Poetic Flowers by Neha Dani
11th November 2021
After graduating from GIA, Neha Dani gained recognition for her craftsmanship and distinctive creativity through art fairs and exhibitions such as PAD. Thanks to her gem passion and love for beauty, the talented Indian jeweller celebrates Flora with a range of precious stones and complex jewellery techniques.
Neha Dani jewellery is a balance of delicate creativity and unconventional materials. Femininity, nature and floating flowers are keys to her poetic designs. The fragility of her unique creations is translated in the extremely detailed elements: paved settings, tiny curves and lace mounting; all achieved through wax carving, an old technique that requires a specific expertise.

I admire her gift for creating such movement in her jewels, like the wind blowing in the leaves and the waves slowly moving the anemones tentacles. Flower is her expertise, each petal has its own flow, embracing the fingers, arms or neck of the wearer. It is also an art to create this gradient hues effect with gemstones: shades of yellow diamonds or a nuance of blue sapphires. It is just a perfect representation of nature with its ephemerality, curious shapes and glowing colors.

On the other hand, her choice of materials contrasts with her designs. The use of colorful rhodium and titanium as mounting, as well as embellishments, brings modernity to her jewels. This strong material creates structure, light and power which balances with the soft and delicate designs.
Furthermore, Neha Dani creates very intriguing pieces integrating moonstones. The set is a refined balance of sparkling diamonds and translucent stones referring to the glacier inspiration. The iridescence and the geometrical structure of the pieces captivate the eye and send us in the icy and peaceful mountains. I find the moonstone to bring a very soothing effect to these strong creations.

The corals and sea anemones are also very exploited in her collections. Their mysterious tentacles are sometimes blue, green or purple, paved with diamonds, sapphires or tsavorites. The use of pearls emphasizes the sea world spirit of Neha Dani and gives additional luster to the creation. These mesmerizing pieces are equal to art works, some even looks like pointillism gemstone paintings.
