Josiane Fakhry

Josiane was born into science. Not gemmology science; anatomy and neuroscience. It is one of the points that make her attention to detail reach the next level. Having an artist’s eye helps add the beautiful touch to designing a piece of jewellery. The difference between a ring and a piece of art is sometimes a fine line and this is where Josiane’s role comes into play.
