It’s no secret that L.A.. likes a little drama. Luckily, Arun Bohra’s spectacular jewelry is made for the spotlight. Bohra, an eighth-generation jeweler whose family first began crafting pieces for Indian royalty more than 170 years ago, skillfully arranges some of the rarest and most vibrant gems into innovative and refreshingly playful settings. In his by-appointment atelier in the heart of Beverly Hills, he sketches his designs before collaborating with his team of master artisans, who execute each one-of-a-kind commission in workshops in Rome, Jaipur, and Geneva. Drawing inspiration from contemporary art, women, art nouveau, and mythology, the statement-making concepts from Bohra’s brand Arunashi present a kaleidoscopic display of colossal sapphires, Colombian emeralds, Paraíba tourmalines, and rare conch pearls. To keep his large-scale designs light and wearable, he sets stones in a range of lightweight materials, such as carbon fiber, smooth hand-painted ceramic, and titanium. In keeping with L.A.’s fanciful ethos—and his own sense of humor—Bohra’s refined designs often intentionally introduce a touch of playful, organic imperfections: Black-gold flower petals unfurl with a slight wilt, and titanium butterfly wings are captured mid-flap.
