Vinay Khemani began his career in the jewelry industry at the age of sixteen, he envisioned a jewellery brand that would not only showcase the finest materials and impeccable craftsmanship but also tell a story of devotion and shared dreams. He started working on the stunning island of St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands and completed his studies to become a GIA Graduate Gemologist by the age of twenty. Alongside working he also attended school to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management. He worked in Alaska during the summer cruise ship season in his early career. This is where his love for Southeast Alaska's natural beauty began. Life surprised him again and he crossed paths with a charming woman named Sapna and found his truest love and soon they tied the knot. A testament to their enduring love and a shared vision of redefining luxury in the world of exquisite jewellery, they moved to Alaska and founded “Monarch Jewels” by opening their first store in Ketchikan in 2016.
It was just the beginning of the journey they were about to go on and with utmost dedication and diligence soon they launched more stores across Alaska in Ketchikan, Skagway & Juneau. As of today, they are happy to serve their clients amongst all their five stores. The dream Vinay Khemani once saw has turned into a reality and now Monarch Jewels is delighted to serve the tourists visiting Alaska as well the locals in the community. As you explore the world of Monarch Jewels, you shall witness a love story translated into fine jewelry, rare gemstones and timeless designs. We welcome you to a realm where luxury is infused with the warmth of a shared journey, and each piece tells a story that goes beyond aesthetics, it tells the story of Vinay and Sapna’s enduring love and consistent hard work that brought Monarch Jewels to life. Together with our loyal patrons, we look forward to a future where Monarch Jewels continues to redefine luxury by opening in more locations and becoming a legacy which transcends love to the generations to come.
