Vidhi Jain, one of the co-founders of Le Soonar, embarked on this venture when she first moved to Denmark. Her mission was to both pay homage to the illustrious history of Indian craftsmanship by introducing it to Denmark and to celebrate her Indian heritage while weaving it seamlessly into Danish design. Vidhi's deep appreciation for beauty, particularly in the realm of jewelry, was nurtured by her mother. It's this influence that resonates throughout Le Soonar’s collections, with many pieces paying homage to the timeless classics worn by her mother and other Indian women who shaped her upbringing.Le Soonar, born in 2021 through the creative spirits of two incredible women of color, Vidhi Jain and Shivangi Jhalani, is a lively creation infused with elements from a deep-rooted Indian heritage. Vidhi initially set off on a career path in international development, fate had other plans. Her entrepreneurial spirits led her to join her partner and best friend Shivangi towards a delightful passion project - crafting engagement rings and jewelry for friends. Little did they know, this journey would reveal a significant gap in the jewelry market. People craved not just jewelry, but affordable pieces that embraced classic, exquisite designs while allowing their unique personalities to shine through. This revelation marked the birth of Le Soonar, a brand dedicated to fine jewelry where design and quality coexist harmoniously, echoing the wearer's distinctive style. Grounded in the timeless traditions of Indian jewelry and the allure of diamonds and precious gemstones, Le Soonar is a testament to their unbreakable connection with the diamond industry, a tradition that has woven through generations in their families. This journey is a celebration, not only of their heritage but also of their shared desire to share the beauty of Indian craftsmanship with the world.
Shivangi Jhalani, the other half of this creative partnership, is the driving force and co-founder of Le Soonar, a brand that reflects her lifelong love of jewelry and design. Having grown up in a family deeply entrenched in the diamond trade, she
has an intimate understanding of the industry from her father and brother, who supplied jewelry and diamonds to retailers worldwide. This family tradition, which spans generations, forged a deep connection to the diamond industry and laid the foundation for their shared journey into the world of jewellery design. Vidhi and Shivangi’s venture into the world of jewellery is a heartfelt tribute to India's age-old traditions and the artistry that runs in their veins. Le Soonar is a testament of their shared passion for jewelry and design. Their journey commenced with crafting engagement rings for friends, setting the stage for a brand that would not only pay tribute to their family's diamond legacy but also usher in a new era of personalized jewelry experiences. The name "Le Soonar," which translates to "The Jeweller," encapsulates their mission: to offer a unique and personalized jewelry experience, inviting everyone to not only wear their creations but to genuinely feel the artistry, history and dedication infused into each piece.
