I can never get enough of Waris Ahluwalia, I have a total crush on him. 1. Because he wears a turban everyday... and 2. He designs some amazing jewelery that I WILL someday own!!! Yeah! That awesome bracelet below... how gorgeous is that? $8,950 worth of gorgeous!

Waris has tried various professions (advertising, non-profit work, restaurant operations, he even attempted to make a music magazine) before he hired a guy in New York to make some jewelry for him. He then wore some of the rings into Maxfield’s in LA where the owner spotted them, promptly placed an order, and House of Waris was born. Fast forward a few years, he’s now also an actor (he’s been in two Wes Anderson films), his jewelry is sold at many prestigious stores including Barneys and Colette, and he’s up for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award. The birds featured in this year’s collection were inspired by the wallpaper in room 503 of Paris’ Hotel Raphael. I love one of his quotes: “Follow your heart…If you are not willing to take any risks nothing is going to happen.” <- taken from Life Content
