Nature is beautiful; it is wild and full of inspiration. Sanskriti Jewels latest collection, “Songs of Nature”, is inspired by the symphonies of love and happiness the Earth plays around us.
Let me narrate a magical story of Emily!
Emily enters the book name “Songs of Nature” and comes across a barren forest. Dishearted by the distraught ambience, Emily starts playing music, and soon the forest becomes full of life with flowers, birds and animals! Seeing the happiness around, mother nature plucks a flower and gifts it to Emily, which turns into a magnificent jewel. Thus, Emily names the jewels “SONGS OF NATURE”.
It was indeed a magical experience for me to see this lovely curation of jewellery and storytelling that I witnessed for the first time. Thank you, Sanskriti Jewels, for bringing us close to nature!
