Called Libera, the collection uses a diversity of jewels to communicate excellent design
October 6, 2021: Indian jewellery brand Zoya has introduced Libera, a stunning new collection that exhibits a high level of intricacy. The visual vocabulary of this timeless collection seeks cues in the artistic joie de vivre of the late 1800s, presenting experimental silhouettes with timeless craft, that are as original as they are diverse. This modern collection makes a statement with art nouveau trope and stylistic detailing, presenting rare design that is exquisitely fluid and feminine.
Zoya has always interpreted its inspiration in unusual ways. Libera is no exception. The collection connects with the inner world of its muse, as she transcends the limitations of external validation, reconnects with her own femininity, and embraces the woman she truly is. Stepping away from the frivolity of trends, her fable is skilfully immortalised in a soothing pastel palette of the finest diamonds, mother of pearl, opal, champagne diamonds, complimented with highlights of cabochon rubies and emeralds.
“Over the last year, we have noticed women becoming more conscious and meaningful in the way they are living life and making choices,” says Ajoy Chawla, CEO of Titan’s Jewellery Division. “We thought, Libera was a befitting festive collection, being as significant in meaning as it is aesthetically appealing. It is metaphorically based on a time that marks the genesis of the celebration of femininity in a modern context. With a distinct whiplash line, the collection reverberates with artistic expression featuring feminine silhouettes that are relevant to the Zoya woman.”
Libera’s ‘Unchained Elegance’ showcases an emerald stone surrounded by rose cut and brilliant round diamonds. Flawless, eternal and with just a fission of mystery, this statement necklace is an elegant nod to a woman who is happy to be herself. Another unique piece mirrors the movements of a dancer unfurling the drapes of her dress, as though emerging from a cocoon. Intricate workmanship shows a butterfly pendant that holds an oval ruby cabochon in a frame enhanced with luminous mother of pearl and dangling chains. It is aptly titled ‘On Wings of Beauty’. Mirroring the secret chambers of an art nouveau theatre, ‘A Flow of Light’ is a pair of chandelier earrings with surreal and detailed accents that lend grandeur to the milieu. A mother-of-pearl of spectacular rarity is embraced by diamonds and ebbs down to a drop-shaped emerald suspended as if in space flowing into rivers of shimmering rose-cut diamonds.
Myriad cuts display the breadth of Zoya’s virtuosity from carved stones and cabochons to faceted stones. Cabochon pink tourmalines, morganites, opals, tanzanites, rock crystals and emeralds combine with black, champagne diamonds and pearls to create an exuberant palette guaranteed to set your imagination free.
“Zoya’s creations are designed with a goal to elevate the ordinary to an unforgettable, artistic statement with each new collection. With Libera, masterful handcrafting combines with cutting edge technical innovation to deliver an exaggerated and flamboyant construct that bring alive the sensuality, art, dances and couture of the era, in this rare and artistic line-up,” says Revathi Kant, Titan’s Chief Design Officer.
