Glitterati: Tejani

Once a jewelry fanatic, always a jewelry fanatic. This rings so true for Tejani creator Urvi Prunier. The seasoned fashionphile held stints in sales and merchandising at fashion houses like Chanel, YSL, and Nicole Miller, but eventually returned to her true love. The name Tejani, derived from the designer’s family name, means “brightness” and “sparkle.” And that her pieces, made from semi-precious stones, do.

See an Indian flavor? All pieces are handcrafted by artisans in Mumbai, India. Stunning earrings, stacked bangles, and bib necklaces are all part of four Spring collections. Prices are reasonable: earrings begin at $95, bangles hover in the $200 range, necklaces are most expensive — I see nothing over $400. As well, Urvi has tapped into the bridal costume jewelry niche. If you're looking to be an exotic bride, or bridesmaid, look to Tejani.
