Looking for some super-chic unique Jewelry by an independent designer? Look no further than – check out what’s new from my personal fave India-based designer, Eina Aluwalia.

If you haven’t been there already, you NEED to go and check out the beautiful handmade jewelry on It’s all from amazing independent designers, each of them with their own profiles and collections on the site. In a sea of ‘handmade’ is a cut above the rest because it’s curated, which means a team of expert fashionistas get to decide what goes on the site based on quality, style, and the reputation of the designer themselves. Eina Ahluwalia is hailed as India’s first conceptual jewelry artist. Firmly believing in the importance of making a concerted move away from factory-designed products to those made by real artisans with real passions and stories, Eina now sells her collections through Boticca:

“The creative process begins with a lot of coffee and angst. I have to reach within myself and sift through a lot of thoughts and ideas to find the one strong story that needs to be shared.” – Eina Ahluwalia

Eina is one of more than 250 designers from 40+ countries all over the world now selling her pieces through Boticca, which is actually the only place on the net that you can feel that amazing sense of discovery you get when you find a rare, one-off trinket on your travels. Check out my favorite piece below!

Traditionally, a Kirpan is a small symbolic sword worn on the body by Sikhs – a warrior race that acted to protect oppressed communities from Mughal rule in India. Amazingly, this piece, which can be worn at several different lengths, is 100% handcrafted, featuring intricate fretwork on brass with 22-karat gold plating.

There are so many beautiful and very different pieces on the site, too. More than 6,000 items, in fact! Feast your peepers on these stunners, for example:



  1. Malaga necklace – Jolita Jewellery
  2. Clemence woven necklace in pink/orange – Jennifer Loiselle
  3. In a Sentimental Mood Necklace – Maria Zureta

Visit Boticca’s homepage and be sure to browse the site properly –the blog, style ideas and designer stories are a good read, too!
