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, AND AURA, A MANIFESTATION OF A PERSON'S SPIRIT. TAKEN TOGETHER, KAURA JEWELS ELEVATE, EQUALIZE AND  INDIVIDUALIZE THE WEARER. 

THE COLLECTIONS OF EARRINGS, RINGS, NECKLACES, CUFF AND CUFFLINKS ARE REALIZED FROM 18- AND 24-KARAT GOLD, STERLING SILVER AND GEMS AND MINERALS.

EVERY PIECE IS HANDCRAFTED WITH LOVE IN LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA.
