “The Elsa Peretti of India”. Pallavi creates visions of beauty in 18 carat gold at her studio in Bangalore and retails through her boutiques.
The 50-piece collection was an ode to Bangalore where Pallavi started her career as well as, is the birth city of BlueStone.com. The Avant Garde line called “The Fame of the Forest” revolved around nature’s elements as they took centre stage. With the flower as the focal point for most of the pieces, rain, fire and other flora also inspired Pallavi.
Her jewellery was a study in precious stones and metals created in the most amazing forms. It was jewellery that moved away from the mundane and went onto a higher level of beauty and style.
There were gorgeous earrings, brooches and necklaces, created in amazing designs that will be coveted by every woman who wants to make an impact on the fashion scene.
Keeping the theme in mind, Pallavi unveiled a mind-blowing line of totally unique pieces. The leaf and buds brooch beautifully represented the title of the collection; while the creatively experimental horizontal ear sticks will surely start a quirky trend to decorate the ear lobes. The two versions of the earpieces with various leaf designs will be real conversation starters.
The show opened with very sexy chains on a single leg sporting the petals that moved from thigh to ankle and an ear cuff that rose from the lobes. Soon it was dangling petals on long chains, which turned into earrings, while a horizontal pendant hung daringly on a neck chain. There was a quirky long necktie neck piece, giant chandbalis with petals, vertical pronged bangles, draped shoulder necklace nose ring, tasselled neck-cum-bosom ornament and the harness necklace that were all amazing creations.
Going even more innovative and daring in her designing, Pallavi had a gold cummerbund-cum- corset delicately embellished with petals that could be a true head turner.
When it came to the necklaces, the two ‘Flame of the Forest’ offerings showcased creativity of the highest order. The double-looped, rigid, option with graceful petals sat on the neck in grand style. The second, more flexible display, featured gold leaves and buds rendered in fresh water Baroque pearls.
But it was for the magnificent “Wind Blown Necklace” that Pallavi allowed her creativity to climb imaginative extremes as her designing skills pushed the limits of the metal. She moulded, twisted and twirled the gold into swirls, which ended in multiple, fragile, large/small petals and leaves that almost looked as though they would just fly away in gusts of wind. The inspiration was the rain and the wind swept flowers that Pallavi captured dramatically in metal.
When it comes to jewellery, which can cause a major stir at any occasion, the Pallavi Foley collection “The Flame of the Forest” presented by BlueStone.com will be the first choice of the fashionistas globally who want jewellery, which is created with an innovative slant.
