Kora Kora is an innovative DTC demi-fine jewelry brand specially curated for Gen-Z and Millenials, dedicated to offering fine-jewelry for the fraction of the cost of traditional fine jewelry.
Kora Kora was founded in 2020, by Manav Golecha and Lais Oliveira, entrepreneurs from India and Brazil. The company began as an experimental line of jewelry, inspired by pop culture, nature, and modern art while capturing a California aesthetic.
Every accessory we make is timeless, genderless, and open for interpretation.
Our first collection was designed by the company’s head designer, Queenie, whose work has been featured in Vogue, InStyle, Harper’s Bazaar, Nylon, Paper Magazine, Wonderland, Cosmopolitan, Heroine, King Kong, Schön, etc. Before Kora Kora, she has worked for Marc Jacobs, Thom Browne, Oscar De la Renta, and Jeremy Scott.
Queenie’s style is inspired by her imaginary fantasy world. She balances her design and her imagination between fake and surreal, romantic and gothic, beautiful and horrific. She hopes that people can feel the beauty and happiness through her designs. Queenie has studied fashion at China Central Academy of Fine Arts, she continued to explore fashion and jewelry design at Glasgow School of Art in Scotland and Parsons MFA Fashion Design in New York.
