We’ll say it before and we’ll say it again, there are so many incredible homegrown brands emerging from this region.

One new conceptual jewellery brand which recently caught our eye is TOKTAM, which was put on our radar by Her Highness Sheikha Mahra bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

Sharing a photo to her Instagram story earlier this week, Her Highness was seen wearing an intricately designed statement ring, tagging TOKTAM on Instagram.

Resharing the post, the brand revealed the ring Sheikha Mahra was wearing was the Mosque ring – an 18-karat ring representing the central dome of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi.

It’s likely Her Highness discovered the brand at the recent Icons Exhibition which took place at the Palazzo Versace Hotel over the weekend.

TOKTAM was one of the local brands showcasing at the event and the founder of TOKTAM, Toktam Shekarriz, met Her Highness during her visit.

The brand shared a photo of the founder and Sheikha Mahra on Instagram captioning the post: “We are extremely honored to have Her Highness Sheikha Mahra Bint Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum visit our booth and meet #ToktamJewelry founder at @icons.exhibition.”

TOKTAM the brand was launched at the end of 2021 and is inspired by the founder’s Persian heritage mixed with Arabic influences and takes a conceptual view on various contemporary pieces of art and architecture, recreating them in the jewellery form, with a story to tell.
