I was always inspired by the magic of the earth, the elements, people, and culture that breathes life into it. I wanted to translate everything that inspired me growing up into my work, to create pieces that felt powerful, looked beautiful, and told a unique story.

Nirvam Shah, Diamond Specialist

Nirvam’s journey with diamonds began even before he was born with a family legacy that dates back decades. Born and brought up in Antwerp, Belgium, the diamond trading capital of the world, he found a deep appreciation for all that sparkles at a very young age. Spending time by his father’s side, a prominent diamond wholesaler in Belgium, he then decided to further pursue his passion in the diamond wholesaling industry.

Megan Kothari, AARYAH Founder

Born into a family of jewelers, her evolution as an artist has always been energized by her surroundings. Megan hopes to create timeless pieces that grow with the wearer and communicate an empowering message that lasts a lifetime. Growing up, her grandfather would tell her stories of their ancestors, lineage and family upbringing. Even though she was born in the US, the connection she felt back home to India was powerful and became a part of how she expressed herself, from what she wore, to her interaction, and eventually into her work.
