A one-man bridge between East and West alone, this Franco-Lebanese jeweler first experienced the wonders of his profession in the bustling souks of pre-war Beirut. Coming from a dynasty of experts tracing back to the 19th century, Selim Mouzannar inherited a romantic penchant for Ottoman jewelry. He is passionate about so-called "semi-precious" stones first and foremost because he considers them to be fundamentally natural. Tanzanites, aquamarines, tourmalines, sapphires. These gemstones inspire his collections through their rarity and their incredible colors.
