ABOUT RALPH MASRI

FROM LUXCARTEL:

“Born in Beirut in 1989, Ralph Masri has had an international upbringing having lived between Lebanon, Canada, France, and the United Kingdom. At 18 he moved to London to train as a jeweler at Central Saint Martins. His major milestone occurred when he won The Swarovski Award as a first-year student, which gave him the opportunity to work for the global brand.

“During his second year he received widespread recognition for his talent by being nominated for a UK Jewelry Award, where at age 20 he was the youngest to be nominated. Ralph has worked and designed for other leading household names in Europe, and in 2011 he graduated with a bachelor’s degree, setting up his eponymous label shortly after. In 2016, Masri was honored with a Vogue Arabia Fashion Prize.

“Ralph Masri fuses the preciousness and finesse of fine jewelry with a fashion-conscious point of view, creating statement pieces with a fervent attention to detail and a strong emphasis on artistry and craftsmanship.

“Ralph Masri has been worn by Deena Abdulaziz, Gigi Hadid, Constance Jablonski, Maryna Linchuk, Rita Ora, Meghan Markle and Sarah Paulson.”
