Born and raised in Paris, and of Lebanese heritage, it is no surprise designer Noor Fares produces such eclectic jewellery pieces. A source of inspiration in her works, the Lebanese designer launched her namesake jewellery brand in 2009 and started spreading her influences by stockists including Net-a-Porter, Dover Street Market and Bergdorf Goodman.
Using materials that have metaphysical properties such as moonstones, lapis lazuli and healing crystals, Noor features them as the basis for her collections. These materials are intended to be portals of energy and are introduced as amulets to ward off negative influences in most of her collections.
Noor adds a modern touch to her pieces to keep her designs contemporary. One of her signatures is geometric shapes found in many of her pieces. Clean lines and dainty, Noor keeps her jewellery designs appealing and versatile for all ages and occasions be it, a gala night or your weekly Saturday brunch.
