"Jewels are the reflection of our lives: they are unique, precious and full of stories transmitted from one generation to another."
Cynthia Raffoul is a Lebanese-French jewelry designer. Having received her degree in fashion design from ESMOD Beirut, Cynthia Raffoul started her career in prêt à porter and haute couture, working with Alain Mikli and Maison Rabih Keyrouz. Soon after that, she evolved to jewelry design. It all began when someone once asked her to draw some jewelry pieces. She discovered jewelry and its infinite power to evoke emotions by crossing ages. In November 2008, Cynthia Raffoul opened her jewelry shop in the heart of Beirut.
For her, fashion and jewelry have 3 things in common; to reveal people's character, their dreams and, above all, their beauty. This is why going from clothing to jewels was not a radical change but an evolution of her imagination and her dreams.
Each one of Cynthia Raffoul's collections is unique and has its own history and special character. A pair of earrings, a necklace or cufflinks are not just an object but also a memory, an emotion, and a reflection of who the person really is. This is why the Beirut-based designer pays very close attention to every detail of the jewelry making process. She only collaborates with the best goldsmiths which are in the field from generation and who, like her, put all their love and passion into their work.
Her designs are high-end contemporary jewelry for today's women. Daring to reinvent jewelry making with a whole new approach, she finds her inspiration in everything that is beautiful and vibrant. The result: life in silver and gold, and a beautiful new surprise for every season. Dazzling new designs and innovative techniques are what make her elegant creations stand out.
Her favorite items are the rings with the special "snail shape" which has become Cynthia's signature shape. This makes the rings adjustable, easily wearable and timeless.
Among her collections are one of her specialties, "Sur-mesure"; which are unique pieces specially designed for private clients.
Cynthia Raffoul's collections reflect multifaceted women who live their lives with an unexpected twist of originality and poetry.
