Anahita, born in Iran and raised in Europe and the United States, is influenced by the images and motifs in the art and architecture of ancient Persia as well as the many places she has lived and traveled. Based in New York City, she transitioned from architecture to jewelry by combining her skills, diverse personal experiences and heritage to create sculptural, fluid jewelry that differentiates her as a designer. Her architectural background, inspirations and influences all combine to create unique jewelry that is decisively modern, alluring and feminine. Lines, curves, silhouettes, color and light all play important roles in the creation of her line. Dedicated to maintaining high standards of environmental responsibility, Anahita uses only recycled gold and conflict-free gems from socially responsible mines. These efforts contribute to the exquisite, hand-crafted pieces that define her elegant and timeless collection.
