Gemstones have an inexplicable Fire
Famed jewelry Designer Maheep Kapoor on Gems and Jewelry
Exclusive to Gemstoneuniverse.com
Maheep Kapoor is a name synonymous with couture jewelry. She is a name, well established and admired for creating beautiful pieces, especially those using precious gemstones.
Speaking Exclusively to Gemstoneuniverse, she reminisced the beginnings of her journey with precious gemstones and jewelry – “I love jewelry and especially one with gemstones. It all started with designing a few pieces for myself, which people around me and my friends admired greatly. It later got translated into orders for designs from friends and before long without my even realising it; it became a full–fledged career.
As with all else, Maheep says that she has evolved over time and so have her preferences. She now works only with precious stones – Rubies, diamonds, emeralds, sapphires etc. “I concentrate only on creating heirloom pieces – classic, solid pieces, something that has value which can be handed down generations. I did use a lot of semi-precious gems but that was years ago. As I understand gemstones, the value and the sensible choice lie in precious stones only.”
She has designed a few talismans on personal request of close friends. “Gemstones are extremely powerful. I believe that they have a lot of fire within them and can do a lot of good for individuals. They have a life of their own which can pass on amazing energy to people wearing them. Personally, I am partial to emeralds, not only for the lovely green colour but for the vibrant energy they possess!”
Maheep retails at Notandas Jewellers in Mumbai. She has designed for celebrities, high profile clientele and for Bollywood projects like Om Shanti Om and Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna as well!
Maheep has a show slated for October 8th at Turner Road in Mumbai. We wish her the very best.
