Archana Jain is the mother of an ever smiling 18-year-old girl and a non-demanding 14-year-old boy.
Her family back in India has been in the gold and diamond jewellery business for more than a century. Inspired by seeing her late dad and his team working in this field, her creative mind wanted to bring a range of personally designed, one of a kind, and affordable jewellery to the world. Hence, Arko was born in September 2015 which coincidentally has the initials of her and her husband’s name and she jokingly calls it her third baby.
As the name “Arko” explains itself, each of their collection is inspired by nature. Arko introduces new collections every few months, some of which are the “Glittery Stars”, the ”Rocky Mars”, and the ”Mysterious Ocean” collection.
Arko recently launched a unique “wearable art” collection which is the first of its kind in the field of jewellery. Each piece in this limited edition jewellery is a part of a “Forest” series canvas painting set in 92.5 silver.
Arko has created a niche market with its loyal clientele not only in Singapore but in Indonesia, America, and India as well. Starting its journey with exhibiting at a small shared table at a prestigious Indian exhibition in Singapore, Arko has since participated in more than a dozen well known exhibitions in the last year and has been a recommended brand by these exhibitors.
Arko has also been a jewellery sponsor for fashion shows where models were seen flaunting pieces with grace and glamour. Arko took another step forward when they started with the customisation of diamond and gold jewellery. With an order of a solitaire diamond ring, a ruby diamond necklace and a few more pieces in gold and stones, Arko is looking forward to expanding their business in this area.
