Mouawad and Tiffany & Co. alum Durrah Khalil launched her line Durrah Jewellery in the U.K. this past November after she noticed a gap in the jewelry market. "I always found myself looking at pieces from fine jewelers with an exceptionally high price tag, or at costume jewelry, which was seasonal," the designer who is also the brands creative director, says. "I wanted to create something that was luxurious yet easy on the pocket." Today, Khalil is making her bold-yet-still-classic necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings available to customers across the pond via her web site. The travel-inspired bijoux have a moderate price point ($137 to $675) and are crafted from high-quality materialsmostly sterling silver with black rhodium and yellow-and-rose gold finishesby master artisans in Italy. "The most rewarding part of designing is seeing a piece bring a smile to someone," Khalil says. "That feeling is absolutely priceless."
