Armed With Allure
By Farah Khan
Going through Indian heritage’s annals of exquisite jewellery design spanning five
thousand years, one comes upon this unique and alluring ornament. The arm bracelet
or bajubandh is back and has caught the fancy of brides. Worn on the upper arm,
the bajubandh traces its origins to regal Rajputana and the Mughal era. This classic
piece of jewellery exudes both the romance of Mughal India and the elegance of Rajputana.
Be it the 11th-century temple sculpture designs or the Burmese ruby-studded floral
motifs inspired by Persian architecture, and sculpted in the jadau or meenakari
techniques, or even in the traditional South Indian methods of jewellery design,
nothing can rewrite the narrative of the new-age bride more fittingly than the arm
bracelet. A fabled piece of heritage jewellery!
Daughter of silver-screen icon, Sanjay Khan, and Bollywood’s favourite jewellery designer,
Farah Khan’s label has become synonymous with setting high standards for style, quality,
detailing, design and elegance.
