New Year. New Generation.
Born in New York City, on New Year’s Day in 1991, Abeer Jain is the Founder and Creative Director of the A. Jain brand. A product of three generations of gemstone manufacturers, Abeer is instilled with the same taste for elegance and timeless design, appreciation for the colors and beauty of fine quality natural gemstones, and a taste for creativity as the generations of his past.
Learning the Trade of the Craft.
After completing his Undergraduate and Gemological Education, Abeer was determined to expand the scope of his family’s gemstone manufacturing business, while maintaining his persistence for individuality, the ethos of creative elegance, maintaining a high regard for exceptional quality in fine jewelry, and the desire to create his own identity in the fine jewelry industry.
With a strong foundation in the luxury jewelry industry and a well honed understanding of gemstones, Abeer immersed himself about learning the trade and craft of diamonds and jewelry manufacturing. Moving to Boston, Massachusetts, he underwent an arduous apprenticeship as a bench jeweler, training in the process of creating high-quality, fine, handcrafted jewelry pieces.
As an apprentice for many years, Abeer learned the time honored art and craft of creating jewelry from the first sketch to the final product. Becoming proficient in the intricate and detail-oriented “lost-wax” process–in addition to wax sculpting and molding, to casting jewelry in silver, gold and platinum, soldering, stone setting and finally polishing–Abeer finally had a true understanding of the meaning of “fine jewelry.”
Towards the end of his apprenticeship, Abeer was reflecting about the past and what made him fall in love with fine luxury jewelry. He thought about where he came from, and the opportunity and experiences that gemstones had given him…
Reminiscing about his experiences with his family business of sourcing, creating and manufacturing, and finally supplying millions of natural, fine quality gemstones for many of the world’s largest and most reputable luxury jewelry brands, Abeer wanted to create something different, something to call his own, something that would embody all the emotions that jewelry captures: love, passion, timelessness, individual expression, quality, and value.
He wanted to create a colored stone cut that would be different from the mainstream rounds, ovals, and cushions that he saw in use among almost all of the other luxury fine jewelry brands.
Wanting to be different, embrace individuality, create his own path in luxury jewelry, and diversify himself from the largest jewelry luxury brands in the market, Abeer thought deeply. At that instant, he remembered an image he had seen, a picture that ignited the idea which would become the trademark for A. Jain.
“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
2013: A Trademark Year.
It was a picture of a diamond cut into the shape of a duck which Abeer remembered seeing in his course books at the Gemological Institute of America, and which would become the motif of the A. Jain brand. Inspired by these reflections, Abeer was poised to create a whole new style of high quality gemstone and diamond jewelry with his own signature stone cut, Eros Eterno. What had started as an idea in New York was growing into an innovative brand. Thus the A. Jain line was born.
A. Jain: The Brand.
Eros meaning the Greek god of love and Eterno meaning eternal and everlasting in Italian, Eros Eterno is a product of this reflection and Abeer’s connection to a long and ongoing jewelry tradition. His trademark, iconic motif of unfading flames, speaks to the notion of continuity and brilliance forever; the shapes of the gemstones themselves embody the promise of love and beauty throughout eternity with the sparkle of the stones, inspired by the moments in time and in life that take your breath away. And finally, the colors are the embodiment of everyone’s individual and timeless beauty. Like people everywhere, gems and diamonds are unique in their own special way; ready to be admired and adorned for their individuality, power, and personality, symbolizing an ode to the style-makers of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
Maintaining the Roots: American Quality, International Appeal.
The A. Jain product line has a piece for everyone. Each item is uniquely crafted to embellish the style and personality of the wearer. From sterling silver and gold pieces to superior quality gemstones and diamonds, everyone can find a piece expressive of themselves or for those they cherish and adore. For Abeer, gemstones and diamonds allude back to something classic and timeless. The symbolism of human emotion. The ornate and seemingly endless patterns of classic European art and architecture. And the promise of love everlasting.
Abeer, like his family before him, is committed to creating superior quality jewelry using the finest materials—pieces that, like true love itself, are meant to last a lifetime. Each A. Jain piece is handcrafted by extremely talented artisans in the United States with ethically sourced, all natural gemstones and diamonds from around the world.
Diamonds and gemstones used in the A. Jain line have been sourced personally by Abeer, and are GIA graded and certified. Diamonds are of selection VVS to VS clarity and D to G color grades. Gemstones used in all A. Jain pieces have all been personally sourced and manufactured by the A. Jain family’s manufacturing business ensuring the highest quality of colored stones used while maintaining ethical and sustainable business practices. Each piece has been hand carved and cut to maximize the brilliance of the stone from color, clarity, cut, and polish. All the metals of the pieces in the A. Jain product line consist of either Sterling .925 Silver, 18K and 14K gold, or 999 Platinum to 950 Platinum.
