JRS jewellery was founded by Julien Riad Sahyoun who is driven by a desire to unite humanity and leave a positive footprint on the world.
Sahyoun’s designs which are predominantly unisex, are crafted using responsibly sourced stones and ethically produced
in workshops in Italy and Hong Kong, with each design bearing the hallmark of their creator. Born in Casablanca, Morocco, of French, Italian and Lebanese descent, Julien Riad Sahyoun has been inspired by his mixed cultural heritage to create jewellery that is both modern and symbolic, often influenced by nature.
Sahyoun’s core values; unity, equality, and acceptance, inform his design philosophy and he believes in freedom of expression and creating new standards and norms within the industry. Sahyoun has utilised his collections as a form of social activism, seen in The Bullet peace line, a tribute to his friend and photographer Leila Alaoui as a symbol of hope in these turbulent times. The bullet pendant which features a damaged bullet is a symbol of anti-terrorism and has the word ‘Peace’ inscribed in eight different languages. All profits go to Leila’s Foundation and select charities that support children in conflict zones.
