Rendezvous with Zoya

Redefining luxury jewellery for the modern era


May 5, 2024 (IANSlife)  An evening at The Chambers at Taj Mahal, New Delhi epitomised luxury and refinement, offering an immersion into the beauty and artistry of Zoya's collections from the House of Tata. Celebrating the atelier’s storied legacy while raising a toast to its eternal muse, the Zoya Woman, the vibrant gala was hosted by Amanpreet Ahluwalia, Business Head of Zoya, with a showcase of its most iconic collections. Celebrated designer Gauri Khan, a long-standing friend of the House, joined the brand in embracing the spirit of the celebration.

"Zoya stands unwaveringly proud of its Indian roots and cultural legacy," stated Amanpreet Ahluwalia. "Each Zoya creation seamlessly intertwines the richness of traditional Indian craftsmanship with a contemporary perspective and serves as a resplendent reminder to women everywhere that their true beauty lies in embracing their uniqueness.” For this special evening, the brand selected four exquisite collections of wearable art rich with meaning. Each rare creation, embodied the essence of the Zoya woman, embracing her true self with grace and confidence.

Drawing metaphoric inspiration from the resilience of rainforests, honouring the inner strength of the Zoya woman, with vibrant spirit, inspired by the rich heritage of the eternal city, Zoya’s Benaras captured her fascination for the city's cultural splendour. Incorporating rare materials and ancient techniques, such as engraving and intricate enamelling, Benaras paid homage to the city's iconic rituals and landmarks, encapsulating their mystical allure in every piece. With a poetic narrative and exceptional gemstones, Zoya’s Beyond - A Boundless Journey, inspired by the majestic Indus river symbolised the feminine spirit as a force of nature, capturing the myriad stages of a woman's existence.

The high jewellery collection, Her Becoming created a revolutionary look in white diamonds inspired by ancient Ikat patterns. Featuring unusual stone cuts like Cadillacs, trapezoids and custom-cut baguettes the collection celebrated a woman's journey to self-realisation, reimagining traditional silhouettes with contemporary flair while embodying the essence of modern femininity.

“I am delighted to join Zoya in celebrating its iconic collections that narrate stories from India to the world. The atelier continues to redefine luxury jewellery for the modern era with its collections,” said Gauri Khan. “Whether it's a statement necklace or a delicate bracelet, every piece speaks volumes about the woman who wears it - confident, fearless, and unapologetically herself.”

Remarking on the successfully concluded Rendezvous at The Chambers, Satyajeet Krishnan, Area Director - Operations, and General Manager – Taj Mahal, New Delhi, said. “We extend our heartiest compliments for Zoya's design homage to heritage and tribute towards empowering women. It has been an honour to be a part of this momentous occasion that highlighted the signature finesse of our iconic hotel and the warmth of Tajness.
