About the collection: Designed in 18k gold, the luxurious collection has been masterfully crafted in every sense. Crystallizing the fluid layers chocolate and vanilla within Magnum into an intricate motif, the collection effortlessly blends grace, decadence & a sense of free pleasure. Meticulously crafted to be the summer’s hottest accessory, each piece of the collection is inspired by and named after the emotions the ice cream inspires.
From Bliss (the bracelet), Relish(the ring), Luscious (the brooch),Divine (the necklace) to Tempt (the earrings), the collection has pieces engraved with chocolate brown diamonds within caramel-like enamel layers.

Speaking about the collaboration,Farah Khan said, “Pleasure, to me, is synonymous with passion. When it comes to crafting beautiful pieces of art through jewellery, I don’t just love it… I live for it. The decadence and richness of Magnum’s flavours and colours directly coincide with my conscious choice of using chocolate diamonds, caramel brown enamel and gold. But my final burst of inspiration? My beautiful muse, the sheer embodiment of the modern Magnum woman… Kalki!”
Speaking about her experience being a muse, Kalki Koechlin said,“Pleasure is in the now. It’s in the present. It’s in passion. It’s in expression.
