These are the regional jewelry designers we have our eyes on
Who doesn’t love a little sparkle? Regional designers know a thing or two about crafting incredible pieces of jewelry. From Qatar to Saudi, here’s our round-up of the brands currently on our radar.
Born in Doha, Qatar in 2018, Kaltham’s Pavilion is a marriage of both Kaltham, the founder’s first name and the word Pavilion, which, if you didn’t know (well – we didn’t) means the lower part of the diamond. The pavilion actually plays the most important part in what makes a diamond shine and sparkle.
With a wish to create jewelry that stands out using only the finest quality and craftsmanship, Kaltham’s Pavilion quickly became known for their incredible colored sapphires, diamonds and other precious gemstones set in 18 karat gold. For Kaltham, bringing joy to her customers is the ultimate goal.
The brand also beautifully represents the Qatari culture and values elegantly, all while incorporating tradition, heritage and nature into their fine jewelry pieces.
