The Nizam collection

Zaara Nizam jewelry

Nizam” – a 11-piece MughalJadau”-style set that is fit for royalty. The Mughals were an imperial group of Persian-influenced Muslims that assumed power over India, and brought their aesthetic ideals and highly skilled craftsmanship to the Indian Subcontinent in the 1500s.
This style of jewelry has been an inspiration in contemporary fashion with the likes of Gaultier and McQueen using it in their shows.

The head pieces in this set have been designed in collaboration with Onyx LeShelle of Maitreya who created the gorgeous hairstyles that fit with these jewels. The hair styles are available at the Maitreya mainstore as well as the Zaara store next to the jewelry vendor.

Details of individual pieces below:
