Rai: by Raihana

Nothing gives Cinched more pride than updates on the creative genius of the individuals we have been honored to feature in Stylefiles. Raihana, an old friend and style mentor, has launched her jewelry design website,  Rai by Raihana

Raihana creates one-of-a-kind, hand crafted pieces of jewelry. Her passion for art and her curious personality define her style of design.

Raihana's jewelry is fabricated using rare and highly-desired materials, including precious and semi-precious gemstones, gold and diamond charms, Tahitian pearls, turquoise beads, blood red coral, and citrine. Her pieces are frequently contrasted with natural and rare elements, such as onyx and sandalwood. Each piece incorporates ideas from her travels across the world, her love of different cultures, her strong sense of fashion, and her diverse taste in music. More importantly, each piece of jewelry carries its own special meaning.

From the islands of Bali, the market streets of Cairo, and the high plains of Texas, Rai by Raihana exemplifies vivid spirit and eccentric design (Rai by Raihana).
