The Lebanese jewellery designer spoils us for choice with his collection’s stunning display of coloured gems and impressive craftsmanship. Sélim Mouzannar’s exciting career has seen him studying gemology in Europe and hunting for rubies in Thailand, before returning to Beirut to open his own label in 1993.

The Mina collection features a range of vibrant stones that have been handpicked by the knowledgeable designer himself. These gems include emeralds, sapphires, morganites and tsavorite garnets, each surrounded by a black enamel and diamond-set border.

Enameling remains one of the most difficult techniques to master within jewellery making, and Sélim and his team had to learn this method before creating the new collection. Enamel has long been prized in jewellery, with its earliest examples found along the Mediterranean coast. Since then it has held its place as a firm favourite in jewellery design due to its refined style and choice of colours.

The Mina jewels bring their enameled beauty straight to Dubai, available as rings, pendants, bracelets and earrings. The collection is the latest example of Sélim Mouzannar’s eye-catching creations, which see him looking to his native Beirut, its Ottoman influences and other historical motifs for inspiration.
