Sirjana is the creative force behind the Sirjana Singh brand and believes the prime aim of jewelry is to enhance a woman’s beauty. For her, each piece is a unique work of art meant to adorn a unique woman.
She is a pioneer in designing fine jewels for the modern woman using jewelry techniques invented in India, including the Kundan setting of uncut diamonds, enameling on gold and silver, stone setting known as Jadau, and the Thewa technique of infusing gold on molten glass.
