«Growing up in India, in a traditional Jain Palanpuri community, spirituality and sustainability is a part of my DNA and this is what I infused in to brand Harakh. While adhering to a mindful and spiritual lifestyle has always been a way of life for me. As a brand, we strongly believe that small efforts go a long way and have taken steps at our atelier and offices to follow a sustainable approach. We were the very first factory in India certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council’s stringent 2013 Code of Practices and since then have taken it upon ourselves to reduce waste, recycle more and replenish natural resources wherever possible. We are a Fairmined gold licensee brand, and We work closely with our supply chain to reduce overall carbon footprint. Sustainably sourced real and rare diamonds: as far as possible, our diamonds can be traced back to Russian, Australian, Canadian and Botswana mines. The packaging? Recyclable and sustainable too, of course. And finally, we encourage skill development and social entrepreneurship by supporting local artisans to use their special techniques in our jewelry. When I founded the brand in 2017, my only desire was to make beautiful, joyful jewelry designs without compromising my values. After all, the name Harakh in my native language means exactly that – “a deep sense of joy and happiness,” a philosophy which is cemented in the simple “tear of joy” logo which is stamped on every piece of haute joaillerie. I cannot put into words the tremendous honor it is to win the FGI Rising Star and to also be nominated for the first-ever Sustainability Award. For me and my dedicated team, this recognition reaffirms our vision that ethical craft and exquisite luxury design can and should go hand in hand.»
