Dedicated to creating wearable yet versatile jewel treasures, Harmesh Jewellery has been at the forefront of redefining contemporary yet luxurious accessory pieces for your jewellery drawer. From gold bangles to diamond-encrusted pendants, these are the ‘must-have’ assets every wardrobe needs. With so much to offer, we sat down with the designer Eman to discuss her journey, her many sources of inspiration and what it takes to be a jewellery designer in Dubai’s fashion market.
The Harmesh Jewellery Journey
Eman: As a child I use to see my mother, elder sisters and aunts wearing different traditional pieces of pure gold accompanied by beautiful jellabiyas. As, I grew up ,I also started wearing jewellery but it was more contemporary and edgy that’s where I decided to launch a label with modern designs keeping in mind todays women.
My journey so far with Harmesh is good bit challenging but good.
The Many Sources of Inspiration
Eman: Initially, when I was designing my first collection, I took inspiration from my mother’s collection – the pieces which were gifted to her by my grandmother on her wedding.
The collection is very close to my heart and has a great emotional value. For other two collections I was looking at our culture and heritage keeping in mind 21st century working women. Something she can wear daily with an effortless style and elegance.
I also travel and read a lot so keep on getting new ideas and inspirations.
