Sikara and Co., a modern fusion jewelry company, has opened its second U.S. pop-up store on Newbury Street in Boston.
The store allows Sikara to open temporarily and market exclusive test collections before rolling them out nationally. Sikara's Boston location will feature globally-inspired designs from India, Mexico, Italy and Spain, among other countries. One test launch is Sikara Travel, a line of travel items and accessories, such as Thai silk laptop sleeves and leather passport holders.
The creator of Sikara, Mousumi Shaw, developed the idea in 2005 while studying at Harvard Business School.
"After spending six years living in Boston in my 20's, the international culture of this city inspired me to bring my vision to life," Shaw explained. "After the success we've seen with our first pop-up store in San Francisco, I knew Boston was a perfect fit for this new trend of store fronts."
Every piece in Sikara's handcrafted line is made of sterling silver and every stone is semi-precious. Each piece goes through 10 to 12 hands while in production. Sikara jewelry is sold in more than 250 stores across the U.S.
