Nora Pawar is JH’s editorial coordinator, heading up Jewelry Shopping Club, handling incoming press kits and editorial inquiries, as well as serving as a liaison with public relations firms. Nora holds a B.A. in anthropology and English writing from the University of Pittsburgh and is also a certified Yoga instructor (RYT500). She likes learning what drives people to specific jewels, comes from a family who considers fine jewelry a religion, and married into a culture rich in a love of gold and precious gemstones. Nora’s favorite piece of jewelry is a gold octagon-shape bangle bracelet with engraved wheat stalks, a family heirloom; her dad gave it to her mom when she was pregnant with Nora, and her Nora’s mom gave it to her when she was pregnant with her child. Nora and her husband live in the Philadelphia suburbs with their young daughter (who has a budding interest in jewelry) and their two active Dobermans who enjoy gnawing on wristwatches when unattended.
