ABOUT SHAHEEN ABBAS
Growing up in a jewellery-loving family, renowned jewellery designer Shaheen Abbas’ interest in the art of fine jewellery stemmed from an early age. It was the intricacy of the workmanship, the timelessness of her family heirloom pieces and the techniques used to craft these pieces that really caught her attention. To further fuel her interest and hone her innate inclination towards the field, she took up the Graduate Diamonds Program at the Gemological Institute of America. She then pursued a course in Luxury Brand Management at ISC Paris Business School.
Experimenting with colour, cut and casting, the designer’s aim is to use her jewellery to make women feel glamorous and special every single day of their lives. Abbas started her first venture in the early 2000s, working with silver jewellery when it was still a nascent concept in India. This lent itself to the launch of Shaheen Abbas Fine Jewellery where she continues to add her signature touch of edge to precious favourites like diamonds and gemstones. Abbas’ latest venture is Flowerchild, which brings her unconventional aesthetic to statement making fashion accessories.
