When growing up in Mombasa, Kenya, Anit Dodhia regularly visited the jewellery gallery run by his family and studied the range of gems that were on display. His interest was piqued, and he soon discovered he had inherited the same passion for manipulating precious metals and stones that his parents had. Now the founder and chief designer of Kaali Designs based in San Diego, California, Anit still remembers where he came from: “I often reflect on the natural environment in which I was raised. It spurs my creativity and finds its way into my designs, especially in the form of textures.”
Renowned for: Incorporating new textures into already sophisticated and challenging styles.
Handpicked by Jewelstreet because: Anit uses innovative colour combinations in conjunction with both gemstones and precious metals to form fashion-forward pieces.
