Padma Lakshmi launches jewelry line

Padma Lakshmi is launching a line of fine jewelry which is inspired by cooking ingredients and her Indian heritage.

“It’s inspired by things like seeds and pods, like cardamom, lentils and cloves,” said the Indian-born Lakshmi, whose passions also include traveling, writing books and articles and producing documentaries. “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 collection consists of more than 50 styles of 10-karat and 14-karat gold jewelry, including necklaces, rings and cuffs. The line goes from day to night, including delicate arm cuffs with citrine briolettes, four-row gold cuffs with charms and dangling gold earrings reminiscent of a common kitchen sight: a fish bone. Several details echo Lakshmi’s Indian heritage, which incorporates jewelry as a symbol of beauty and wealth.

Padma ranges in retail price from $375 to $6,600 and just hits Bergdorf Goodman.
