Are you in love with the beautiful green onyx earrings above yet? I am, and I have to introduce you to my latest obsession–Taara Jewelry. Taara is an inspired, gorgeous line of jewelry out of Hong Kong by designer Megha Jain, an old friend of mine from Boston College (go Eagles!). Megha has always loved jewelry and been the type of girl who builds her outfits around one statement piece. She’s been dabbling in jewelry design since childhood, but took it took a new level last year after beginning to work with her aunt in India. Inspired by her Indian heritage, yet drawn to modern shapes and colors, she began crafting unique pieces that are forward-thinking and still reflective of her culture.
Taara Jewelry features two collections at the moment: the Mughal Collection and the Silver Collection. The Mughal Collection is influenced by its namesake, the Mughal Empire, and the contrast of bold reds and greens against golden desert sand. Megha is especially inspired by her travels to India, especially to Udaipur, the City of Lakes. Many of her pieces feature glass and mirror work that is literally reflective of the blue lakes and white buildings in the city. The end result of her handmade work and inspiration? Amazing, unique pieces that are opulent and elegant.
Both collections feature earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and cocktail rings, all priced around $40-$100+. Even if you’re not in Hong Kong, Megha ships pieces directly to clients around the world.
