Jewellery Focus: Swati Dhanak

A specialist in fine gold and diamond jewellery, Dubai-born desinger Swati Dhanak comes from a long-line of traditional goldsmiths and spent her childhood at her family-owned jewellery shop, opened by her grandfather since the 1950’s in Dubai. This early exposure helped her become a true expert in jewellery making and led to start of her eponymous fine jewellery brand.

The New York-based designer draws inspiration from landscape lines, architecture and abstract art; for example one of her first collection named Movement, is heavily influenced by her home-country’s rippled sandy deserts. Having lived in between the East and the West parts of the world, Dhanak developed a unique aesthetic and her breathtaking designs are all customized using the finest 18k gold and diamonds, creating wearable pieces featuring cutting-edge geometric structures and shapes.

Today, Swati Dhanak Jewellery designs are defined with a unique industrial feel, giving her work a strong and recognizable identity across the globe. And with just three collections under her belt, the fashion-forward brand is already a big hit amongst many major stars in Hollywood.
