Abu Dhabi-based brand The O Jewelry, founded by Emirati designer and artist Shamsa Al Omaira, has created a limited-edition collection to honor the upcoming Holy Month. ‘The O Tourmalines’ collection features 18-karat rose-gold necklaces made with a mixture of brilliant and rough-cut diamonds, with beautifully hand-carved stones.
Speaking exclusively to Savoir Flair, Al Omaira says the new collection was inspired by “the twinkling lights of Ramadan, the scent of oud, the sweet bitterness of Arabic coffee, and the laughter warming up the majlis – the spirit of Ramadan, a festive month filled with unconditional love, appreciation, happiness, faith, and good deeds.”
This collection is a departure from the brand’s usual dainty designs with diamonds and pink sapphires, and introduces a new material in the form of tourmaline stones. “It is very different from what we usually design,” Al Omaira explains. “The quality and detailing in each stone was so inspiring and seemed a little personal, as if each stone had its own story to tell, which I found so appealing and had to include in The O Jewelry collections. I think Ramadan is the perfect time to launch such traditionally inspired pieces.”
