Retail India News: Zoya Elevates Personal Style with 'A Love Affair' Series

Zoya introduced the "A Love Affair with Yourself" collection, offering rare symbols of self-love that transcend time and embody the spirit of the Zoya woman. With a focus on meaningful connections between jewellery and the wearer, Zoya's latest campaign elevates the enduring love affair a woman has with herself.

According to Amanpreet Ahluwalia, Brand Head of Zoya, each jewellery piece narrates a powerful story of awakening feminine elements, serving as a talisman of self-acceptance and a gesture of self-love. The campaign acknowledges the woman's celebration of her journey, embracing strength, individuality, and fostering a deep connection with herself.

The collection reflects the Zoya woman's infinite femininity through exquisite creations, with the highest standards of craftsmanship at the core of each piece. Notable among them is the "Aeterna" collection, featuring a pink amethyst inspired by platonic solids atop a diamond-studded ring, symbolizing an ocean of feminine energy drawing inspiration from the 'Flower of Life.'

The "Eternal Secret of Life" piece converges sacred symbols of creation, where a custom-cut pink amethyst holds the eternal bloom of the flower of life in rose gold, surrounded by clear baguette diamonds forming the ancient Vesica Piscis.

In the "Refractions of the Infinite" necklace, design and craftsmanship unite to present a golden symbol of the flower of life, intricately crafted behind a custom-cut pink amethyst in rose gold. The vesica piscis on the precipice of a fractal is adorned with brilliant cut diamonds, creating everlasting symmetry.

"My Embrace Bangle" stands as an iconic symbol of self-acceptance, celebrating the entirety of an individual. The seamless union of two precious metals translates the joy of embracing oneself just as they are.

The "Scarlet Macaw Necklace" captures the vibrancy of the scarlet macaw's plumes, featuring a turquoise stone with rows of sapphires, rubies, and diamonds in shifting hues, symbolizing the strength and brilliance akin to the Scarlet Macaw's feathers. The collection reflects Zoya's commitment to providing timeless jewellery pieces that resonate with self-expression and individuality.
