Kaali Designs is named in honor of the Hindu Goddess Kali, who is a manifestation of the Divine Mother. She is a fierce and powerful warrior. The changeable moods of the Indian Ocean provide the influence for Anit’s designs. From its calm, reflective waters to its tempestuous, dark surges, the ocean possesses strength, beauty, and untapped potential — a compelling force for Anit’s creativity. His three unique collections show how he transforms fine metals and gems into wearable art — each piece a delight for those who appreciate exquisite craftsmanship and refined style.

Anit Dodhia grew up in a culturally rich Indian community in Mombasa, a coastal town in Kenya. At an early age, Anit spent time at the family’s jewelry gallery where he discovered his interest in gems, a passion that has propelled his career for the past twenty years.

Now based in San Diego and a GIA Graduate Gemologist, Anit shares his skills as a jewelry designer with his new venture, Kaali Designs. His handmade jewelry line carries forth the perfect fusion of art and family tradition. He lives with his wife, Rebecca, and their two young children, Mia and Rien, who inspire his work.
