A native of Jaipur, India, Arun Bohra was destined to design and make jewelry. He is the eighth generation of a family that has been in the jewelry business since 1841, creating exquisite, elaborately detailed pieces for Indian royalty. Arun draws on the rich heritage of both his family and his culture in creating his own signature line, ARUNASHI. As he describes it, “Being in the jewelry business is as natural to me as breathing.”
Arun began his professional career as a gemstone dealer, where he enjoyed the challenge of finding rare, beautiful stones, which laid the foundation for his profound knowledge of the jewelry industry. In 2004, Arun and his wife, Ashita, combined their names, talents and experience to create their own line of jewelry, Arunashi, a bold, innovative line of luxury jewels. The collection fuses the finest technical achievements with opulence and sophistication. Unexpected mediums, highly articulated metal work, and an infusion of color gloriously expressed in rare gems are the signature elements of Arunashi. Arun is very passionate about design and approaches jewelry as art. Each Arunashi piece embodies gemstones of exceptional quality and the finest craftsmanship, weaving together art and fantasy, tradition and innovation, drama, and subtlety, bringing a fresh voice to an antique craft.
All pieces are one-of-a-kind, and Arun’s work has limited distribution through a handful of retailers around the world, each account carefully selected, that share the same passion and philosophy as that of Arunashi.
