Artisan Ritu

"Hi, I'm Ritu and I was born in Jaipur, India, popularly known as the pink city. But did you know that it is also called the City of Gems? For me, to be in the field of jewelry is like being in dreamland, for I have always wanted to be connected to this wonderful world of gems and jewelry.

"Though I have always been fascinated by the art of jewelry, I never got to actually be in the field until I got married. Many people in Jaipur have a long lineage in crafts and trade, which has been handed down from generation to generation. And my husband is one of them. His family has worked in the design and crafting of jewelry for many years and, when I married him, I was exposed to its vast and enigmatic beauty. I would spend endless time watching them work. It was a delight to see.

"Slowly my husband encouraged me to create some jewelry, thus I started on my journey. I am greatly influenced by the ancient designs and I bring them to my work. I also work on contemporary themes.

"It has definitely been a long journey for me. I know I have a long way to go and I need your support. I want to invite you to my small world to see and appreciate my collections."
