Mumbai: Glittering Little Things

Courtesy Rose

Mumbai’s bazaars and boutiques stock every type of jewelry imaginable. We’ve selected three of the top shops for three different sparkling styles.


Established in 1864, Tribhovandas Bhimji Zaveri is a Willy Wonka factory for gold lovers. The various simple, slim bangles make perfect gifts, and the reasonable prices are determined by weight. 241–243 Zaveri Bazaar;


Stylists, celebrities, and socialites head to Curio Cottage for semiprecious stone–encrusted handbag charms, belts, necklaces, toe rings, bracelets, and earrings, all set in silver and exquisitely crafted. 19 Mahakavi Bhushan Marg

Over the Top

Rose’s red carpet–worthy chandelier earrings, cocktail rings, and chokers aren’t for those with subtle style. The most beautiful pieces combine diamonds with turquoise, coral, rubies, emeralds, and pearls. 72B Desai Rd.;
