Shop For A Cause: Sukan Jewelry

Sukan is a Hindi word meaning "good wishes" which reflects Radhika Zaveri's aspirations to provide means to women in rural India to bring forth their art and gain independence through a positive path. Sukan's jewelry pieces are made in India yet represent global purpose of building a conscious society everywhere. Their designs are made thoughtfully and embody sustainability by using recycled glass.

You can meet Zaveri and shop the Sukan collection at a holiday trunk show at The Lotus Shop inside the Crow Collection of Asian Art Museum on Friday, December 5 and Saturday, December 6 (11am-5pm)

Zaveri believes that personal consciousness is a way of life and at Sukan, they are dedicated to deliver sustainable ways of creating high quality, caringly crafted jewelry. To Zaveri, sustainability is a way of thinking and living that embodies not only ways to care about the planet but also helps communities and their generations and finally our own individual choices.

The genesis of Sukan collections is a dynamic mix of themes, colors and materials that reflect everyday elegance with substance and panache. "The idea is that we empower ourselves and those around to define the type of world we want to live in." Sukan literally mean good wishes and is my mother's name. The inspiration comes from iconic styles that have been transformed to casual modern luxury.
