Perfume bottle necklaces have been a part of a fashion history for a along time now. Well, didn’t the fashionistas of yore carry their favorite fragrance wrapped around their necks most of the times. Yes, small intricately decorated flasks have been sported by main chains to let the pretty ladies take a dab of their perfume whenever and wherever they liked. This old tradition is not re-entering the market courtesy designer Chhaya Kapadia under the brand Maya Jewels.
We are told that Chhaya built her company based on three principles – intricate designs, use of forgotten traditions of art and skilled craftsmanship. Her creations are surrounded by bright colors and rather elaborate designs thanks to the strong impression her upbringing in Mumbai, India made on her.
Magazines like Town & Country, W magazine and Elle have celebrated Chhaya’s collections. On asking the designer on adding the perfume bottles to her collections, she very candidly admits that she wanted to highlight the ‘romantic’ side of life. These delicately carved perfume bottle necklaces are sold in the range between $1,500 and $15,000.
