Explore the mesmerising world of jewellery and the inspiring women that wear them.
From sentimental keepsakes to statement jewels, every piece tells a story.
As a designer of my own jewellery for 30 years, I have gone through many styles throughout the years from traditional, highly embellished, ornamental pieces all the way to very modern, sleek designs. Now I am at the stage where what I wear has to be more than just stones and metal, it has to make me feel good at a deeper level like an amulet or talisman.
This new conviction led me to create my jewellery brand Intisars which is totally and always inspired by the universal language of LOVE. Every piece is conceptualised around that beautiful feeling of being in love and designed in a way that this feeling never subsides.
My favourite pieces for during the day are my Intisars powerword EXQUISITE necklace and matching ring from the ‘Me Oh Me’ collection. As per Dr. Masaru Emoto’s research into the power of words on water, the word EXQUISITE works on the crystalisation of water in my body. The energy of the word vibrates within me and makes me feel so special that it is so much more than just jewellery.
For special occasions, and sometimes for days on end, I wear the Intisars Aqqal which is a symbol of love for the man in my life and has a hidden compartment that has his scent inside. What a way to continue feeling cherished and loved by all these wonderful embellishments of adoration.
Very colourful dresses that I have especially made for me, a big smile and huge love for life, people and the Universe, all this while feeling grateful for all the blessings I have.
I adore the Maze jewellery boxes, these would look great on my vanity in all colours, one on top of the other filled with my trinkets and treasures, and perhaps some of the gems I have yet to design into jewellery.
Other than Intisars that I am so proud to be the founder of, I love Solange Azagury because of her colours and cuteness of jewellery that is also modern yet opulent. She is one of my biggest inspirations.
I am inseparable from my new ring, gifted by a special friend 3 months ago. It is my good luck ring with an Iranian Turquoise stone that belonged to Empress Soraya Pahlavi which was gifted to her by the emperor as a reminder of his love for her.
I have been a collector for years and I think I have fulfilled all my dreams and more of gems. I do love stones dearly but my dream piece of jewellery would be something that uses a natural yet powerful energy or vibration to lift my mood, increase my energy when needed and relax to when I want to sleep. I look forward to creating that dream for "Intisars".
