Founder and Artistic Director of Vihari Jewels, Vihari Poddar, hosted a series of intimate luncheons and dinners in early February to present a new collection, The Iridescent Dragonfly, as well as her 2021 Exclusive High Jewellery range.
Held at Tong Le Private Dining at OUE Tower, the private jeweller and her mother, Manisha Sheth, introduced VIPs, jewellery aficionados and society friends to the exquisite, newly launched baubles that ranged from red-carpet-worthy fancy coloured diamond pieces and top-grade precious gems, to versatile yet contemporary designs with white diamonds for everyday wear.
Ladies fawned over the captivating limited-edition The Iridescent Dragonfly suite featuring green, yellow, pink, orange and white diamonds, which took six months to create due to the challenge of procuring the various coloured diamonds for all four pieces. Just before dessert, Vihari presented several trays of colourful “bonbons” in the form of loose coloured stones that could be set into bespoke pieces. Other highlights included the incredible no-oil Colombian emerald ring that cost a cool $3 million and a spectacular $10 million pigeon’s blood ruby ring.
