Priyanka Murthy is the founder and chief designer for Arya Esha. She has been designing jewellery for decades, even throughout her notable career in law and political science. While participating in human rights law missions in Africa, and evaluating complex political problems as a Fulbright Scholar in Europe, Priyanka learned that she is most effective when she lets her heart drive her and her mind direct her.
“At the intersection of the heart and mind lies that which is most meaningful.”
Priyanka’s designs reflect the meaning she finds when she lets her heart do the talking and her mind do the walking. Priyanka received formal training in jewellery and gemstones from the GIA. Priyanka also holds a law degree and an undergraduate degree from Northwestern University and completed Masters Studies as a Fulbright Scholar from Copenhagen University, Denmark. She is a member of the Women’s Jewellery Association, the Texas Jewellers Association, and the Cultured Pearl Association.
Arya Esha, pronounced Are-ya Ee-shah, means Goddess of Truth in the ancient North Indian language Sanskrit. The inspiration for the name came from a trait Priyanka noticed in almost every person she met during her world travels as an international lawyer and scholar: We are all in search of our own truth, and we find it in different stages, roles, and places in our lives. Arya Esha honors and celebrates a person’s quest for truth and meaning.
The Arya Esha line is currently available online and at retailers in Florida, Texas, Illinois, Hawaii, and Canada.
