Fusing together historic inspirations from the Mughal and Victorian Era, Heirlooms by Shafaq Habib redefines royalty and magnificence. Why are we saying this is because each gemstone and polki diamond is styled together like royalty! With the wedding season in full swing, the pieces that encompass necklaces, rings, bangles, tikka, matha patti and other ornaments reflect what the jewellery designer is all about – making the bride feel comfortable and beautiful where she knows her accessories are there to do all the talking. The colours vary from gold to red and keep up with the shades of a bridal dress. Shafaq Habib creates 22 karat gold and diamond pieces that use modern design aesthetics while remaining loyal to ancient Indian and Islamic jewellery forms.
