Deepa and Jay Lakhani are the duo behind 8-year-old jewelry label – Deepa Gurnani. They were kind enough to invite me on a visit to their showroom and studio. Both hail from traditional design backgrounds. Deepa (originally from Mumbai) studied at Central Saint Martins and worked for design greats like Alexander McQueen, Fendi and Ungaro. Jay also went to design school at FIT and trained with Fine Jewelry greats from Tiffany and Bvlgari. They both had an early understanding of the quality standards expected to succeed in this business.
