This question has perpetual existence. From stoics, philosophers, scientists to commoners, all have come face-to-face with this seemingly simple yet incredibly puzzling question. But the incommodiousness of this inquisition hasn’t discouraged the seekers—no matter the age. And the search will probably never end because this inquiry leads us to understand another critical question—where do we belong? That is, what is our personal identity and social identity?
Jewellery was worn among the higher classes as a sign of status and social recognition. In ancient Rome, only people of a certain rank were allowed to wear rings, and similar rules were there in other regions. And if there were no laws regarding the jewellery, the inherent quality of the jewellery worn by royal families distinguished them from the local public. Some popular jewellery owned by royal families includes La Peregrina Pearl of Queen Mary, Princess Diana’s Sapphire ring, Diamond Sarpech of Maharaja Duleep Singh, Patiala ruby choker of Maharani of Patiala, and many others. These became the expression of royalty.
Mohini believes in this potential of jewellery to be that voice that tells our story most authentically. That’s why we say, “Cherish the beauty within,” because we don’t believe in the defined parameters of beauty. Instead, we urge you to look within and find your personal style—whatever that is, you’ll find jewellery to express it at Mohini.
