Jewelry is a crucial part of any fashion show: whether a designer chooses to include baubles or not is a huge statement. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but the jewelry choices on the runway are as varied as the designs on display: we saw Jeremy Scott collaborate with Alexis Bittar on lucite pieces for the season for instance. Well, Bibhu Mohapatra went for full-on glamour for Fall 2016—no surprise as the brand’s pieces are spotted on the red carpet at least monthly. The ears, wrists, and necks of the models shimmered and sparkled with pieces from Forevermark:

Forevermark jewelers from Mohapatra’s native India created the stunning diamond designs. The collection was inspired by the last Chinese empress, “Dragon Lady” Cixi. That influence rendered itself in floral patterns set against rich autumnal hues, dragonfly embroidery, and more.

“I chose Forevermark to accessorize the models in my Fall 2016 Runway show at NYFW because of the inherent beauty and rarity of Forevermark diamonds,” says Mohapatra. He continues, “We had several dozen gorgeous diamond pieces sent to the US from Forevermark India. The ornate style of the jewelry fit perfectly with the theme of my collection, which is inspired by the legendary Chinese ‘Dragon Lady’ Empress Cixi. Also, Forevermark diamonds are responsibly sourced, meaning they give back to the communities where they come from, which is incredibly important to me. In fact, I have designed a collection exclusively with Forevermark, set to launch in India later this year.”
