Established in 2006 by Nadine Kanso, Bil Arabi has fast become one of the most exciting new brands to emerge from the middle east.
Lovingly handmade in the UAE, each Bil Arabi piece is a work of art, expressing Nadine’s understanding and appreciation of Arabic calligraphy in a contemporary, universal milieu. Melding her background in graphic design and typography, Nadine created her very first piece of jewellery, a ring named ‘noon’ in 2006. Entirely handcrafted in 18 carat gold and anointed with a semi-precious stone, the ring that was to be a one-off project became an instant icon.
Today, the collection celebrates the shape and poetry inherent to Arabic alphabets through rings, earrings, bracelets, pendants and one-off, personalized works. In the fine jewellery world of yellow, white and rose gold, and dazzling precious and semi-precious stones, Bil Arabi has carved a particular brand of self-expression.
