It’s a place that’s really hard to miss – located at the foot of Pali Hill, it stands behind a massive door that opens on knocking with an old-world brass knocker. Inside, its plush interiors take the breath away.

“We opened operations in September last year, and the response has been phenomenal,” says Amrita Kakka, Marketing Manager, The Big Door. “Most of our clientele comes from the nearby areas, and there is a fair smattering of expats doing the rounds of the store, too,” she says.

Presented by Vivek and Sunita Gupta, the store tries to make “art and grandeur a part of life.” Spread across 7,500 square feet over two floors and a big terrace space, the store houses Mughal, Nizam and Rajput inspired jewellery from Ravi Jewels, Jaipur, apart from precious and semi-precious jewellery, set in gold, silver and silver-gold plated metal, to Victorian, polkis and jadau pieces. The silver jewellery pieces are a huge hit with customers, says Amrita, since they are pocket-friendly and come in stunning designs.

Apart from these, the store also houses a huge collection of interior pieces. Interestingly, the highlight of the store is its washroom – a treat for the eyes, every item in there is on sale, too!
