Aditi Rao Hydari talks about her love for vintage natural diamonds at Vogue India’s Diamond Festival

“As a child, the most wonderful thing you could see was the stars in the sky that made you want to reach out and hold them in the palm of your hand. Today, I find this same sparkle reflected in natural diamonds”, thinks Aditi Rao Hydari. The star can usually be found scrolling through the most beautiful names in the world of couture for her family of eight million on Instagram, but today her face is refreshingly cleansed and she opted for a pair instead of layered diamond necklaces to add sparkle to her look as she sits down with Tata CLiQ Luxury Editor-in-Chief Nonita Kalra to discuss her love affair with diamonds for the second edition of vogue and the virtual edition of the Diamond Festival 2022 by the Natural Diamond Council.

“My earliest memory of diamonds was the design of my grandmother’s necklace, a nine-stone setting traditionally found in South Indian jewelry. The choker had basra beads and rubies that didn’t go with the pattern at all, but I suspect it was intentionally put together like that,” she recalls. After spending the pandemic burning the candle at both ends to release a slew of new releases, Rao Hydari has unsurprisingly considered natural diamonds a little treat for herself – the star currently ordered a pair of chandbaalis which she pronounces like the “OG hoop”.’ She divulges: “When natural diamonds are set in chandbaalis, it looks like the moon and stars, as the name suggests, it’s like wearing the moon on your face, and I think there’s a dreamy romanticism there.

While her daily lexicon of must-have diamonds is highlighted by stacked rings and classic solitaires, her eyes light up when she talks about her fascination with vintage diamond hair combs. “The timelessness of vintage jewelry means it’s always relevant in every moment. Yes, it changes depending on the wearer and that moment in history, but it always has value and I think luxury depends on ultimately about how special it makes you feel,” she concludes.
