Ralph Masri is going from strength to strength with the latest announcement that his jewels will be available to the entire GCC region through Ounass. The 29-year old Lebanese designer, who trained at London’s Central Saint Martins and whose designs have already been picked up in the Gulf by both Harvey Nichols and Bloomingdale’s in Dubai, has designed an exclusive capsule collection for the luxury e-tailer within his signature Arabesque Deco line.

Combining traditional Middle Eastern architectural motifs with a modern edge, the jewels blend yellow gold with either white diamonds or yellow sapphires for the first time, as well as featuring a smaller size of the regular Arabesque Deco hoop earrings.

The fine jewellery label now boasts a stellar A-list fan base, which includes Gigi Hadid, Nicki Minaj and Queen Rania, who just this weekend donned a ring from Ralph Masri’s Modernist collection at an anti-bullying campaign launch in Jordan.

Speaking exclusively to Bazaar, Ralph Masri said of the Ounass launch, “In such a short span of time Ounass has established itself as the top online luxury retailer in the region, and I couldn’t be more excited to be joining the family and have my pieces available to the entire GCC region.”
