Here's a look at the best catwalk moments from Day Three of India International Jewellery Week.

More shimmer, shine and glamour lit up the runway as India International Jewellery Week continued into its third day on August 1.

Fabulous outfits, set off by splendid jewels and the occasional famous face had the audience spellbound. Here's how it all went down.

Opening things was GIA India with their heavyduty collection -- seen here is model Anchal Kumar wearing both a choker and three-strand necklace, the former set off by an emerald solitaire and the latter by rubies. The chandelier earrings match both.
