A deep lifelong admiration for the beauty of jewels led our founder “Aashna Dalmia” down the path of discovery and after studying the intricacies and history of design for two years, she began converting her passion into ideas. Finding the right name for the venture was challenging. However, after much deliberation “dyu”was chosen as the name that would encapsulate the brand’s value as its original Sanskrit translation signifies “illuminance” and “shine”. Using a Sanskrit name was of personal importance to her since being the root of most languages in India it signified a closeness to her homeland and therefore served as a vital inspiration for the brand name.
