Husband and wife team, Issa Sabeh and Elham Kalaji, have brought their brand Elham and Issa Jewellery to the UK.
Established in their home country of Jordan in 2007, their jewellery reflects the culture of their native dwellings from handmade mosaics to the inspiration of golden quartz.
They will be bringing four distinct collections to the UK, each with its own unique story.
Mystique: The brand’s signature collection is inspired by the delicate flakes of gold left shimmering on a workshop bench when jewellery is made. Mystique features pieces crafted with a decorative mosaic technique and set with mother-of-pearl, diamonds, turquoise, onyx and sapphire.
Evolution: Elham discovered rutilated quartz as a student and was fascinated by the unique golden patterns in the transparent rock. The Evolution collection was inspired by her desire to extend these lines, finishing nature’s work with a “starburst” effect, and sparkling white and black diamonds.
Awe: When Elham was pregnant, Issa discovered an awe-inspiring turquoise stone in Lebanon. Elham used it to curate a collection symbolising the couple’s love for their daughter. Featuring azure turquoise, diamonds, pink and blue sapphire, the Awe collection is designed for special celebrations.
Amwaj: Inspired by a beautiful blue opal Issa discovered during his travels in the Middle East, Elham has created the Amwaj collection. Meaning waves in Arabic, Amwaj showcases the waves of deep, lustrous colour found in each blue opal. Each piece is also embellished with white diamonds.
They will also provide a bespoke bridal jewellery service. Elham said: “On the day we got married, my wedding jewellery was as individual as the man I was marrying.
“I want every bride to experience the same feeling. We create something completely new and original based on taste, personality and her own love story.”
