Selim Mouzannar

 

Selim Mouzannar wanted to create a place where Beiruti women looking for fine and unique pieces come and mingle, but now his designs have gone global stocking across the world including Dubai.

With a background in jewellery, both his father and grandfather were also jewellers, he launched his line of delicate designs in 90s in Beirut. With inspirations drawn from the early memories of visits to the now disappeared Gold Souk of Beirut downtown, he is has become recognized by his mastery of the “falamanki” cut, or rose-cut, a classic Ottoman jewelry tradition.

After graduating from Paris’s Institut National de Gemmologie in the 1980s, Mouzannar traveled and worked in both the West and East before establishing a shop in Achrafieh, one of the oldest districts in Beirut.

You can feel that the intricate designs have had the privilege of time that was spent in sourcing and crafting the pieces that ooze the traditional but feel very now. It’s no surprise that Mouzannar won a global fan base, us included.

Available in Bloomingdale’s and Harvey Nichols – Dubai
