Cream chikankari suit, by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla; strappy heels, from Jimmy Choo; watch, from Franck Muller; ruby and polkhi necklace and earrings, diamond and ruby bangles and diamond rings, all from Mirari. All from Mira’s personal collection.
“The ensemble that my mother had crafted for my wedding was like inheriting a treasure. She had planned it 15 years earlier and had got it made piece by piece within a span of five to six years. It is a polki creation with possibly everything one can wear – a small necklace, a panchlara, two mathapattis, a tika, earrings, a pair each of bajubandhs, paijebs, kadhaaso, hathphools and toe rings and a kamarbandh. The size of the polkis is small but being a gemologist, quality is what matters to me. The ensemble has hints of green enamel and emeralds in some places with the basic form language being floral and circular discs.”
