1 Three must-haves for the working woman:
Solitaires, tennis bracelets and diamond bangles. They are timeless!
2 A celebrity whose treasure trove you want to raid:
izabeth Taylor. Her jewellery is exquisite and the pieces have so much romance behind them. Absolutely breathtaking!
3 A Hollywood celebrity you would like to see in your jewels:
I feel like a child in a candy store. There are so many names I would like to mention but if I had to choose, it would be Meryl Streep or Angelina Jolie. Both these ladies are way too glamorous!
4 Jewellery on men — yes or no? Bare minimum! A wedding band is necessary. Apart from that the lesser they wear, the better! Not many men can carry off accessories.
5 Who according to you can? In Hollywood, it’s Brad Pitt. Closer home, Arjun Rampal is the only man that can.
6 The best-dressed woman according to you...
Rekha in her Kanjeevarams.
7 An Indian designer you would love to collaborate with:
My jewellery can be collaborated with any designer but I feel Sabyasachi Mukherjee or Nandita Mahtani would be apt.
8 Your favourite international jewellery brand:
Graph in London. They have some stunning pieces.
9 The movie with the best jewellery: Umrao Jaan.
10 One thing you love about being a celebrity wife:
The platform my work has got... my jewellery has got so much exposure — none of this would have happened so fast if it weren’t for my name.
