80 years of design journey

November 14

Design Guru Lou Danziger once said, “Design is intelligence made visible”. A look at Kirtilals’ 80 years long design journey is testimony to this. For 80 years the Kirtilals design lab has been the gold mine of exquisite jewellery design, be it classics or contemporary, traditional or functional, intricate or minimalistic concepts. With over 5 lakh designs in its repository, this design journey is fascinating to say the least.

An 80 year old brand can be trusted to have an expert eye and proficient hand for traditional motifs and styles. Kirtilals is known across South India for its authentic design and crafting of temple jewellery, a must have in your vintage collection. Popular to this day, temple jewellery continues to occupy a place of pride in every Kirtilals store. But imagination is a wild bird and the scope for design is truly infinite when you dare to imagine the impossible. Kirtilals has pushed possibilities in design with some rather unique pieces. And there is a method to the madness! Every design originates from an inspiration or idea. It could be elements from nature or things from everyday life that seed a design concept in the mind of the visualizer.

Alternative beginning

1939- A year of great upheaval across the world. This was the year that shaped the future of the world in many ways. History remembers this year for the beginning of World War 2, the years that followed created new nations, political orders and ways of life. In this remarkable year, a jeweler in South India set a stone in gold and planted the seeds of a tree that was destined to blossom for the next 8 decades, bearing is executed with pristine perfection. With the advent of modern technology, craftsmanship acquired a new meaning, we were quick to learn and build on this resource, thus improving precision while maintaining the eye for aesthetics of the traditional karigar. While we value tradition and believe that classics never go out of fashion, we have the customer’s pulse. After all, 80 years of making jewelry means adorning several generations. Contemporary designs and pieces catering to modern tastes take place of pride in our catalogue and store shelves, side by side timeless traditional masterpieces.

Ah, Christmas!

The time of decadent meals enjoyed with loved ones, of cozying up in warmth and with familiar movies, and of practising generosity towards our friends & family and the larger society. As Francis of Assisi once said, ‘For it is in giving that we receive’.

What is it about gifting that makes us glow from within, even while being the giver? The joy of generosity isn’t restricted to the big ticket items. Even sharing one’s meal or being able to monetarily help somebody out allows us to experience a sense of warmth that is completely unparalleled. It may even be correct that the man who hoards all his wealth is nowhere as rich as the man who gives it away.

For Christmas, we at Kirtilals put our heads together to create a marvelous range of jewellery which make for the perfect gifts for the women in your life.

Take our tiny red dancer, for instance. She rejoices in the act of giving, flitting and floating across the planet spreading Christmas joy and cheer all over. There’s no obstacle big enough to keep our little red dancer from generously spreading the Christmas sparkle.

We’ve made a pair of shiny and joyous Christmas bell earrings which truly capture this radiant time of the year! The earrings shine bright with the joy of winter, they glow luminous with the knowledge that they will be gifted to worthy women; women who make the hazy days of winter brighter by simply being themselves.

A tall and proud Christmas tree feels bare without its baubles. Keeping the symbiotic relationship between a tree and its decorations in mind, we’ve designed a special pair of circular earrings which take any outfit from nice to straight up glamourous.

This Christmas, take part in the joy of giving with Kirtilals. Merry Christmas, from our family to yours.
