Kaushik Soni was born in Dubai and has lived in the Emirate his entire life.
He is a member of one of the city's most respected and established jewellery families, and has a lifelong understanding and appreciation of gemstones, diamonds and exceptional jewellery.
Kaushik's father, Mr. Narottam Soni, first came to Dubai in 1964. He started his jewellery career as an artisan, manufacturing jewellery in the studios of the city's Gold Souk. A short time later, he progressed his career by establishing a small chain of retail stores. The family business, to this day, is a success. It spans three generations and members of the Soni family successfully design, produce and trade gems and jewellery across the city and beyond.
"I grew up in these stores, looking and playing with diamonds and jewellery. My love and understanding of beautifully crafted precious things started from a very early age."
Once Kaushik completed his Dubai-based primary and secondary education he travelled internationally, completing an Information Sciences and Technology and Business Administration degree in Drexel University, Philadelphia. After graduating with honours (Magna Cum Laude), he then attended the world-renowned Gemological Institute of America (GIA) in New York where he became a Diamond Graduate.
On his return to Dubai in 1997, Kaushik joined the family business and has been intricately involved ever since. In 2003, Kaushik founded his own retail enterprise, TEJORI. What started with one small store in January 2004 in the Gold & Diamond Park, has now grown to eight stores across Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
"For me, learning and training is a lifelong project. I have had the opportunity to take courses from all the top institutes in the diamond industry - GIA, HRD, and IGI. I have since furthered my formal knowledge by studying Pearl and Colour Stone grading with some of the world's leading experts and taken master classes in jewellery design and manufacture. This education gives me knowledge and inspiration which in turn greatly enhances TEJORI's quality proposition and my team's service to our clients."
