Fashion designer Shaheen Abbas' interest in the art of fine jewellery stemmed while growing up. She is the founder of brands Shaheen Abbas Fine Jewellery and Flowerchild.
Shaheen Abbas often recalled spending her time in front of the mirror, trying on her mother's jewellery, fashioning her own fairy tales. In this photo, she dons a layer necklace with a black chic top and printed skirt.
The intricacy of the workmanship, the timelessness of her family heirloom pieces and the techniques used to craft these pieces got her interest in fine jewellery. In this photo, she took a minimal route with teaming her outfit with a pair of statement earrings and neckpiece with bangles in one hand.
She captions this photo, "Good things happen when your heart is ready to carry it." Here she has paired her layered necklace with a formal bodycon dress.
In this photo, her caption reads, "The universe only pretends to be made of matter.. it is secretly made of LOVE." Taking insiration from her look, you add an edge to your casual look with a heart-shaped earring.
A statement bracelet works wonders with a rugged casual outfit and Shaheen has done just that. With a black crop top and blue denims, she throws on the jacket and adds to the look.
Shaheen Abbas loves to experiment with colour, cut and casting. Her aim is to use her jewellery to make women feel glamorous and special.
Shaheen Abbas started her first venture in the early 2000s, working with silver jewellery when it was still a nascent concept in India. This led to the launch of Shaheen Abbas Fine Jewellery
Shaheen Abbas' second venture is Flowerchild. Flowerchild is for people who don't want to pick between wearing flowers in her hair or jewels around her neck when they would rather have it all. Shaheen Abbas launched her accessory label Flowerchild with her collection called 'Oro Crudo' which is an ode to the very woman it has been created for.
Abbas says in the caption of this picture that her personalised initial medallion choker is her "go to piece of glam" for gifting.
A pair of gold hoop earrings work well with summer dresses and the loud colours of her dress and glares are an add on.
In an interview, Shaheen Abbas stated that solitaires are great for reception and cocktail evenings whereas something more intricate like Jadau jewellery goes well with the actual ceremony
Tone down on the details of your outfit and let the jewellery do the talking! Here, Abbas rocks a pair of chandbaali earrings with a simple while traditional outfit, replete with a stack of gold bangles and a statement ring.
Taking the minimal route, Abbas teams a pair of statement earrings and skips wearing a necklace with a gold outfit.
For a balanced look, wearing a statement ring and toning down other ornaments is enough, just like Abbas' look in this picture.
Jewellery excites every woman. Style with ethnic outfits, casuals or formal wear, jewellery always adds a edge to it. Fashion designer Shaheen Abbas, born on March 11, 1977, is a prominent fashion jewellery designer in Mumbai. Growing up in a jewellery-loving family, her interest in the art of fine jewellery stemmed from an early age. Shaheen Abbas is the founder of Shaheen Abbas Fine Jewellery and Flowerchild.
