Originally Palestinian, Dima grew up in Kuwait before settling full time in Egypt. Inspired by the land of the Pharoahs, her meticulous attention to detail in each piece marries the past with the present. Using hand-beaten 18kt gold coins, which have become a hallmark of some of her best known pieces, Dima’s luxury bespoke jewellery has been worn by some of the most chic women in the world. They include Queen Rania of Jordan, Gisele Bündchen, Yousra, Gigi Hadid, Heidi Klum, Hend Sabri, Eva Mendes and Susan Sarandon.
To commemorate her 15th anniversary, Dima has launched the Dreams of Gold collection, which pays tribute to timeless Middle Eastern beauty and cultural heritage. The collection includes ’90s-style chokers, lariats, charms and tassels alongside dome-shaped cocktail rings, made from her trademark combination of raw textures and unique precious stones, including diamonds, rubies, emeralds, sapphires and lapis lazuli. Each piece harnesses subtle cultural nods, including delicate crescent moon references.
Dima’s love of coloured stones began at an early age, as her father was an avid collector of rosaries. After remaking some of her own necklaces and bracelets in her own vision, she’s now one of the region’s most coveted jewellery designers. Her pieces are timeless, and her passion for ethically-sourced stones from Persia and India only enhances their beauty. The Dreams of Gold collection is the next step in a journey which is captivating, iconic and luxurious, and a fitting tribute to Dima’s ultimate source of inspiration.
