Thrilled about her first jewellery brand association, Alia Bhatt said, “I’m quite excited to be part of BlueStone.com’s journey. The brand complements my personal style beautifully as it is contemporary, elegant and offers a fantastic range of eclectic designs for every occasion. Today’s modern shopper who is constantly on the move will love the thousands of design options and ease of shopping on BlueStone.com.”
Speaking on the association, Gaurav Singh Kushwaha, Founder and CEO, BlueStone.com said, “We are delighted to have Alia Bhatt as the face of brand BlueStone.com which has grown strongly over the past few years.
