Miswaf's gorgeous jewellery are handmade in the heart of Old Cairo at Al Moez Street, with highly-skilled Egyptian craftsmanship behind every detail.
Although Miswaf only recently entered the statement jewellery scene in March 2021, they were quick to impress with their beautiful designs, anchored with philosophical underpinnings and embellished with the finest silver and gold ornaments. All of their pieces are handmade in the heart of Old Cairo at Al Moez Street, with highly-skilled Egyptian craftsmanship behind every detail.
Lost in the philosophical musings of Rumi and enamored by the spiritual beliefs of the Ancient Egyptians, founder and chairman Zein Khalifa was inspired to curate a brand of jewellery that evokes true wisdom in its designs. Each element of their earrings, cuffs and necklaces is carefully handpicked to interpret and encapsulate a meaningful quote.
“As a philosophy student, I very much enjoyed looking for meanings in things that claim beauty,” Khalifa tells #CairoScene. “To me, beauty lies in the meanings within what we find aesthetic; meanings give value to things. Our ancestors relied on symbolization as a form of art that speaks histories until this day. After handpicking some quotes and creating their designs, Miswafs first collection was born: Al Bedaya.”
Currently, all of these pieces are made from 925 sterling silver and sometimes dipped in 18K gold or platinum. Their pieces are exclusive, with every collection having only seven designs, never to be made again. Keep an eye out for their future collections, which will feature diamonds and other precious stones.
