While studying fashion at the prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London, Deepa Gurnani beaded couture pieces for Alexander McQueen, Ben Maher, Emanuel Ungaro, Fendi, Marjan Pejoski, and more. Working with various designers, Deepa became inspired to create many pieces on her own, experimenting with beading and embroidery techniques eventually settling on hand beaded hairpieces as the cornerstone of her ever-expanding collection.

Jay Lakhani, a jewelry designer from the Fashion Institute of Technology, NYC, always dreamt of creating jeweled accessories. Having trained under the head designers of Tiffany and Bulgari, Jay was always drawn to fashion. With basics and black on the rise in fashion, he was keen to create something distinct and unusual-- something that would make a statement and give the wearer a distinct sense of style, glamour and individuality.

After the marriage of Deepa and Jay, the two designers collaborated their ideas and created pieces that incorporated jewelry and fashion and launched their label "Deepa Gurnani."

Each Deepa Gurnani piece is individually handcrafted in India, with the finest quality materials and crystals by highly trained and skilled craftsmen. Each is backed by a beautiful printed cotton for comfort and finished with 1-2 elastic strips to ensure the best fit--whether you wear it across your forehead or in your hair.

The designers add their final and personal touch to every piece by paying particular attention to quality and finish.
