When it comes to jewelry, I am always on the lookout for uniquely beautiful pieces. Jewelry is a form of self-expression, and I love mine embedded with semi-precious stones in all the colors of the rainbow. I look for high-quality pieces that can promise many years of wear (after all, many of my most treasured jewels are inheritance pieces from my mother and grandmothers).

I was therefore very excited to discover All That Dori, a contemporary Indian jewelry brand based right here in Dubai. You might have spotted me adorning ‘All that Dori’ on my Instagram feed.

Today I am introducing you to Bhavya Airan, the beautiful, creative young lady behind the brand. She tells us ‘all that’ goes behind the creation of a boutique jewelry brand, what inspires her design sensibilities, and gives us tips on curating a besotted collection of our own.

There is something timeless about traditional Indian jewelry. You might be lucky enough to have inherited a prized piece, encrusted in a rainbow of exquisite gems. The most besotted style of Indian jewelry is the ‘Navratna’. Navratna translates to ‘9 gems’, and this special combination of precious stones has a deep-rooted cultural and astrological significance in the Indian subcontinent.

Highly sought after and often too steeply priced thanks to the weight of gold each piece is based on, Navratna jewelry has been worn by royalty, the rich and famous, and ever so often seen worn by Bollywood sirens in epic movies.

Want to own a piece of prized Navratna yourself? Brace yourselves Dubai, Numaish Lifestyle Exhibitions is hosting a very special jewelry exhibition entitled Art Karat. The 2-day event will showcase Navratna – The Gemstone Collection by celebrated jewelry designer Asha Kamal Modi.
