Our Story

How we started and why we make jewellery.

Dori is a Dubai-based contemporary jewellery brand founded by Bhavya Airan in 2016. Meaning “to bring together” in Hindi, Dori takes inspiration from its name and fuses heritage with modern design to create bespoke jewellery.

An ode to love for tradition, Dori aspires to create a fair platform for artisans in India to express and honour their craft. Using old school techniques that have been passed down from many generations, each Dori piece is lovingly handmade using quality natural stones and hypoallergenic metals.

Dori is stocked at some of the Middle East’s most prestigious retailers such as Signature Studio, Tryano and Urbanist.

By Women, For Women

At the heart of our brand is inclusivity.

Made for women by women, every collection begins and ends with you — the customer. From everyday jewellery to bold statement pieces, we promise to craft a Dori piece for every woman of all backgrounds or culture.

Our Commitment

All of our collections are made with ethically sourced natural stones and hypoallergenic metals.

From brass, silver to gold plated hardware, we use only pure metals for our jewellery to provide long-lasting wear and comfort for our customers. Our raw natural stones are sourced ethically and sustainably from countries such as India, Sri Lanka and Madagascar.

We do our best to work in a closed loop system, where we repurpose materials from unsold pieces in making our new collections.

The Founder

Driven by her love for fashion, Bhavya Airan worked in the Middle East fashion retail industry for over thirteen years. From leading the marketing department of Splash (Landmark Group) to the marketing team of Al Ghurair’s retail brands such as Springfield and The Face Shop, Bhavya took a leap of faith and followed her dream.

Inspired by her love for travel and nature, Bhavya launched Dori out of her passion for creating beautiful things. From vintage memorabilia to intricate tattoos, she combines her penchant for culture with the design philosophy of wabi-sabi to create timeless pieces of jewellery.

Apart from instilling beauty and confidence, Bhavya hopes for her customers to feel a connection with her pieces, and hopefully pass them on as heirlooms for the next generation.
