10 Gorgeous Pieces From Mumbai’s Signature Trade Show

Now in its seventh year, the show shines a spotlight on Indian artistry

Greetings from Mumbai! I’m here in India attending the Signature jewelry trade show, staged biannually by Indias Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC). 

I’ll give you a wrap-up of the show, which ends Monday at the Bombay Exhibition Center, in my Retail Details blog this Thursday. But in the meantime, I wanted to share some of the beautiful pieces I’ve encountered while walking the aisles.

Rule number one in Indian jewelry design: More is always more.
