Our Collections, Our Stories

JERASH FISH

The Jerash Fish Intricately carved in stone in the vicinity of the Nymphaeum in Jerash are four fish, abstractly depicted with sinuous curves performing flowing movements in the water basin they are carved in. In this collection the Jerash Fish is revived to be enjoyed. Moreover, traditional folklore stories refer to the “Fish” as a sign of impending prosperity & good luck. ...

HAND OF FATIMA

One of the most popular Body Guards in the Middle East, the Hand of Fatima is believed to bring protection and good fortune to its owners and to endow them with virtues of patience and faithfulness

ARABIC CALLIGRAPHY

Celebrating the art of Arabic calligraphy, with calligraphic works especially created for us by our experienced calligrapher Bilal Abu Toaq.

FLOWERS OF THE DESERT

The Desert castles, once hunting lodges of the Umayyad Caliphs, dating back to the 8th century AD, are located in the desert primarily in Jordan, with a few others in Syria and Palestine. Considered to be among the first examples of architecture produced by the Muslims, they are fine examples of stepping stones bridging the prevalent architectural styles of the day and the glory that was ...

AGATE COLLECTION

Different shades of the agate stone, which when worn, ward off the Evil Eye and protect the wearer. Tradition has it that it should be worn for protection during travel.

COPPER COLLECTION

From the legendary copper mines in southern Jordan, comes a collection of delicate hand made jewellery. Tassels of copper and colourful stones echo those that adorn Bedouin tents; and traditional amulets such as the turquoise beads and the Evil Eye ward off malicious vibes transmitted by jealousy and envy.

THE ARABESQUE

The Arabesque Collection This collection pays homage to the ‘Arabesque’ in Islamic art: the application of interlacing geometric forms with sinuous forms of foliage & flowers. The geometric forms constitute an infinite pattern in composition, extending beyond the invisible material world, symbolizing the infinite and therefore uncentralized nature of the creation of the one Go ...

THE MAGIC SQUARE

Amulets and talismans such as the evil eye and the hand of Fatima are frequently used in the Middle East to give protection and to ward off sinister forces. Numbers are also used in this context. Each number has its own cryptic meaning, and their arrangement holds as much significance as the numbers themselves. Number 1 stands for God, number 2 represents the jinns, number 3 stands for weal ...

IQRA COLLECTION

IQRA is the first word in the Quran, revealed to the Prophet by Angel Gabriel and ‘IQRA’ means ‘READ’. The ability to read is therefore of great importance to Muslims, not just to be able to read the Quran, but to gain knowledge and to progress.

BYZANTINE COLLECTION

Inspired by jewels found at various locations within Jordan, mainly at the Roman city of Jerash, and which are now on display at the Citadel Museum in Amman, Jordan, we recreate jewels from this golden era of the history of our region.

ROMAN COLLECTION

Jordan is home to many cities of the Decapolis. This collection pays tribute to the Roman era, as we recreate jewels from artefacts on show at the Citadel Museum in Amman, Jordan.

THE YOUSOR BEAD

Yousor: To make life easier; to relieve obstacles from one's path. The original Yousor bead, made from black corals and hand inlaid with different designs in silver, is traditionally used for making worry beads. Replications of this bead have been made from different kinds of wood, and the original meaning attributed to bead retained.

KUNOUZ

Local stones from the desert in southern Jordan, hand shaped and drilled by local ladies in the Qadisiyyah Cooperative, make up this collection which we aptly named Kunouz, treasures.

OUR DESIGN

Inspired by the art and architecture of the Islamic world, the designs are mainly showcased at our own Store in Amman, located at the InterContinental Hotel, which acts as a gallery as the displays continuously change

Nadia Dajani

Nadia studied architecture at University College London and participated in several architectural projects since leaving college, most notably the Jordanian Pavilion at Expo 2000 in Hanover.

Her passion for jewellery making and design led her architectural interests to take a back seat, designing with silver and natural gemstones to create a distinctive style and unique pieces, many of which are influenced by Arab culture and tradition.

Nadia Dajani Jewellery is not only a design and fashion house but is also a community project giving back to society on many levels. A strong advocate of Corporate Social Responsibility, a workshop was set up in Amman with the aim to empower local women, and which also trains them in the art of jewellery-making.

Our artisans now create the most delicate and intricate pieces of jewellery which has been featured in many fashion magazines regionally and internationally.

BASALT ROCK

BASALT ROCK

We love volcanic basalt rock. We love it's texture and colour, and given the minerals in it, we absolutely love the reddish colour that may sometimes appear due to oxidisation of some minerals withing. Did you know that in addition to certain places on earth, basalt is also commonly found on Io, one of the moons of Jupiter?

EMPOWERING WOMEN

Our project started in 1997, with the aim of giving back to society by educating and training women in the basic skills of jewellery making and beading, ultimately giving them gainful employment.
Working from home, and in their own time, we have seen our artisans develop their skills over the years to the highest standard.
The artisans in our studio now number over 25, who not only make jewellery but also sew the beautiful pouches that they come in. They now manage themselves and their production at our workshop in Mugablein, Amman.

This project is run by the ladies, who manage themselves as well as the jewellery production in a simple yet efficient manner. Qualities such as timing, dedication, quality control all fell into place, and the work ethic is of the highest standard.

We worked closely with the South Company for Construction and Development in Jordan, helping to train the ladies at the Qadissiya Cooperative to create stone beads out of the stones of the Jordanian desert. They shape stones that they collect, and drill them, which we then purchase.
