If you haven’t heard of jewellery designer Nigora Tabayer yet then you will do soon, as celebrities are going crazy for her ultra-luxe take on the protective eye. And if you explore the new jewellery collection, we expect you’ll see why. The up-and-coming jewellery designer debuted her fine jewellery collection at Paris Fashion Week earlier this year with a guest-list of VIP guests and friends, as well as global models Caroline Vreeland and Coco Rocha, and since then, she’s been cast into the limelight in a big way.
Her inaugural offering, The Eye Collection, marries protective eye symbols alongside all 26 alphabetical characters of the English alphabet, with her debut designs initially manufactured by the world-renowned House of Graff.
“Everywhere I went, my mother would give me an eye of some kind,” she says of the collection. “It’s a third eye to protect from bad energies. I wanted to continue with that memory, which is very special to me, through my own designs and creativity.”
Already boasting an impressive roster of celebrity clients including Coco Rocha, Bella Hadid, Jessica Khawaty, Halima Aden, Shanina Shaik and Eva Longoria, the third eye carries significant cultural significance all over the world. The pieces can also be specifically personalized which adds extra exclusive appeal.
“Though may of the people that wear my pieces have their own reasons for wearing a specific letter, their names, the names of a loved one, each Tabayer pieces also comes with a specific attribute that is part of the brand’s mantra,” she added. “For example, B stands for Beautiful, which is subjective but forever memorable…A is for Authentic, which I feel is essential now more than ever. Authenticity is what creates the connection between the wearer and the pieces.”
If you’re looking at snapping up a piece of your own (which we highly recommend you do), there are two sizes of pendants and a bracelet available, with earrings and rings to be launched during Paris Fashion Week in September. All set in 18K white gold with G colour, VS+ diamonds and adorned with emeralds, why not own a little piece of history?
We can’t wait to see what’s to come…
