18K Gold Aya Calligraphy Earrings
with Black Diamonds
With its stoic ancient ruins, and tasty cuisine the Lebanese city Broummana is popular to those seeking relaxation. 

The city is known not only for its plethora of fresh fruits and vegetables but also for its array of stunning flowers. 

Lebanon is also home to featured jewelry designer Nada Ghazal.

Ghazal’s 10-year old high-end fine jewelry brand, Nada G, highlights a classic yet plush style that boasts nuanced details with haute, cosmopolitan flair.  Her largely sculptural style is all about flowing curves and movement. 

Made from 18-karat yellow and white gold design ideas from the lithe calligraphic doughy silhouettes of her Aya Collection to the clear-cut openwork of her Matrix Collection are elegantly dynamic. 

In addition to gemstone accents of rubies, blue sapphires, and opals, Ghazal makes use of the unique icy diamonds.  These diamonds feature heavy inclusions and impurities that provide the stones with a distinct color. 

The jeweler’s artistic predilection was shaped at the age of 6 while she watched her grandmother crochet.  “I could watch her for hours on end and never tire,” she recalls.  “The first time she held my hand against the needle and guided me to tie my first knot was a wonderful feeling.  I knew then I wanted to be an artisan.”

Ghazal’s first step toward jewelry making would come about two years later at the age of eight.  However, many years would pass before she would fully immerse herself into the world of all that glitters.

In 1994, after receiving a degree in advertising design from the Lebanese American University, the future jewelry designer worked for 10 years at a Dubai advertising firm.  While still employed, in 2002 she made her first collection of bracelets, necklaces and rings from crocheted 18-karat gold string and gemstones. 

The following year she displayed the pieces at a public forum where they sold out in less than 3 days!  By the time she left her job in advertising, in 2004, Ghazal was ready to launch a full-fledged jewelry brand.

“I refer to my collections and my work as nothing less than utter passion, and above all, a true labor of love,” she enthuses. 

“I wanted a brand that was personal, authentic and that transcribed my emotions into something distinctive, timeless and fascinating. I have always been a meticulous person seeking perfection.”

2015 Jewelry Trend AlertMulti-rings worn on multiple fingers is a hot trend this year.  

Ghazal’s take, however, is a single, diamond encrusted ring with multiple bands.  Her rings are fun, flirty and oh so glam!
