Viren Bhagat

    Fourth-generation Indian jeweler Viren Bhagat combines his country’s rich jewelry heritage with classical European jewelry design references. Bhagat’s influences range from the Mogul decorative arts and traditional Indian symbols, textiles, and temple friezes to sleek Art Deco forms. Signature Style: There is an unexpected simplicity expressed in many designs such as floral earrings made of flat petal-shaped diamonds (devoid of facets) with a bright ruby centerpiece. Even elaborate designs appear effortless as seen in a five-row choker with nearly 100 flat diamonds that hang like droplets of water.
