ABOUT THE DESIGNER
The exotic sights, sounds, smells, flora, culture, and traditions of Arabia provide a constant source of inspiration for Fatima Al Dhaheri, founder of Ruwaya, a new fine jewellery brand that takes the natural beauty of precious stones and transforms them into glittering pieces that capture the imagination – and the eye.
Fatima's path to becoming a jewellery designer was almost preordained. Her career as a jeweller began while working for her father at his renowned fine jewellery brand Amwaj, where she began creating one-off pieces for her friends and family. Encouraged by her father to pursue her own vision, she then studied at the Gemological Institute of America, refining her skills and learning the intricacies of diamond and coloured stones before the official nascence of Ruwaya in U.A.E. in 2015.
