Born and raised in Mumbai, India, Ranjana Khan started her career in fashion as an international model. Immersed in a culture that embraces vibrant colors and unique textures, Khan drew inspiration from the detailed hand embroidery of artisans whose skills have been passed down and perfected generationally over centuries.
In the 1990s she started collaborating with European designers by creating embroidery concepts for Lanvin, Balenciaga, Gaultier Couture, McQueen, Valentino, and Armani Prive, among others.
After 30 years in the business, she launched her jewelry brand in 2008. Ranjana Khan’s jewelry uses materials such as sea shells, beetle wings, and feathers to craft wildly unique statement earrings worn by the likes of Beyonce, Michelle Obama, and Cardi B.
