Designer Profile - Rosa Maria

Rosa maria jewelry is at the crossroads of classically designed jewelry and the edge of cutting edge. Rosa Maria made the transition from fashion to jewelry in 1998, opening her design study in Beirut, Lebanon. She sees her work as part of a personal and national healing process after her country suffered through political unrest. She is now one of the top jewelry designers sold in the European market. Her pieces are unique in that they draw upon classic jewelry forms in completely au courant ways. The centerpiece of her jewelry is often the metal the jewelry is made of framed in Jewels, a seemingly antithetical focus from classic forms of jewelry. She bucks the norms of symmetry and form with her pieces as well; nothing is perfectly symmetrical, some pieces are amorphous. Each collection artfully blends silver and gold with a dazzling array of rose-cut diamonds, rubies, sapphires and topaz.
