Originally from Tunisia, Adel’s childhood playground in Carthage-Tunis was on the remains of the material cultures of the Phoenicians, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Andalusians, Ottomans, and many more. They all left behind a tapestry of knowledge, stories and artifacts. When Adel came to New York in 1998 and witnessed the richness of all the different faces and flavors, he felt right at home. New York felt fresh yet so familiar and the inspiration was immediate and deeply rooted. Soon after he started his jewelry studio and continued on his path using beauty as his language. His designs expertly showcase each gem's individual beauty.
