Mijou Jewelry On World Gold Council's Top Ten List


The World Gold Council announced today its picks for this year’s “Great Designers.” Among the 10 jewelry designers are Jeana Mushriqui and Magdi Mushriqui of Mijou Jewelry. The World Gold Council is based in the UK, with operations in India, the Far East, Europe and the United States.
Every year, the World Gold Council showcases a selection of 10 jewelry designers and goldsmiths from around the globe. According to the World Gold Council, “These are the talented artists and artisans, some avant-garde, some classical, who are pushing boundaries, challenging conventions, exploring the beauty and unique innate qualities of the noble metal, and bringing a new, dynamic dimension to the art of gold.”
“When I design in gold, I seek to shape its inherent natural beauty, indescribable and often hidden, into a work of art. Gold carries a glow and sense of joy, following the movement of the wearer.” Magdi Mushriqui states.
“Gold radiates warmth, authenticity and unpretentious glamour. Turning gold into a work of art is a reminder of how we can find and shape the best in ourselves,” Jeana Mushriqui adds.

Mijou strives to create handmade jewelry that reflects one’s inner beauty and simplicity. Behind each handmade jewelry design, there is a story how it was made, the love that was put into it, what causes it supports, and the love that the giver is expressing to the recipient.
A percentage of proceeds from all Mijou jewelry pieces sold go to changing the life of someone in difficult circumstances. These are not mere acts of charity, but acts that bring about beauty in its varying forms. Each piece of jewelry helps to beautify an ugly circumstance. Each piece is unique as the one who made it, the one who benefits from it, and the one who wears it.
Mijou Jewelry was established in 2009, and the father and daughter jewelry making team gained international recognition when awarded first place in the runway category by the World Gold Council in AuDITIONS Arabia. The premier gold jewelry design contest hailed as being the Oscars of the Middle East jewelry world, and over 1,000 designers participated with close to 10,000 designs. As a result, the top 30 designs were manufactured into actual jewelry pieces and modeled for an elite panel of judges comprising of some of the most accomplished and well-known jewelry and fashion experts. The final six winners were announced in an awards ceremony and received prizes, trophies and certificates of merit.
In 2011, Mijou launched its first ready to wear collection, Collection Solo, featuring organic contemporary designs in 18K white and yellow gold. Whether it’s Mijou’s vibrant ready-to-wear designs or delicate one-of-a-kind couture, the organic designs by the unique jewelry company have received wide recognition amongst nontraditional jewelry circles.
Last month, Mijou’s Cordis Pendant in 18K white gold was selected as one of the ‘Top 10 Valentine’s Gifts’ by the Jewelry Information Center. To view the feature and for more information, click here.
