Brand story

When Aya first moved from Lebanon to Tanzania, she was nostalgic to her homeland most of the times, from within her longing she developed a love for earthly gems as well as  flowers , and  specifically cultivated this love by growing flowers in her own garden. One day she received a gift from a friend, a gemologist who visited Tanzania often to find the rarest Tanzanites, the gift however was a  special species of orchid seeds which once she planted , bloomed into the most beautiful vanilla colored orchids . Aya fell more in love with her orchid which for her represented love, peace , beauty and strength. Every time the gemologist visited her they would spend long hours talking about the different gems, their origins, colors, resemblance and power.

As the time passed her interest in the world of jewelry and gems grew into a passion which she perused through further research and education.

In September 2015 , Aya decided to create her own jewelry brand and named it ’ The Orchid Jewelry’ in reference to the flower that shed the light on her road to find her passion .
