Hailing from the generations old jewellers, who started the Mukhamal Ramnarain Jewellers in the trendy Connaught Circus and had an elite clientele comprising of icons like Teji Bacchan, visiting heads of State and royalty residing nearby in Lutyens Delhi. Khanna, the youngest of the family, has always had a gift for jewellery designing and has worked hard and long for the success that he found.
Although he joined the family tradition, the man whose family had been dealing with jewellery for five generations, however, decided he was not in favour of mass commercialism. Instead he set up a salon for creating exclusive jewellery, mostly for export. Located in the basement of Chanakya theatre, the salon is where he met local buyers twice a week, by prior appointment. For his satisfaction, he does all the ground work himself, right from the initial artwork to making prototype in wax and substitute metals. Khanna styled bespoke jewellery and attracted diplomats and the discerning south Delhi elite. Soon he was singled out to represent design at The Festival of India at the Cooper Hewett museum in N.Y., U.S.A. His displays were inaugurated by the legendary Jackie Kennedy Onasis. He rubbed shoulders with His Excellency the Duke of Edinburough, The Maharani of Jaipur, Heads of State and Diplomats. He won the De Beers diamond International Award in an international contest and was hailed by the Press as the man with the golden touch.
