Her personal style
A graduate of Gemology from Gemological Institute of America, Sonali is keeping up the legacy of her father through her designs. Coming from a family of diamond manufacturers, she always had a penchant for the gems and its wondrous characteristics.
Describing her personal style, she shares, “For me, Jewellery design is a form of art where the medium consists of some of the most splendid creations of nature- the diamond, gold and gemstones. My designs tend to be simple and bold with special attention to line, form, colour and space. I design collections on special themes so that each piece has some interesting underlying concept or a story to tell. Each piece is crafted with utmost care for detail, finish and precision.”
A mother of two lovely 11-year-old twin daughters, Sonali is all set to share her knowledge in this extensive field through her workshop.
