It takes two
Banglez founders Malinda and Hardip Chohan are lifelong partners: highschool sweethearts who are now married and blessed with two amazing children.
In 2006, the inspiration behind Banglez pre-dated Malinda's very own bridal experience. Yet, she was still well enough acquainted with the fact that there were minimal accessory options available to South Asian brides at the time. Passionate about the art of make-up and jewelry throughout her life, Malinda was inspired to design a brand of bridal jewelry that would be as accessible as it was customizable. Not quite knowing where to begin on this new journey of theirs, the couple decided to take their talents and foraging skills to India, travelling around the country to places like Delhi, Mumbai, Punjab and Rajasthan in search of raw materials, manufacturers and suppliers with whom they could work.
The team in India began to build, and shipments began to arrive from India to Toronto. Meanwhile, Hardip's involvement in the repair and swapping of stones to better accommodate their clients' needs allowed him to grow more comfortable and confident working with jewelry. He soon learned how to use various stones to create and manipulate new patterns and styles. Their Blossoming into jewelry designers, (instead of merely being importers of it) marked an unexpected and exciting turn for the company. The Banglez approach evolved into combining loose stones and diverse materials with artisanal methods to hand-craft their collections entirely in-house.
Fast forward to the present day, where Malinda guides the creative direction with her discerning eye for design. At the same time, Hardip's attention to beautifully detailed craftsmanship and service ensures every customer finds the perfect jewelry piece. Their business philosophy and signature style embodies an entirely imaginative, modern and bold approach. Together with the rest of the team, they seek to recreate enduring cultural accessories by weaving old ways with new. Banglez as well as their new brand Tenasãti, accomplishes this meaningfully by infusing their personalities, timely, socially-conscious trends into their jewelry-wearers' collective and customized experience.
I had been searching for the perfect purple for a photo shoot for my 50th birthday next month. The AMETHYST GIFT SET is exactly what I was looking for and more. I most definitely will shop again for "just because" jewelry!!
Very pleased with my purchase. Will be able to wear these earrings with so many outfits. Customer service was also excellent.
I loved the earrings, bangles and the head piece. This was the not the time I ordered and would again too. Thank for you great service.
I came across Banglez on Instagram been following them for a while so I decided to two purchases : Surprise box and Build your own box.
The colors I choose specifically was to match with some of my Indian jewelry sets and they matched perfectly!!
I love Banglez the colors are vibrant as well as great quality, will definitely be ordering from them in the future. Also living in Florida it’s hard to find just simple bangles so happy I found Banglez!!
Well made beautiful complimentary pieces. I love all of the love and beauty that is created by Banglez. I love to treat myself with their amazing jewellery ! Would not go elsewhere !
Love the colour scheme! Such a nice selection for mixing and matching!
The different colours and textures of the bangles are so pretty! Can't wait to mix and match them.
The product was of superior quality, value for money and the customer service was very good, the lady, really kept me updated on everything possible and got my parcel on my desire date!
Loved the quality and the service. This was my second purchase, I think I have found my desi jewelry store!! The Jasleen headpiece with the Ilaria earrings were beautiful and matched perfectly. I got many compliments on it, that too for a great price. When I had originally ordered, I picked curb side pick up however completely overlooked that I was supposed to make an appointment to pick up. When I arrived without calling in the location was closed obviously, but when I called, the owners were able to arrive in a very prompt manner. I truly appreciated it, made me feel valued as a customer.
