Jewellery design house Azza Fahmy has launched ‘Nubia’, a culturally-inspired 8-piece handcrafted collection.
The collection takes inspiration from the architecture of Nubian houses and Hassan Fathy’s photographic archives of the historical Egyptian city.
Azza Fahmy founded her business in 1969, almost 50 years ago, in Cairo when she was an interior design graduate in her mid-twenties.
Now the global fine jewellery brand has over 200 employees and 14 stores worldwide.
Fahmy said: “This collection holds a very personal resonance as the theme is reminiscent of “Houses of the Nile” my very first collection which launched my design career.
“For ‘Nubia’ I was creatively drawn to the structure and characteristics of Nubia houses and that of the city.
“The collection artistically depicts authentic architectural details and also includes a representation of Lake Nasser through the use of a statement irregular turquoise stone. It’s great to be able to celebrate the city through our jewellery.”
The contemporary artistic collection consists of rings, earrings and necklaces enhanced with champagne diamonds and semi-precious stones.
Available on line at www.azzafahmy.com and through all Azza Fahmy retail outlets.
