The Founder | Simran Gill
Simran’s connection to gold jewelry begins with her grandmother, Bibi Ji. 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, their connection never severed and Bibi’s maternal energy became a guiding force to everything Simran did in her life. Although the jewelry set was stolen a few years later, it became the sole inspiration for the beginning of Sofine Jewelry.
During her studies in fashion marketing, 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 design gold jewelry that can connect stories, people, and energy forever. With her direction set, Simran focused and educated herself on all things jewelry by taking jewelry making classes, learning metal smith techniques, and learning how to convey her sketches into three-dimensional design. This is how Sofine begins.
