"When I wear my Riddhika Jesrani jewelry, I feel down and out, while the perpetual rainfall in my mind won't stop" - Said No-one.
Riddhika was born in India, raised in Oman, and has traveled extensively, and so the landmarks of various places from her travels - whether the Sagrada Família in Barcelona or the Grand Mosque in Muscat - have inspired her distinctive designs and collections. She was trained as a communications designer at Parsons for three years, and followed up with coursework at the prestigious GIA (Gemological Institute of America), focusing on designing with precious and semi-precious stones. Over the last few years, Riddhika has used her jewelry brand to raise awareness around various causes and has partnered with various non-profits and NGOs, often donating 100% of the proceeds to the organizations.
As a brand we believe that good collaborations can make you think bigger, wider, and greater while adding value to life in small ways. Our recent tie up with Project FUEL has been most exciting. We have taken some of the life lessons collected by Deepak Ramola and made them into wisdom jewels in the form of brooches. How fantastic is it that you can now wear wisdom?
The Akanksha Foundation
We also believe that working with children is what keeps our minds and hearts young. It also is essential that we mold our future and help add more value to their lives in any way we can. Which is why we picked The Akanksha Foundation / Art For Akanksha to collaborate a line of jewelry back in 2013. The kids were mentored by Riddhika Jesrani over a few weeks and what came out of that class was pure, unadulterated, colorful magic in the form of necklaces and earrings.
