As part of my “Brand Spotlight” series, I wanted to highlight a new-to-me jewelry brand that has caught my eye lately: Deepa Gurnani. Their pieces comprise mostly of statement earrings handcrafted with beads and embroidery. While the pieces can be worn year-round or anywhere, I relate them to summer and beachy destinations (like a vacation I wish I was taking).
About Deepa Gurnani Jewelry
Deepa Gurnani, a husband-and-wife team, makes gorgeous handcrafted jewelry with hand-embroidered elements. Their mission — straight from their website — is to preserve and refine the storied craft of Indian hand embroidery. Their hand crafted accessories are created using responsible and ethical methods, and they commit a portion of their profits to charitable causes.
My Favorite Deepa Gurnani Jewelry Pieces
I grouped my favorite pieces into themes that I noticed when browsing through their collection: shells, tassels, and hearts.
Every summer I pick up one or two new pieces of jewelry that scream “summer” to me — whether that’s an earring made of straw, some fun sun earrings, or something with shells. I love these pieces which incorporate cowrie shells with other items like pearls and gems.
Nothing says “statement jewelry” like a pair of large tassel earrings. I used to be afraid to wear them, but I wear earrings so infrequently that now it’s fun to break out a pair. These are an easy way to add fun to any outfit.
You know about my love for heart jewelry, so there’s not much more to explain here. However, this collection takes on a more colorful approach than what I typically wear.
