About OUR Founder

Founder and creative director, Siddarth Shahani is a second-generation jeweler with a fascination with gemstones. Growing up, he was fascinated by the concept of jewellery and quickly fell in love with the trade working in the family business in Qatar. His affinity towards jewellery led him to pursue courses at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) in Florence and New York. He returned to Qatar, as Graduate Gemologist and Graduate in Jewellery Design and spent the next decade at one of the leading retail businesses, Amiri Gems, immersed in all facets of the business. During this time, he also developed close relationships to many high-profile clients who sought his refined curations and was frequently commissioned to design bespoke sets and pieces. Siddarth launched Letalis Jewellery Limited in 2018.
