Kasuri Gem Designs began in 2009 in the Galle area of south western Sri Lanka after a fortuitous meeting between jewellery designer Monica Bodenham and one of the finest local goldsmiths, Jinapriya Ratnayake. He is from of a long line of jewellers and his father, now 80 years old, is a master at his craft.
The name ‘Kasuri’ is the name of one of Jinapriya’s daughters and is a Sinhala word for ‘gold’. It also refers to our love and extensive use of golden yellow sapphires and gem quality citrine in our collections.
It is our aim to produce exquisite collections and bespoke pieces to a high standard at attractive prices. Each nature-inspired piece is unique and skillfully hand crafted in Sri Lanka.
Using 22 and 18 carat gold and sterling silver with carefully selected precious and semi-precious stones, it is our aim to make high-end jewellery that not only looks stunning but also evokes our love and deep respect for our beautiful planet and the spirit world.
