Why: Amongst the hottest jewelry la-belles in the country, En Inde plays notoriously hard to get: a lone stunner appears at Good Earth or is picked up from co-owner Sonal Sood’s pad, out of which she retails by appointment only. This weekend, however, you’re guaranteed to get a ton of action at Le Village in Santushti, where En Inde launches many new models, dressed in shells and silk tassels, chains and beads, but also showing plenty of tin. Bang(le) that!
When: Exhibition on today, April 20; stock available through the weekend.
