The Arya Esha brand embodies wearable glamour distinguished by cosmopolitan chic.
Arya Esha jewelry is crafted in recycled precious metals and uses ethically sourced gemstones as well as conflict and devastation free diamonds. Each jewel is handcrafted and one-of-a-kind.
In less than one year since its launch, the Arya Esha brand has won a 2015 Jeweler’s Circular Keystone’s (JCK) Rising Star award and a 2014 Commendation Award from the Cultured Pearl Association of America. Arya Esha already has a celebrity following, which includes Claire Danes, Jordana Brewster, and Ming-Na Wen. Arya Esha pieces have been featured in national and regional fashion and lifestyle press, as well as prestigious jewelry trade publications.
The founder and chief designer, Priyanka Murthy, has been designing jewelry for decades, even throughout her notable career in law and political science. While participating in human rights law missions in Africa, and evaluating complex political problems as a Fulbright Scholar in Europe, Priyanka learned that she is most effective when she lets her heart drive her and her mind direct her. "At the intersection of the heart and mind lies that which is most meaningful.” Priyanka’s designs reflect the meaning she finds when she lets her heart do the talking and her mind do the walking.
Informed by her background in academia and law, Priyanka’s designs are inspired by the juxtaposition of the intangible - ideas and theories, with the tangible - nature and art. Priyanka received formal training in jewelry and gemstones from the GIA. Priyanka also holds a law degree and an undergraduate degree from Northwestern University and completed Masters Studies as a Fulbright Scholar from Copenhagen University, Denmark. She is a member of the Women’s Jewelry Association and the Cultured Pearl Association. The Meaning of Arya Esha, pronounced Are-ya Ee-shah, means Goddess of Truth in the ancient North Indian language Sanskrit. The inspiration for the name came from a trait Priyanka noticed in almost every person she met during her world travels as an international lawyer and scholar: We are all in search of our own truth, and we find it in different stages, roles, and places in our lives.
The Arya Esha brand honors and celebrates a person’s quest for truth and meaning. The collections include:
Galaxy: Designs that are evocative of the sun, moon, planets, and shooting stars, these jewels are inspired by the belief in limitlessness and endless possibilities.
Lava: Black hued metals juxtaposed with bright faceted and cabochon gemstones channel the bold, darkness of molten lava and the vibrant, awe-inspiring natural life that is nurtured and sustained upon it.
Paradigm: Inspired by the premise that femininity is as brave as it is graceful, this collection of white, champagne, and chocolate diamond jewels reflects the ethos of today’s modern woman.
