Malini Agarwalla, Designer and owner, Malaga, shares some of her unique and exquisite creations

Jewellery designed by Malaga is poetry and art combined with functionality resulting in a collection of handbags, necklaces, bracelets and watches.

Turquoise necklace

In this vibrant necklace, turquoise and polki jadau tukdis have been strung together with flat turquoise stones, rubies and pearls, resulting in a piece that can be worn as easily with western outfits as well as with a traditional saree or lehenga.

Navratan pendant

This Navratan pendant has been created using rubies, emeralds, topaz and sapphire to create an absolute head-turning piece of jewellery.

Pearl and navratan

This Navratan tukdi has been strung on to a broad pearl braid to make a beautiful necklace that can be worn close to the neck like a choker. Again, this is a very versatile piece, which can be worn with traditional and western outfits with ease.

Convertible bracelet

This gold bracelet with rubies, polkis and south sea pearls can be also worn as a choker due to its extension chains. Worn either way, it is a beautiful piece of jewellery.

Jewelled handbag

This bespoke handbag is made of pure hand-carved silver, which has been plated with gold. Further, it has been embellished with a pure gold Navratan tukdi. The bag is cleverly made wherein the tukdi can be detached and used as a pendant.
