Five Minutes with Noor Fares: Inspired, Impactful Jewellery

Based in London, designer Noor Fares creates jewellery that fuses her Lebanese heritage with a contemporary sensibility. We caught up with Noor to find out about the inspiration behind her latest collection, ‘Akasha’, and how she is using jewellery to create a positive impact on both people and the planet.

What’s the inspiration behind your jewellery, and what made you decide to start creating?

My collections draw inspiration from talismans, sacred symbols and geometry found in different cultures. I have always been fascinated by discovery and love travelling to new countries in search of inspiration. My latest collection ‘Akasha’ is inspired by four sacred symbols, each used for meditation in the form of mandalas.

You’re often drawn to the spiritual significance of jewels and gemstones. Can you tell us why that is, and how it forms an important part of your brand identity?

In Lebanon, gemstones and jewellery are so interwoven into the day-to-day lives and culture of the people that this has left an impression on me since I was a child. From there, I have aspired to integrate this protective quality into my work through research and designing modern talismanic pieces.

How does Noor Fares as a brand have a positive impact on people and the planet?

I believe that jewellery should tell a story, so I try to create pieces that hold meaning and a little mystery. We are also very conscious of the impact producing jewellery has on the environment and are constantly looking for alternative methods of production where possible.

A number of celebrities have been spotted in your beautiful designs. What kind of woman do you envisage wearing Noor Fares?

I envisage a woman who does not follow the crowd; she has a sense of creative independence and a passion for life.
