Yossi Harari said: “This collection is inspired by the dream and realisation of finding such rare and stunning precious gems in the soil of the Holy Land. Combining these gems with timeless materials with a modern aesthetic, the jewellery uses a blend of different metal and texture combinations, glass shaker beads, and innovative stone settings in my signature style to create an unforgettable design.
“I am honoured to have been chosen by Shefa Yamim to create this collection and I look forward to continued collaborations with Shefa Yamim in this amazing enterprise.”
