KAURA JEWELS are MODERN ARMOUR for the URBAN WARRIOR.
The brand takes life from traditional Indian Arms, intricately embellished with precious stones, carved with elaborate scenes and so strikingly beautiful that they resemble jewelry more than weaponry.
KAURA is a Portmanteau of KAUR, a GURMUKHI name given to all Sikh women meaning "fearless princess on whom lies great responsibility , and AURA - the ever-changing flow of life energy around one’s body.
Taken together, KAURA JEWELS elevates, equalizes and individualizes the wearer.
The collections are realized from 14-, 18- and 24- Karat Gold, Sterling Silver, Gems and Minerals. Every piece is forged with great love and intention in Los Angeles, California.
HARVINDER KAUR KEILA
Although she was born in the United Kingdom, raised in Canada and now lives in Los Angeles, California, Harvinder Keila has always been deeply interested in her Indian Heritage.
As a child, she was dazzled by her grandfather's accounts of 19th century Punjab, which was experiencing a period of renaissance. KAURA JEWELS was conceived in 2012 from Harvinder's fascination with weaponry from this bygone era.
Harvinder developed an ability to work with her hands as an environmental consultant for 10 years. After completing a metal smithing course in 2008, she began applying this skill to jewelry manufacture and never looked back.
