The Baalbeck Collection

Collection Note

In another life, Karma Salman would have been an architect. Despite her chosen path, she has kept her second passion within her sphere of creativity. Often visiting Baalbeck, located in the fertile plains of the Beqaa Valley, the ancient temples drive her inspiration. The stately ruins of the Roman Heliopolis provide the genesis for her Baalbeck line of jewellery, comprising of four different rings and a bracelet. The breathtaking columns of the Baalbeck temples are paralleled in Karma’s ring designs - ornate pillars make up the ring band which hug the wearer’s finger, creating a beautiful aesthetic, that is finished with a gentle underside opening for added comfort. Like sunlight hitting the Temple of Bacchus on a Spring dawn, the Baalbeck rings mimic the play of light and shadow.
