Sterling Silver jewellery series: 1-Tourmaline jewellery

My dad was posted in Chennai for a couple of years; this was a perfect excuse for me to explore the various shopping avenues & food there. I love shopping at Spencer Plaza, they have beautiful stores…My personal favorites are the cute & colorful Juti’s store on the top floor right to the food court: these guys have beautiful Jutis/Chappal which are very colorful and decorated with beautiful beads, shells & glitter. Another place is the silver jewellery store beside the Ceylon shopping area on second floor I think. Unfortunately I do not recollect the names of both the places. This place has huge collection of silver jewellery. And if you know me any better – you would have guessed by now that I would have madly bought loads of jewellery from this store in multiple colors, I am the way I am - Beyond hope!

From today I am going to post multiple pictures of the jewellery that I have picked-up from this second floor store & other shops @Spencer’s. I promise that I will get the names of the places in my next visit.

Here you go…
