BEGALOUROU: There is a commotion in JP Nagar one afternoon of the week that Bollywood actress Karisma Kapoor is expected in the city. It’s here to start De Beers Forevermark Boutique’s second store in Bangalore. Dressed in a black dress with shoulders, Kapoor is puzzled by the phenomena. Once things are settled, Kapoor takes a tour of the store, looking at some diamonds through a jewelry magnifying glass. At the same time she remembers her first purchase of the gemstone.
“Like any girl, diamonds are my best friends. “The little solitaire I bought for the first time with my own money still makes me so proud,” says Kapoor.
The exclusive boutique store in South Bangalore is partnered with Abaran Timeless Jewelery and includes a rare collection of diamonds in a traditional and modern setting. At the presentation, the actor also received a collection of diamonds to choose from for different occasions, as part of a fun and interactive activity.
Choose a diamond necklace that is suitable for a brunch or a film awards ceremony. When asked to choose something for festive occasions, she chose to wear “diamond kangans” which is part of a “cycle of trust” collection, denoting Indian traditions and cultures.
Speaking to CE, Kapoor says diamonds are more like an identity for women than just a fashion statement. “Diamonds are like a piece of heirloom, something that can be passed on to future generations,” says the actor, who is known for films such as Dil To Pagal Hai and Coolie No. 1.
Regarding Bengaluru, Kapoor says, “It is always a pleasure to be in this green city in the midst of great weather. “I’m a big fan of the South Indian thali that I definitely do not want to miss when I’m here.” Sharing her New Year’s resolution for 2022, Kapoor says: “More than a simple solution, my wish is to have a more positive and optimistic year ahead of us, especially since we have been trying for the last two years.”
