Tejani jewelry designer Urvi Prunier didn’t start out as a jewelry designer, but she has been living and breathing the fashion industry since she graduated from F.I.T. in 1993.
Upon graduation she immediately launched her first entrepreneurial endeavor “Suitable Suits,” a corporate wardrobe service for businesswomen. From there she went on to gain experience in a variety of sales, management and merchandising positions at Chanel, YSL and Nicole Miller.
Ultimately, it was these experiences that led Prunier back to her earliest passion, jewelry, as well as leading her to embrace her Indian roots. The name of her line, Tejani, comes from her family, and when designing her jewelry she doesn’t stray far from her heritage because each of her pieces is handcrafted in India. Tejani jewelry captures the glamour and incomparable style of Bollywood with an attention-grabbing array of bib-necklaces, chokers, bracelets, bangles and chandelier earrings.
Prunier uses turquoise, jade, citrine, peridot and crystal to create each of her elaborate handcrafted designs along with elaborate settings to allow movement in the jewelry that are both intricate and audacious. Tejani has been featured in publications like InStyle, Glamour, Lucky, Bazaar and Cosmopolitan, among others.
