Obsession- House of Waris

Actor, director, jewelry designer, bon vivant- Waris Ahluwalia

Ruby Wings

Love Conquers All

Parrot Claw


“I fell in love with a bird on the wallpaper,” Says Waris of the birds in the bathroom of room 502 at the Raphael Hotel in Paris (The hotel made a cameo in his friend Wes Anderson’s prequel to “The Darjeeling Limited.) “And I realized that birds could be the perfect way to explore the fine, detailed work of enameling and pavé.” He designed six avian jewels under his House of Waris label and named them after famous love-seeking literary characters.
