Azza Fine Jewellery
Azza Fine jewellery was formed by the designer Azza Al-Hujari’s childhood imaginative world in mythology, history and especially the connection between the island she has grown up in and the Kingdom of Bahrain. Azza always believed that the island was “magical”, with historical evidence of civilizations dating back to 4000 BC confirming her beliefs. Working as a senior legal consultant Azza believed and searched for real life, the life to preserve and treasure her island’s magic. Her fascination with nature, culture and talismanic Jewellery guided her into jewellery design. Azza treasures her culture for her continued inspiration, the culture where Jewellery is a part of your daily life, and diamonds are welcome to breakfast. Her designs contemplate a dance which shifts between this mystical island and modern life. With Bahrain’s notorious reputation throughout history for its gold and natural pearls, Azza had taken advantage of the opportunity to find a better medium to preserve the magic of her island. Azza launched her Fine Jewellery Line in 2012 after graduating from the Gemological Institute of America.
