Fourseven is a woman-owned jewellery brand that manufactures unique silver jewellery pieces with contemporary designs inspired and rooted in tradition. As Rebekkah Kumar, the American Founder & CEO of Fourseven states:

The lack in silver jewellery options fit for the modern Indian woman pushed Rebekkah to start Fourseven along with a team of talented women jewelry designers who try to use upcycled, recycled and eco-friendly products wherever possible in the supply chain.
Fourseven is an innovative, female-owned fashion jewelry brand that strive to make women happier and more confident while at the same time advancing opportunities for Indian craftspersons and giving support to those in need.
