A jewellery collection - “Carved Incarnations” by Apala (which means most beautiful in Sanskrit) created by Sumit Sawhney depicted the blend of divinity with art, as it showcased on the ramp at the India International Jewellery Week 2013.

The offerings of neckpieces, earrings, bracelets, cuffs, statement rings, arm bands, anklets and head ornaments carry a wide appeal to all suit all requirements for women’s jewellery. The designer incorporates carvings of gods and goddesses and elements of nature, using combinations of precious and semi-precious stones with 22 K gold layering and hand crafted silver, reviving the age old methods of carved gemstones, while also applying a fusion of kundan technique with antique Tribal Indian silver styles, spiritual touches of motifs, jaalis and textures to lend a contemporary look.

The entire collection is segmented into three sub-parts. One of the three is the Cosmic Energy – An Attraction collection in which regal long necklaces with pendants, a turquoise crescent moon necklace with the pink tourmalines and kundan, a paisley enamelled pendant, chandbalis and hair ornaments stood out. The second part entitled Deities – An Offering, was dedicated to the gods descending and being immortalised in gold and precious stones. The onyx pendant with gold, the Bodhi Tree Necklace with turquoise and tourmalines, uncut gems grouped roughly for necklaces, unusual heavy long haath phools. the Balaji Shrine Pendant in black onyx against a gold background of the Shri Yantra reminded one of the many divine interventions in life.
The third segment was entitled Enlightenment – The Culmination paying tribute to heavens. There was a Cosmic Glory Necklace made of kundan drops and strands of hand knotted corals, which was the main attraction, along with the hasli with carved dual deities and the armlet-cum-bangle combo gave a new twist to traditional jewellery. Necklace tassels at the back were ended with ornate pendants and majestic Raani Haars ending at waistlines. A four-pendent long necklace, multiple cuffs and bangles, was the finale of the show.
