I married into the family of a diamond jeweler. My father-in-law has been creating high-quality, high-value Indian diamond jewelry for his clients in Mumbai since 1977. My immediate and extended families were one of his first clients. It was through this relationship I met my husband.
During our wedding, my in-laws gifted me several pieces of gold and diamond jewelry including my mangalsutra (Indian wedding chain). Although the jewelry pieces were exquisite, I was not able to wear most of them after moving to the United States. The jewelry was too traditional or too dressy for daily wear. It was stored in the bank safe and rarely worn.
The designer in me and my conceptual thinking was at work. It occured to me that women in western countries were looking for modern mangalsutras that aligned with their modern lifestyles.
This led me to start designing and creating modern mangalsutras with a traditional touch at my father-in-law’s studio in Mumbai, India. I have been having a lot of fun creating unique and timeless designs that my customers continue to cherish.
