Born in Beirut in 1989, Ralph Masri has had an international upbringing having lived between Lebanon, Canada, France, and the United Kingdom. At 18 he moved to London to train as a jeweller at Central Saint Martins. His first major milestone occurred when he won the Swarovski Award as a first-year student, which gave him the opportunity to work for the global brand. During his second year he received widespread recognition for his talent by being nominated for a UK Jewellery Award – aged 20 he was the youngest to be nominated. He has worked and designed for other leading household names in Europe, and in 2011 he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree, setting up his eponymous label shortly after. With a love for both fine and fashion jewellery, Ralph fuses both worlds combining the preciousness and finesse of fine jewellery with the bold spirit of fashion jewellery, creating statement pieces with a fervent attention to detail and a strong emphasis on artistry and craftsmanship.
