Jyoti Kapoor has been living and designing out of New York since 2009. Her foray into design started with reworking of her grandmother’s heirloom. She fashioned an antique bracelet into a magnificent neckpiece. As a woman of South Asian descent, her design sensibilities always hearken back to India, but with reflect a fresh modern New York flair. Trained at New York City’s famed Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), she has always aimed to create “wearable art” that can be passed on for generations.

She gets her inspiration first from the gems. She saw the topaz stones that sit on her “Imperia” necklace at one of the biggest gem and jewelry fairs in Hong Kong. Her “Esmerita” earrings are topped with stones found on a recent trip to Jaipur. Her jewellery has been a part of prestigious events such as New York Fashion Week Accessory Show, Bridal Shows in New York, New Jersey, Houston, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Jyoti’s jewellery has been worn on the red carpet by Sakina Jaffrey of the Netflix original series “HOUSE OF CARDS” at the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards in LA, as well as prominent fashionistas in India and New York such as Warda Nadiadwala, Lucky Morani, Krishika Lulla and Joya Dass. Today, she proudly straddles four identities – that of a New Yorker, an Indian woman, a working woman and a socialite. She creates her collections tailored to that kind of woman.
