India’s Tanishq pulls jewelry commercial featuring interfaith couple after backlash

The 45-second advertisement for the “Ekatvam (Unity) — the beauty of oneness” collection showed a Muslim family throwing a traditionally South Indian Hindu baby shower for their pregnant Hindu daughter-in-law.

The daughter-in-law says, “But these rituals aren’t celebrated in your home,” and the mother-in-law replies, “But the ritual of making daughters happy is in every home.”

The hashtag “BoycottTanishq” began trending in India after the Tata Group jewelry brand posted the ad at the weekend.

Tanishq removed the commercial from all platforms Monday, later telling CNN that the film had sparked “divergent and severe reactions, contrary to its very objective.”

Some people on social media called for Tanishq to apologize for running the commercial.

Several called the ad “Love Jihad” — a reference to an Islamophobic theory that claims that Muslim families try to convert Hindu women to Islam under the pretext of love and marriage.

Jewelry Ad Featuring Interfaith Couple Sparks Outrage in India

An Indian jewelry brand withdrew an advertisement featuring an interfaith couple after Hindu nationalists accused the company of “love jihad,” a pejorative used to describe marriage between Muslim men and Hindu women in India.

The forty-three second ad, released last week, featured a pregnant woman in a sari, making her way through a luminous home to a garden prepared for her baby shower. The advertisement, since removed from Facebook and YouTube, was described by the jeweler, Tanishq, as a “beautiful confluence of two different religions, traditions and cultures,” reported the BBC. It was meant to promote a new jewelry collection called “Ekatvam,” a Sanskrit word that translates as “oneness.”

“Beautiful things happen when people come together,” reads a description on the company’s website, including the slogan: “The beauty of oneness. One as humanity. One as a nation.”

But on social media, the ad quickly created fault lines, and #BoycottTanishq soon

Richardson startup Layerist launches jewelry styling service that anticipates what you want

Growing up in a family with three sisters, Hannah Brown, 37, is a little nostalgic about opening gifts with her siblings on Christmas morning.

She’d often order jewelry and accessories to match her sisters’ styles. But when the gifts arrived, they weren’t quite the color or quality she expected. Yet her mother was always able to pick out gifts she wasn’t expecting but ended up really enjoying.

Capturing that feeling of Christmas morning year-round is what Brown and her business partner, Kelsey Fraley, 33, want to create with their Richardson-based startup Layerist.co. The jewelry and accessory styling service launched its website last week.

“It would be really great if someone really knew our style, and could just send us a box of stuff, and we could try it on, hold it and see the quality,” Brown said.

The concept for Layerist is similar to the serendipity achieved by popular apparel

How To Crochet A Necklace With Beads

The scarab beetle has been a symbolic motif in Egyptian jewelry for hundreds of years. Some fashionable articles of the time included massive rings, watch chains and fobs, small purses, wristwatches, ornate boxes, compacts, lipstick cases, brooches, lapel watches, line bracelets, heavy bracelets, jabot pins, lorgnettes, pendant necklaces, pendant watches, lockets, diamond-studded barrettes, bar pins, ear clips, and drop and chandelier earrings.

Titanium is an effective consideration vs. stainless-steel necklaces, as each of these metals are more comparable in look, with Titanium costing much more. One of many many issues that I really like about most offloom beadweaving stitches is that easy designs can make stunning jewelry items.

I really like wire-wrapped jewelry because it has an artitistic high quality. Earrings are what frames your face, if the color and elegance are right they will be like two spotlights including a glow to your face, making it brighter and extra … Read More

‘That is beautiful, man.’ Actor Jon Cryer thrilled to get his wedding ring back thanks to Vancouver jewelry sleuth

Standing on Vancouver’s iconic seawall, Vancouver’s iconic rain hammering down as the dark closed in, Jon Cryer was despondent.

On Friday night, the American actor had been walking to meet some castmates — he’s currently in B.C. because he’s playing Lex Luthor in the Supergirl TV series — when he pulled a hand out of his pocket and heard a tiny “ping,” he wrote in a Twitter thread that has since been shared by thousands. He walked a few more steps before he realized what had happened.

His wedding ring? Gone.

Cryer, probably best known for co-starring on Two and a Half Men, for which he won two Primetime Emmys, says he turned on the flashlight on his phone and began an ad hoc grid search of the pavement and soggy strip of grass, all the while wondering if it was possible the ring rolled right into the ocean.

The Jewelry Secrets of Ryan Murphy’s Ratched

With Sharon Stone dripping in diamonds and Sarah Paulson in understated pearls, the Netflix show Ratched sends strong messages about the power, or restraint, of jewelry.

Was it just me or did you also screenshot the gold tassel earrings Sharon Stone wears as Lenore Osgood in Ryan Murphy’s Ratched?

I could not immediately identify them the way I could some of Mrs. Osgood’s other incredible jewels in the Netflix series. Any character that lives at Dawnridge—the outrageously colorful, incredibly glamorous, and definitely wild estate Tony Duquette created high in Beverly Hills, and where Osgood lives in the show—would likely have one or two Duquette pieces in their collection.

And I spotted a few Duquette originals around Osgood’s neck, but I wondered: how in the carefully choreographed colors of a Murphy extravaganza did Duquette’s malachite and lapis and coral fit in? Co-costume designers Lou Eyrich &
