Sorab and Roshi

The New Trendsetting Duo in Exclusive Jewelry Design

Sorab and Roshi isn’t your typical luxury jewelry company. Located in the heart of Greenwich, its historical, quirky storefront reflects the beauty and uniqueness of its treasures. For over 20 years, husband and wife duo, Sorab Bouzarjomehri and Roshi Ameri, have perfected the art of truly original hand- crafted jewelry.

Sole designer, Sorab Bouzarjomehri never thought his BS in Civil Engineering and MS in Industrial Engineering and Management would lead him on a path toward jewelry design. He began his journey in the early 1980’s with Monarch, a costume jewelry line. After experiencing success with the line, Sorab and his wife Roshi began working privately with clients in his studio. After developing a cult-following and corresponding demand, in 1988, the artist and his wife opened their first storefront in Yellow Monkey Village, Cross River, New York in 2003.

While Roshi sees to the everyday demands of the business, Sorab concentrates on the creative side. He handcrafts each and every piece of jewelry, incorporating principles of creativity, quality, and individuality.  Sorab is a true artist, using quality gems and precious metals to create one-of-a-kind pieces, the like of which you will not find anywhere else.

“I look at jewelry as art - this is my canvas. I paint with precious metals and gold,” said Sorab.

Sorab and Roshi’s clients are not your everyday suburban man or woman. These are clients who don’t the follow trends, they set them. It takes confidence to wear these bold designs.

“My clients are very self-assured and confident about their style,” said Sorab. Ladies don’t be shy, “every woman can wear big jewelry and once they do they will never want to go back,” says Roshi.

Best known for his signature pin designs, Sorab collaborates with clients to create personalized pieces. You could say that Sorab and his clients are kindred spirits.

Drawing from political, social, and personal influences, Sorab creates a collection of 50 to 80 pieces a year. Ranging from show-stopping signature pins to beaded, everyday necklaces, every piece tells a story and shines on its own. Pulling influence from the economic downturn, Sorab created a circular gold pin with a diamond encrusted dollar sign melting in the center. Another original design consists of an eagle’s head holding an olive branch lined with diamonds and sapphires.

I had the pleasure of sitting down with the talented duo to talk about what they love most. “To start with nothing other than a couple of stones and be able to create something that people admire is my greatest joy,” Sorab explains. Not only were the couple fun and enthusiastic, but genuine passion and love for their craft and their clients shined through.

Sorab and Roshi’s jewelry are not just accessories; they are pieces of wearable art and conversational pieces combined. If you don’t want to walk into a cocktail party to find yourself wearing the same necklace and tennis bracelet as your girlfriend, I would suggest going to see these experts in unique design
