A jewelry enthusiast, Houston, Texas native Halleh Amiralai got inspired to craft designs with a modern fashion forward elegance. She traveled to India to learn centuries old techniques from top-level artisans, in particular those working with gold. The history of accessorizing goes back 5,000 years in India, when women began to adorn themselves with precious metals and gems. Considered an art form, jewelry plays an important part in the lives of all Indian women, representing security and prestige. After completing her studies, Halleh came back to the United States to launch her eponymous line, making handmade pieces in 18-karat gold and incorporating gems such as diamonds, sapphires, lapis, Persian turquoise and emeralds. Luxurious, sophisticated and with just the right amount of seasoning to elevate any outfit for any situation.
