Beirut-born fine jewelry designer Ralph Masri combines the alluring preciousness of fine jewelry with the audacious overtone of contemporary taste to create detail-oriented pieces that emphasise meticulous artistry and craftsmanship. Indicative of his international upbringing, Ralph melds architectural elements from his Middle Eastern heritage with Ancient Roman patterns, the colours and lines of stained glass cathedral windows with a hint of the clean, sharp edges of Art Deco, prompting a metropolitan brand identity of historical aesthetics and modern taste.
Ralph trained as a jeweller at Central Saint Martins, where he won the Swarovski Award as a first-year student, giving him the opportunity to work at the global brand at the age of 18. A year after, he received widespread affluence for being the youngest to be nominated for a UK jewelry Award. Ralph continued onwards in his creative career by working for leading household names in Europe before graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Jewelry Design in 2011, launching his brand shortly afterwards. In 2016, Ralph was honoured with a Vogue Arabia Fashion Prize, also ranking #2 on the Forbes 30 Under 30 Class for the Middle East in 2019.
