Young Jewelry Lines to Watch

Madyha Farooqui

Madyha Farooqui NoLita cocktail ring

Originally only available to private clients, fashion consultant Madyha Farooqui expanded her jewelry offering in 2011 after a showcase in Saudi Arabia sold out in just ten days.

Brimming with inventiveness and joie de vivre, New Yorker Farooqui’s designs mesh classic with modern to create pieces that are the epitome of contemporary glamour.

Recently, the NY designer’s chic NoLita cocktail rings have been gaining some serious traction with the international fashion pack, with the designer’s unique ammonite fossil and rose cut diamond earrings featured in our September/October edition.

Speaking about her distinctive style, Farooqui explains: “You might notice that while some of the styles lean more towards architectural and modern, others are more organic. What ties both styles together is that the focus is on the cutting of the stones; highlighting the gemstone is central to my aesthetic.”
