“ This is our milestone year and we are trying to take the regal legacy to smaller cities and towns which are inhabited by luxury seekers and heritage lovers. Royal Fables is envisaged as that one platform where we showcase the aura of Princely India as recreated by young scions of royal families, “ says Anshu Khanna, Founder, Royal Fables.
Royal Fables has tied up with Plumtin, a couture label based out of Chandigarh to host the preview on 7th December 2018 at their store.

“ The bond between Kanjimull and Princely India dates back to 1870 when my great grandfather Kanjimull Khanna, started designing personal jewelry for the Royal family of Patiala. Other states of Punjab followed. Slowly our name spread right up to Great Britain and we were designing for the nobles of Britain.”
That set the tone for what is now Kanjimull and sons – a name synonymous with fine jewelry. “We at Kanjimull and Sons use the finest quality of gemstones and Diamonds and dare to experiment with rare color combinations to create fine jewels with interesting designs. I am excited to present our collection at the upcoming Royal Fables at the Taj Chandigarh,” says Gaurav Khanna.
