               No company unveils the designer behind the jewelry. He is under eclipse as in

               the case of a sculptor behind the stone who carves it into an idol.
               Subhash Nair is one among those who are behind the drape – a designer at the
               famous  Kothari’s  Fine  Jewels  in  Mumbai.  An  innate  of  Thalayolaparambu  in
               Kerala, a southern state in India. Since 1988, he is with them artifacting adorable
               jewelry to the celebrities in the country.
               With  the  skill  of  painting  he  entered  the  jewelry  design  arena  at  a  young  age.
               Captivatingly it was an advertisement appeared in a newspaper altered his life.
               The interview was for a designer at Kothari’s Fine Jewels. Though rookie in the
               specific field, his talent and creative innovativeness unbolted the door to jewelry
               design.  Though Inclined to Mughal jewel design, he imprinted his own flair with
               inimitable  dazzling  sketches.  He  is  also  fond  of  the  Art-Deco  style,  which  has
               been popular in France since the 1930s. He created unique designs combining
               Mughal painting and Art-Deco art which fetched him applause.  Each jewelry has
               to be unlike and each one has to be prudently designed to evade repetition, says
               Subhash Nair
