Celebration of rich design.

Nothing gives our inner magpie more joy than stumbling across a new jewellery brand to fall in love with.

Taking inspiration from the colours and rhythm of India, Shivani Pathak, the founder and creative director of Taal Noir, offers a modern twist on adornment.

“I’m inspired by India’s rich design tradition, something I consider to be one of India’s greatest treasures.  I love the the multi-layered essence of Indian design — its craftsmanship, symbolism, and often times multi-cultural identity – a legacy of the country’s past as a cultural crossroads and centre of trade,” she explains on the brands website.

She made her debut at Paris Fashion Week last year with her first collection Mughal Sonata that paid tribute to the Mughal era when Hindu, Islamic and Western design influences came together in a vibrant blend of creativity. Note the rich blues and greens in the collection inspired by peacock plumes.

“My aim with Taal Noir is to celebrate India in the world, and the world in India – through design-led accessories created for the culturally curious woman,” she adds.

All made in Jaipur, her designs stand out for the use of bolds colours, hand-painted enamel and pear-cut topaz. Those who are colour shy can instead look to the geometric and layered shapes that come in a metal finish.

You can shop the pieces from the London-based accessories brand on taalnoir.com.
