The Founder | Simran Gill
Simran’s connection to gold jewelry begins with her grandmother, Bibi Ji. When Simran was a child she would wait for Bibi Ji to come back from India every year and sit on the floor, at the edge of the suitcase, eyeing all the beautiful fabrics, sweets, and jewelry Bibi would pull out with such love and warmth. One particular year Bibi Ji brought back a gold jewelry set for Simran and it symbolized her eternal connection to her grandmother. Losing Bibi Ji in 2002 when Simran was only six years old, their connection never severed and Bibi’s maternal energy became a guiding force to everything Simran did in her life. Although the gold jewelry set was stolen a few years later, it became the sole inspiration for the beginning of Sofine Jewelry.
During her studies, she took a trip to the gold market of Dubai with her mother and sister, Isha. While wandering the gold markets in the Dubai heat, Simran found a similar jewelry set gifted to her from her Bibi Ji which sparked an answer to her purpose in this life: to create gold jewelry that can connect stories, people, and energy forever. This is how Sofine begins.
