Nestled in the corner of a shopping complex near Nehru Park Road in Vastrapur, is “Kabras Silver Jewelry & Shoppe”, famous for specializing in quality imitation jewelry. Owned by Mahesh Kabra, this showroom has gained reputation in less than a decade for being a girl’s best friend if one can’t afford to cash on actual jewelry products. Unfortunately, nothing has ever been written about “Kabras” and its business mostly thrives on word-of-mouth.
The kind of jewelry that this showroom sells has intricate work. Detailed and traditional designs is the USP of “Kabras”. I was recently gifted two pairs of earrings.
The sea blue earrings have a simple design. They can go with an elaborate kurti and a pair of jeans. The gorgeous earrings give space to mix ‘n’ match desi and western attire. The gold earrings, on the other hand, are very heavy not only in terms of weight but also have a more complicated cut-work. Since the earrings play with pink and green, the variety of attire that can go with them is limited.
This place also sells bangles, rings, nose pins and necklaces. Nevertheless, “Kabras” is a great place to shop if you are planning to jazz up western wear with a splash of India!
