Emerging Emirati jewellery brand La Graine is making waves for all the right reasons with the launch of its debut collection

It’s safe to say that we buzz with excitement every time we discover a new fine jewellery designer, particularly one born from the region. It’s no surprise, then, that we’re keeping an eye firmly on La Graine, an Emirati brand founded by Muna Bin Barradah, whose passion for her craft saw her study at the prestigious International Gemological Institute (IGI) and the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) before going out on her own.

“I aim to exhibit feminine beauty through my designs,” says Muna, whose debut Blooming collection is inspired by her journey through motherhood. “I was inspired by watching my kids growing and blooming, each different from the other, in a very special and distinctive way.” As such, each piece features a central gemstone that symbolises the role of a mother, while the surrounding design serves as a metaphor for each child, celebrating their individuality through stones such as rubies, emeralds and sapphires.

A true labour of love, La Graine marries traditional craftsmanship with contemporary elegance, and each piece is handcrafted in the brand’s workshop in Dubai with the utmost precision, creating timeless pieces designed to be passed down generations. “Our aim is to create jewellery that will last a lifetime and beyond,” adds Muna. We can’t wait to see what she comes up with next. Shop now
