Kothari - Necklaces
Growing up in India, Taru Kothari developed her passion for antique jewelry. In the 1970s she began her own business, and she rapidly gained a following due to her integrity and keen eye for design. Her son Tej joined her in 1995 after earning his degree in biology. His knowledge of the natural world and appreciation for the clean lines of modern design brought a new perspective to the business. The Kothari family now resides in Northern California, where they are surrounded by a diversity of landscape and culture. Their fascination with the arts and sciences provides them with endless sources of inspiration for their designs. Kothari jewelry ranges from elemental stones framed simply in gold to ornamental objects with sparkling diamonds and lustrous pearls to uniquely imagined experimental pieces. Each Kothari piece is carefully designed for beauty, balance and wearability. All stones are either hand-selected or custom-cut, and each piece of jewelry is hand made in 18 or 22 karat gold. All items are crafted with a meticulous attention to detail. Kothari jewelry is made to be enjoyed today and treasured always.
