Harsahaimal Shiamlal Jewellers, Moradabad

HSJ is a jewellery flagship store dealing in luxury for multitude has recently opened in Moradabad, India. One of its kind in the city, sprawled over 12000 sq. feet.

Situated in a city known for its metal handicrafts and high Islamic and Mughal influence, the designers were inspired to create a store that was contemporary with a local flavour using Islamic orders, geometries and patterns. Result was a modish design appealing to a wider audience including niche clientele.

Elements with detailed Mughal craftsmanship are fully captured and used to create an environment that leaves people awestruck. The interiors see a rich use of coloured steel, mirror, marble inlay works and heavy fabrics. Every product has been given a special display infrastructure and environment suiting the product and client profile. Each of the three sections of the store-silver, gold, diamond/designer jewellery are thus guided by a carefully chosen colour scheme. Shades of browns, reds and burgundy highlight the gold section whereas the diamond section sees the predominant use of blues and greys.

From the outside the building was intended to evoke a feeling of a vault like solidity and impenetrability. The façade makes a bold statement with a silent interesting surface detailing combined with stained glass doors almost 30 feet high which form the main focus from a distance. Texture and colour pallet used was typically Islamic with emphasis on blues, green and gold.
