Rosena Sammi’s jewelry combines her passion for the craft of jewelry design and her heritage — the result is striking jewelry reminiscent of the Royal Courts of India.

The Sri Lanka native’s jewelry is the kind you’ll cherish for a lifetime, so if you can afford to splurge a little (her Sanskrit necklaces are also available in sterling silver) put one of her pieces on your Christmas list.  I cherish my “Om Shanti” necklace ($139 gold vermeil, $110 sterling silver), which means “a prayer for peace” in Sanskrit.
