Rising from the desert sands of Dubai amongst the sacred whispers of Ramadan comes HASHT Collection, a union of mystical spiritualism and exquisite artistry.

Islamic jewelry is steeped in tradition with fine pieces from the Arabian Peninsula dates as far back as 3,000 years ago, when it was crafted with seashells, pearls, and stones. As trade and travel routes opened, gold, glass, and eventually precious gems were integrated from far reaching places like Spain and Malaysia.

Early Islamic jewelry was a fusion of classical, Byzantine, and Neo-Persian traditions with Nomadic tribes helping to form the aesthetic using jewelry as currency and ceremonial dress. Women wore their riches on their body as a secure method to transport it while traveling. When needed, jewelry would be melted down to pay their way. In more prosperous times, the jewelry would be amplified with more gold and silver, coins, and rare stones—an ancient savings account.

A person of stature in the 12th-century Middle East might be seen wearing a gold pendant depicting the form of a lion and it was around this time where the use of encrustation in crescent-shaped piece with semi-precious and precious stones started to gain popularity.

Based in the heart of Dubai’s New Gold Souk, Hanif Jewellers has long been considered the touchtone of sophistication and indulgence and continues the longstanding tradition of fine craftsmanship with their new compilation.
