Using gold, diamonds and semi-precious stones, Five 2 clearly like to have fun with jewellery. The design duo focus on the moon and stars in a majority of their collections as well as personalisation.

Gafla celebrates Emirati heritage in a contemporary way. The Dubai-based brand reinvents the countless stories and symbols of Arabian traditions, creating unique jewels that have an international appeal.

Those who are looking for something a little more edgy with a geometric design aesthetic, Shamsa Alabbar is an experimental line based on Arabic typography. We are especially smitten with the Kaaba cube necklaces.
