kothari was established in 2009 after tej honed his skills designing jewelry under his mom's tutelege.  his designs are based on the details + proportions of beautiful antique jewelry viewed thru a lens of modern + minimalist sensibility under a filter of nature and its tiniest wonders.  each piece has hand crafted character + visual balance and graceful wearability.  the stones are custom cut or hand selected and primarily set in 18k gold though he does not shy away from experimenting with other materials.
