Born and raised in India, Ranjana brings Bombay to New York via Paris, the disparate influences of her life forming an aesthetic that combines hard and soft, dark and light, masculine and feminine, leather and tulle.
For years Ranjana Khan has applied her vast knowledge of embroideries to create instantly iconic pieces of jewelry and accessories. She has become one of the world’s greatest authorities on embellishments, sharing her unique insight and experience with renowned couturiers like Jean-Paul Gaultier, Alber Elbaz, and Alexander McQueen. Now, with the launch of her own collection, she speaks to an audience entirely her own.
Using her international travels and global fashion experience Ranjana tells a story that’s very much her own. She subverts the entire idea of what jewelry can and cannot be. She treats precious things in an almost cavalier way—using acid and flame to achieve a desired look. There are no rules or preconceptions to her work. She applies opposing elements in striking combinations that convey an emotion or tell a story.
Now you can find her pieces in major retailers such as Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Henri Bendel and in high-end multi-brand stores such as Intermix, Mimi’s of New Orleans, LIVE! on Sunset, Saks Jandel, as well as virtual presence through Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.com, Paire.US, and even her own website!
