We are delighted to welcome Malaysian born, London based Durrah Khalil to the fold!
Durrah’s love for jewellery goes back to when she was a child in KL with a mother who was a jewellery connoisseur!
One afternoon a friend of hers came round for tea, bringing a case from which she produced a sparkling array of rare and exotic gemstones. Durrah was immediately entranced by the glittering stones, and proceeded to inspect each marvelous treasure one by one. Seeing her interest, her mother told her to choose some stones to keep, three beautiful tourmalines. that many years later they became part of her first ever jewellery design.
In 2006 this passion led her to join the jewellery industry, where she began by working at some of the world’s most prestigious and renowned jewellery houses including Mouawad and Tiffany & Co. She then went on to study diamond grading, jewellery design and jewellery manufacturing at the Gemological Institute of America and at London’s University of the Arts.
Now Durrah designs bespoke pieces using precious and semi-precious materials with a series of product ranges which are now available online at www.durrahjewellery.com the feel of the collections are essentially classic with a touch of modern edginess.
