Biography:

Flora Bhattachary is a jeweller with a passion for hidden histories and stories. Drawing on family links with India and a passion for history, Flora offers an exotic world of British luxury infused with Indian glamour. Uniting East and West, Flora draws on a love of rich pattern, opulent colour and hand carving for her designs. Inspired by her ancestor’s travels for the East India Company, Flora evokes ancient mythology, Hindu Goddesses and tales of feminine mystique, power and passion. She is “devoted to telling a story not in words or paint on canvas, but in gold and precious stone” (Maria Doulton, The Jewellery Editor). Celebrating women, Flora's design balances femininity and strength and often features an inner symbolism to empower and embolden the wearer.
