Profile: Nupur Tron

Beautiful is the perfect word to describe Nupur Tron, her personality, and the jewelry she creates. Four words came to mind the moment I saw her stunning creations, “I want it all!”

Nupur left India at age 16 for a summer holiday in Connecticut to visit her aunt and uncle. She was so taken with the States she stayed to further her education and graduated from F.I.T New York. Through extensive travels to Asia and Europe she learned the technical and production side of the fashion industry.

But it was Paris that would change her course of history. After a brief period at the Paris Fashion Institute, and on her last day in the city, she met future husband Frederic Tron at a couture show. They were engaged within two months and married two years later in St. Tropez. Her jewelery collection launched in Paris at the LeBon Marche in the summer of 2006. "Paris is a magical city I am so lucky to be part of it,” says Nupur.

What is the only other occupation you would consider?
I love what I do. I cannot possibly imagine any other occupation. Creativity seems to come naturally to me in every shape and form.

Which fashion designers have most influenced your style?
There are so many great creators but the one that has influenced me the most is Hubert du Givenchy. His style has timeless elegance.

How would you describe your personal style?
Chic and sophisticated.

What inspires your designs and creativity?
Everything! A woman sitting in a cafe just watching the world go by. Nature is a symphony of endless beauty. My own tradition and heritage that goes centuries back…ancient old architecture deigns, cultures, history and people.

What is your favorite luxury in life
Travelling, discovering cultures and people and inviting my friends over for dinner, as I love to cook!

Who are your style icons?
Audrey Hepburn for her enduring elegance of timeless beauty and charm. Maharani of Jaipur Gayatri Devi for her personification of beauty, grace and elegance. Most of all it would be my Grandmother for her beauty and strength. She is still strong at 97!

What is your most prized possession?
There are quite a few but the one closest to my heart is the coral Ganesh from my mother.

Who would you most like to meet and how would you spend the day?
Oh…there are quite a few to name, but the one I would love to meet most of all is Mahatma Gandhi, father of our nation. I would love to spend the day with him by simply listening to his utmost enriched life experiences and non violent fight for freedom.
