Amrapali was founded by Rajesh Ajmera and Rajiv Arora, two friends and history majors who were enraptured by the story of the legendary courtesan Amrapali, and decided to name their new brand after her. They travelled across the country meeting local craftsmen and closely observing the designs and motifs in the architecture, jewelry and art they encountered. Their journey inspired them to preserve the rich legacies of India, a journey that continues with Amrapali jewelry and Tribe by Amrapali.
Over the years Amrapali silver has become the strong point of the brand, with many famous faces having sported Amrapali earrings and Amrapali jhumkas over the years. The brand sells a wide range of products such as earrings, necklaces, bracelets, ear cuffs, maang tikkas, arm bands, rings, anklets, etc. Apart from their many stores, you can now shop Amrapali online on their website as well as on Nykaa Fashion.
During the time of Lord Buddha there lived a legendary courtesan, believed to be the most beautiful woman in the whole world. She was called Amrapali. Rajesh Ajmera and Rajiv Arora, the founders of Tribe by Amrapali, travelled extensively to the remotest interiors of India, in search of unique and magnificent pieces of tribal jewellery, immersing themselves in the cultural delights, which contributes today to their vast expertise in the field that led them to create the infamous line of Amrapali tribal jewellery. Amrapali was founded in 1978, and is today a renowned luxury jewellery brand.
