Our Story

The roots of Anju Jewelry began in 1933 when India Natives Anju & Gaurav Agarwal invested in their future and moved to America. While Gaurav spent his days working on his Ph.D, Anju began designing and making jewelry to sell at local craft fairs. As a native of India living in Atlanta, Georgia, she drew inspiration from India’s rich cultural heritage. As jewelry sales began to take off, Gaurav quit his job so he could focus all of his attention on growing Anju’s jewelry business.
On a trip back home they met a talented, but struggling group of artisans that could not keep consistent work. It was then, that Anju & Gaurav decided to partner with this artisan group and move manufacturing back home to India where they knew they could provide these artisans with consistent work. We are happy to say that more than 9 years later we are still working with this very same artisan group and over the years their quality of life has improved significantly.

Anju & Gaurav have partnered with other artisan communities in need of steady jobs meaning each piece of jewelry is still made by hand by our artisans in India and hand-packed with care in our Atlanta warehouse.
