Quintessential Luxe

Diacolor, the retail foray of designer Rishabh Tongya, is a sparkling journey of aristocratic luxe. Feted at international red carpet venues, the brand stands out for detail and craft, purity and reliability.
Rishabh carries on the gemstone legacy started by his grandfather, Chandalalji Tongya, in Jaipur, 80 years ago. His father, Rajkumar Tongya, expanded the business globally, as the family became known as the custodians of high quality rare and exquisite gemstones.
Fascinated since childhood with jewellery design, Rishabh has charted his own course with Diacolor, merging luxurious jewellery ensembles into the well-established family enterprise of precious gemstones. In a short time, the brand has become an indispensable source for the next wave of jewellery design. Floral and organic themes, iconic Indian and global art and architecture, blooming tales, bohemian rhapsodies, romantic interludes, the pizzazz of the French Rivera, the Italian Colosseum, Mughal memoirs, the glamorous Indian paisley….history and art merge in the fascinating one-of-a-kind jewellery sets.
No compromises are made on quality of the material used. All diamonds bear VS+ purity and are G-H in colour. The gemstones used are certified by laboratories of world repute, the GIA and HRD, Cublin, and so on.
Colour forms the leitmotif with sparkling diamonds, and other precious gemstones like spinels, kunzites, Zambian emeralds, Mozambiquian rubies, malachites, tourmalines, rare pearls and so on, in innovative cuts and settings.
The heirloom artistry evokes whimsicality, fun and romance. The design oeuvre works past the vagaries of what’s hot, what’s not, celebrating luxurious pageantry and long-lasting feelings.
“My intention is to curate masterpieces of fine quality for the connoisseur, pieces that are treasured from generation to generation, and also exhibit fine fiscal prudence,” says Rishabh. He draws inspiration from the royal gem and jewellery traditions of his native Jaipur, as well as from his travels across Europe, Africa and the Far East. In that sense, the design aesthetic fostered by Rishabh takes into account both local and global considerations with finesse.
One of the latest and biggest product launches from the stable, the fun and perky Titanium Collection for everyday wear, is a testament to the brand’s unique endeavour to cohesively weave together product research and market trends.
On the other hand, the Ochre Garden, laced with Banarasi-cut yellow diamond solitaires accentuated with white diamonds, highlights grandeur and majesty. A passionate mastery over the art of lapidary gives the brand a decisive edge. Apart from the flagship store at Emporio, Delhi, the handcrafted creations have been taken for select previews for glitterati the world over, Bollywood and Hollywood celebs as well as royal patrons.
Brand ambassador, the ethereal beauty Mringanka Singh, Princess of Jammu and Kashmir, says the jewellery lines echo a royal tale re-orchestrated for the modern woman. The breathtaking pieces embrace the aura of an unknown beautiful world. What not to love and lust for?
