Nadine’s jewelry design journey began when she created her own wedding jewelry. She started ‘Nadine Jewelry’ where her first line was focused on the soul.
Nadine comes across as centered, target-oriented, relaxed, and poised when you first meet her. She is very in touch with her core and is very specific about what she likes and dislikes, but like many of us, she has been soul searching. After 8 years in banking, one morning she decided to answer to her true calling – jewelry design.
Though she never thought of herself as an artist, she always admired art in all its forms. Her father, a renowned businessman whose trade is centered around luxury watches and jewelry, played a pivotal role in Nadine’s journey. It was when she was jewelry shopping with her father for her wedding that she thought, “Why not create my own? Why not wear jewelry that speaks Nadine?”
So she studied jewelry design in London at GIA, and became a gemologist, a certified diamond graduate, a certified gemstone grader, and an accredited jewelry professional. Treating it as a science and not a mere hobby, Nadine is very meticulous about the fine details.
Rouh (“soul” in Arabic), her first line of creation, was inspired by the story of a mother who wanted to gift her child a pendant with etched Quranic verses. Nadine wanted to make this a timeless memento for the child to cherish for eternity. Pieces in this line are meant to address matters of the Rouh, both spiritual and emotional.
Nadine Jewellery turned heads on the Red Carpet at the 2018 Cannes Film festival where it was showcased by Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio, film director Maram Taibah, and TV personality Ola Al Faris. She was also recently awarded Best Local Designer in Saudi Arabia for 2018 by Grazia magazine – a strong start for a strong business model.
