Zambian emeralds dazzle in inaugural collaboration with Indian label Shruti Sushma

The newly unveiled collection of necklaces and earrings harks back to the glamour of bygone days and features Zambian emeralds from the Kagem mine.


Shruti Sushma is a mother-daughter fine jewellery house with showrooms in Ahmedabad and Bangalore and is revered by a discerning clientele in India and beyond for its devotion to the finest Indian craftsmanship traditions.

Redefining Indian style with delicate and wearable designs, the new Gemfields x Shruti Sushma collection showcases floral-inspired pieces alongside those that nod to India’s rich heritage. Many of the pieces pair emeralds with diamonds and tanzanites creating a subtle floral tapestry; and all are set in 18k gold.


The Amore Emerald and Tanzanite Earrings and Necklace convey the essence of love with heart-shaped gemstones. The Honey Flute Necklace arranges emeralds and diamonds in a beguiling pattern reminiscent of a swirly honey flute. And the Sugarloaf Long Emerald Chain has a delicate flowery motif with sugarloaf-cut emeralds. The Emerald and Diamond Double Hoops are both classically elegant and traditionally Indian in style.

Shruti Sushma began its journey 25 years ago, when Sushma Chhajer, who came from a family of Indian textile merchants and is self-taught in jewellery, began designing pieces. The business took off when her daughter Shruti joined her some years later and their first showroom opened in 2008.


The label is a perfect partner for Gemfields – a world-leading miner and marketer of responsible coloured gemstones, which prides itself on championing designers who share its ethos.

Shruti sums up the synergy between the two, saying: “The exceptional colour and clarity of Gemfields’ emeralds provides the perfect canvas to craft captivating and distinctive designs that resonate with our clients, who appreciate both aesthetic beauty and ethical considerations in their jewellery choices.”
