I believe freedom is life’s greatest luxury. The freedom to live the life we imagined—this is what inspires me and makes me feel alive. And it is through that inspiration that we discover our highest self.
To me, having the privilege and opportunity to create fine jewelry—and build a thriving business from it—is an ultimate freedom, and one that is not readily available to all.
It’s why I have poured so much time, energy and money into START, which is Bhansali’s philanthropic organization. At START, we partner with nonprofits to launch programs that cultivate creativity and commerce for budding entrepreneurs.
Specifically, START is a unique education initiative that helps underserved students by providing the tools and guidance needed to develop their career dreams and flourish in today’s business world. From product design and marketing, to financial literacy and ethical practices, these young students are taught a range of “real world” professional skills. As they develop and launch their products, they are taught and mentored by creatives and industry leaders.
As a part of every sale goes to fund START, know that when you choose Bhansali, you are also choosing to support a cause that is so incredibly important to young people today, and to me. I am personally grateful to all who support us in this effort.
