“Right from the beginning, I knew that I was not born to do a 9 to 5 job. I always wanted to start something of my own. As I am an ardent admirer of nature and jewellery, I thought of doing something with it. After my schooling, this desire of doing something by mixing beauties of nature and jewellery further intensified.
So, I decided to learn the art of jewellery designing and crafting by joining the well known Gemology Institute of America. The skills and knowledge I assimilated from the design school infused vividly with my dreams and vision which motivated me to start my own venture of luxurious jewellery by the name “Dillano“.
I recall that when i’d shared my dream to become an entrepreneur, i was frowned upon and was asked “to think twice”. Being a woman, it was not easy to attempt to start my own business. But soon it became a turning point in my life that has taken me to heights that were unimaginable by my old self.
I have been fortunate to get such an amazing national and international clientele for Dillano. It is overwhelming to see that my zeal and years of hard work has made Dillano a known name in the jewellery industry today. Even celebrities have started admiring and adorning our jewellery now which we believe is a great achievement for us. But I feel that we still have a long way to go. There is a lot that has to be achieved.
And everything that has happened in between, every incident has changed me into a better person. Going through the criticism, when i was rewarded with my 1st award from World Gold Council, it had a deep positive impact on me. It was a time when I started receiving all the encouragement.
Amidst all, the most beautiful thing that i realize today is that, it was worth fighting for my dreams and taking risks to achieve it.”
