His work of creating timeless, intrinsically-designed and aesthetically-perfect pieces of jewelry that can be passed from generation-to-generation, is an extension of who Tariq Riaz is at heart: a designer with a passion for creating bespoke and couture pieces of art that can be treasured for a lifetime.

A passion for being creative and working with his hands something first manifested in his childhood but, while Tariq did not know it at the time, the seeds of his haute couture jewelry line began during his time in college in the United States, when he worked part-time in a jewelry store. He became acutely aware of how jewelry in the modern-day can often be generic, shiny pieces that offer no connection or functionality for its wearer.

Despite a foray into a successful career in computer engineering, as he realized the creative urge would not leave him and a life-changing incident gave him a new awakening, Tariq realized he needed to focus full-time on art and design. Only by truly focusing on something he loved, could Tariq find inner happiness and purpose. With a wife and a newborn baby, Tariq refocused his efforts to pursue his passion as an artist and bring to life his creative ideas; first in his apartment then slowly moving into a fully operational workshop and design studios.

Initially, his work saw Tariq creating light fixtures and artistic creations for the living space using concrete, steel, wood, and resin, utilizing skills he garnered from international experts, stretching from New York to Chicago, and manufacturing bespoke pieces capitalizing on his creative imagination. Tariq made it his mission to create pieces based on the raw materials he could find organically from the land from within a 100 miles radius from where he was based – using nature to inspire both the textiles and elements of design.

It was during his participation in a design exhibition in Dubai that his original interest in creating unique heritage-inspired heirlooms came to life when customers remarked how his pieces looked like jewelry for the living space. It gave Tariq the impetus to sketch his first jewelry designs on a drawing board. It was then that Tariq truly fell in love for the first time with the process of jewelry creation.

Having found his calling in the region, Tariq wanted the land, history and heritage around him in the Middle East to inspire the design of locally-relevant pieces; a collection of extravagant and intricately-designed rings and necklaces that would showcase some of the most culturally-relevant landmarks of the UAE and Arabian Peninsula. Hunting for the best and most ethically sourced precious stones, Tariq worked with diamonds to create more than simply jewelry – but lasting heirlooms that could be treasured for a lifetime.

The Masterpiece collection was born, followed by the Next Generation collection. Together, the collections represent designs that offer more than just high-end luxury – but incredibly unique craftsmanship, functionality, and timeless beauty.
