In the jewellery landscape, shapes are everything and spirals, in particular, are a timeless motif. Symbolic of growth, evolution and harmony, spirals make for striking compositions and designs. Keeping that in mind, Andal Gems & Jewels launched the Spiral Collection with pieces that boast geometric and artistic elegance.

We spoke to founder and creative director, Esshitha Guna who helmed this collection about how her background in gemology inspired its playful inclusion of colour.

Tell us about the inspiration behind the collection?

The collection was inspired by the concept of the ever-evolving nature of all living beings. Each journey is filled with ups, downs, magic, surprise and lots of love! Our spin on it was to add colour with high-quality gemstones like ruby, emeralds and sapphires that represent one’s ‘personalpick’ element as well.

What pieces can we look forward to in this collection and what are some must-haves that you recommend?

The spiral bracelet is a must-have! They come in three tones — yellow, white and rose gold. We have stunning spiral pendants that add charm to a dressy brunch or as a sundowner wear.

What are some of the jewellery trends that you predict for this year?

I think Toi Et Moi is one which also found its way into Aditi and Siddharth‘s engagement rings. I also feel more gemstone, colour stone jewellery and design-driven pieces with a story will trend this year.

You were the creator of Aditi Rao Hydari and Siddharth’s engagement ring, how was the experience?

It was a beautiful experience! Aditi and Siddharth are so wonderful and kind. Both their engagement rings were designed with meaning and character that resonates with their love story. It was a co-creative process with the couple, which included specific stone sourcing, design discussions and the little details that led to the final pieces — the two very special rings.

Lastly, have you started working on your new collection yet?

Yes! We have and we’re excited for everyone to see the next collection. We’ll keep the details a secret until the launch!

INR 2,30,000 onwards. Available online.
