These accessories will add a royal touch to any outfit…
Jordan’s Princess Nejla bint Asem has joined forces with Dubai-based jewellery giant Damas to create a new collection, fit for a… well, princess.
The 16-piece line, featuring elegant statement necklaces and drop earrings, is named after the royal (who is actually a jewellery designer in her own right).
The collection is described as a celebration of cultures, bringing the East and the West together by blending traditional oriental pieces with monochromatic hues and tones.
“I draw my inspiration from my days as a child walking through Downtown Amman and romanticising about the semi-precious stones in the shops,” Princess Nejla said.
“Influenced by everything surrounding me, I grew up in an Arab and oriental environment, which helped me pave the way for designing jewellery.”
The princess continued: “As a child, my grandmother spotted my thirst for jewellery design and helped me nurture and develop the craft.
“We shared countless moments discussing gems, stones and different pieces, she would describe some of the most memorable pieces she’s seen in her time and I would attempt to imitate them.”
The collection is exclusively available in the Damas store in the Dubai Mall (or you can take a peek at the jewels on Instagram).
