The work of the Texas based brother and sister design duo Ila Draksharam and Vikas, ila&i creates elegant jewelry made for everyday use. Drawing on its Indian heritage for inspiration, the label seamlessly works together artistic traditions of the east with modern western design. Using recycled and reclaimed metals to create its unique and original designs, the pieces are then embellished with precious gemstones and diamonds, creating a subtle form of luxury and sophistication. Its selection of necklaces includes emerald pendants suspended from delicate gold chains, diamond lockets and turquoise-encrusted chokers. Intricate and refined, these are investment pieces.
