For his SS20 Gemma collection, presented during Paris Fashion Week, he decorated a rings with colourful and oversized stones that are cut into a decadent emerald shapes and placed on top of a contrasting enamel.

He was inspired  flowers that cover the walls of houses in his neighbourhood of Achrafieh in spring. The rarity of the emerald-cut coloured stones selected by Selim, such as Natural Morganite and Tsavorite, makes each individual Gemma ring unique.

Each piece is also numbered, and Selim has spontaneously chosen the colour combinations of the central stone and the one on either side of it, set in rose gold-enamelled edging to create a balance, a paradox or an emotion.

Mouzannar’s love for jewellery began with childhood trips to the Gold Souk in Beirut and watching his father work, hence many of his collection pay homage to his heritage.
