When it comes to thoughtful gifting, Fabula will be your new go-to. The intricate designs are born from a collaboration between friends, 30-year-old Jordanian Darine Abu Salim and 28-year-old Syrian Saada Majored, with a shared love of jewellery that tells a tale – Fabula means ‘story’ in Latin. Each design is lovingly customised to spell out the names, slogans or words of your choice, making timeless keepsakes with sentimental meanings you can wear forever.
Harper’s Bazaar Arabia: Describe your jewellery style?
Saada: The best way to describe our style is simple yet eye catching. A way to express yourself with the distinctive elegance that comes with every piece.
HBA: This Ramadan, who will you be gifting?
Saada: Eid and Ramadan are all about giving and spreading love. What is a better way to give love than a timeless unique piece of gold jewellery that is personalised? I will be gifting my mother with a customised bracelet from our latest collection.
HBA: Which piece would you say is your favourite?
Darine: It would have to be the two-names ring in Arabic calligraphy, designed in a way so the names wrap around your finger – it’s so beautiful on.
HBA: How has your culture informed your designs?
Saada: Our culture has strongly informed our designs; one of our very fast selling collections is the Names collections which are customised Arabic calligraphy, as well as the hand of Fatima. Those collections are inspired by the essence of Arabic culture.
HBA: Who would you love to see in your designs?
Darine: I’d love to see everyone wearing our designs. It makes me smile when I see people wearing our pieces because it means they love it!
