Coomi gives new meaning to the term renaissance women. Over the past two decades, her creativity and inherent artistic nature have driven her careers as a textile designer, architect, and landscape designer and now fuels her jewelry collection, launched under her own label in 2002.
From the very early days of her jewelry designing career, Coomi travelled the world, seeking out and studying the histories of the finest and rarest antiquities for use in her one-of-a-kind jewelry designs. From arrowheads to coins to ancient Roman artifacts, Coomi researched each of the items’ back stories and treated every find with the respect and care they deserved. Knowing that Coomi could give her collectors a piece of history while also giving them a piece of herself in the process is the part of Coomi’s work that feeds her soul and connects her worlds, both past and present.
