Capturing Precious Moments: A Photoshoot with Customers and Their Four-Legged Companions
Take a glimpse of behind the scenes of the heartwarming photoshoot that brought together customers, their furry friends, and exquisite jewellery.
When it comes to unconditional love, pure gestures and unwavering loyalty, few can match the expressions of those universally loved pets – dogs. C. Krishniah Chetty Group of Jewellers decided to celebrate these relationships between humans and their pet dogs, cherished over centuries across the world by creating the Friendship Day Collection, specially crafted for our furry companions.
Aptly named “BowWowBling“, the collection reflected a deep-rooted connection to the family’s 150-year-old legacy in jewellery. The C. Krishniah Chetty Group of Jewellers’ heritage, presently being helmed by the lineage’s 6th generation, reflects the deep relationships humans have shared with their dogs over time.
“Growing up surrounded by the loyal companionship of our dogs, I was reminded daily of the unwavering bond we share. These personal experiences have significantly influenced the designs in this collection. They’ve driven us to craft pieces that celebrate not only the connection between pets and owners but also pay homage to the legacy we continue to nurture”, says Mr. Chaitanya V. Cotha, Executive Director at C. Krishniah Chetty Group of Jewellers.
Each Design Reflects the Pet’s Unique Personality
The “BowWoWBling” collection reflects the various distinct personalities of different canine breeds, achieved through the captivating use of agates. Each agate is meticulously chosen, reflecting the unique traits that make each dog special. The attention to detail, finesse and the uniqueness of each piece is a tribute to the loyalty, joy, and the companionship dogs bring into our lives.
Another highlight of the collection is that it reflects an artistic fusion of hand craftsmanship and machine precision. The intricate agate patterns are enhanced through a fine blend of traditional handwork and machine precision. This ensures that the intrinsic essence of each breed is faithfully captured, celebrating the strength and individuality that dogs represent.
The design process for “Bow Wow Bling” embodies a harmonious blend of tradition and innovation. The journey began with in-depth research into each owner that wished to be part of the campaign. The designs and materials resonate with the nature of the companionship and a sincere attempt was made to recreate the closest representation of real dogs. The process included numerous sketches, prototypes, and meticulous revisions to achieve the final designs. The craftsmen leveraged their skills and passion to ensure each piece is not just a design but an embodiment of the love we have for our loyal companions.
Carefully Chosen Materials. Meticulously Crafted Pieces
