The Jewelry Insider

January 27, 2009


Joining Heidi Klum as a model-turned-reality show host-turned-jewelry designer, Top Chef’s, Padma Lakshmi, is launching a line of fine jewelry, which is inspired by (big surprise) cooking ingredients.

“It’s inspired by things like seeds and pods, like cardamom, lentils and cloves,” the Indian-born Lakshmi told WWD.

“I wanted jewelry that isn’t big or grand. I wanted to make something with an exotic lilt and a nod to my background.”

Called “Padma”, the day to night collection consists of more than 50 styles of 10-karat and 14-karat gold jewelry, including necklaces, rings and cuffs. There are delicate bracelets with citrine briolettes, four-row gold cuffs with charms, and dangling gold earrings reminiscent of that delicate culinary carnage – a fish bone. Other details echo Lakshmi’s Indian heritage.

If you want to ‘pack up your knives’ and order a Padma piece for your jewelry box, the line will hit Bergdorf Goodman in May with prices ranging from $375 to $6,600.

In the meantime, it’s getting down to the wire for this season’s Top Chef hopefuls in New York. Catch the series on Bravo! and regale in Padma’s signature look of disdain.

    The bracelet & rings the people women has worn is one of my dream jewelries. I am really fond of buying 2 to 3 jewelries every year as well as accessories and watches as my reward to myself.
