Based on ancient artefacts, Azza Fahmy's new collection mixes cultural traditions with haute jewellery. Buro 24/7 has the details of the new bespoke collection...

Azza Fahmy has released its Azza Fahmy for the British Museum collection. The second collaboration between the two, the new collection is part of the ongoing exhibition at the museum titled Egypt: Faith After the Pharaohs.

Created using the jewellery house's signature techniques of combining sterling silver with gold, the four new pieces are inspired by ancient Egyptian coins and will also be available with additional options, including the addition of precious stones like diamonds and onyx.

"We are delighted to have been invited to collaborate with this iconic institution once again," said Amina Ghali, Azza Fahmy's Head of Design. "A natural part of our design approach is to creatively include cultural references by way of story-telling. The coins captured that sense of history and really resonated giving us artistic scope to encapsulate elements of the exhibition in the creation of jewellery pieces that perfectly complements the exhibition's dialogue."

The Azza Fahmy for the British Museum collection is now available at Harvey Nichols, Dubai.
