    Noor Fares is a young and highly talented Lebanese jewellery designer, who launched her first jewellery collection in 2009. Noor had an extremely international upbringing, living between Europe, the United Sates and the Middle East. Her jewels are a result of a blend of these travels, her Middle Eastern background and the inspiring work of architects such as Frank Guery or Zaha Hadid. Noor Fares meticulously selects her stones and materials which reflects the perfect attention to detail and finish she instills into her creations. Original and distinctive, the Noor collection is tactile and playful, and certain to be loved by all who wear it.

    This delightful ebony and diamond bangle comes from Noor's 'Touche du Bois' collection - French for touch wood - taking its inspiration from universal lucky charms. A very popular expression in the Middle East, it is usually used in the hope that a good thing will continue after it has been acknowledged.
