We bring you the best of the ongoing India International Jewellery Week 2012 so far -- don't miss it!

The nation's biggest jewellery event is currently underway at a posh suburban hotel in Mumbai and it's quite a starry affair.

No, we don't just mean the diamonds shimmering on the runway -- it's also the celebrity presence of Bollywood actors and supermodels that have turned out in full force.

In the following pages, we bring you the action from the first two days of the IIJW.

The showings were commenced on August 19 with an inauguration by Sonam Kapoor and Hema Malini. While the younger fashionista looked like a million dollars in a strapless green gown and mesh diamond necklace, B-Town's original Dream Girl was the very picture of grace in a simple pink drape and tasteful, understated jewellery.

Here we see actors Tusshar Kapoor and Raima Sen for Gitanjali Gems in association with the BETI foundation.

This showing saw a staggering 75 movie and TV personalities take to the ramp decked out in ensembles by renowned couturier Vikram Phadnis and Gitanjali's fine line of jewellery -- they were all there to express solidarity against atrocities like female foeticide, acid attacks and women's illiteracy.
