Walid Akkad, from Lebanon to Paris for design jewelry with a Nordic taste ♦
Lebanon is a country blessed by nature and cursed by the civil war that for many years has upset the lives of its inhabitants. For this reason many have gone away in the past: many creative minds, like that of Walid Akkad, who moved to France. In Paris the designer studied jewelery, design, gemology, pearls. In short, everything you need to become a jewelry designer. But not just any one. His pieces are rare, very exclusive, with a modern and clean design, which would make one think of a Nordic rather than a Middle Eastern taste.
Walid Akkad realizes his jewels in the goldsmith laboratories of Paris, under his supervision. He loves the less known stones, the clean lines, the attention to detail. They are not jewels for everyone: one of the rare occasions when it goes outside are the editions of the Pad, an event reserved to art, antiques and a few selected jewels, in Paris but also in Montecarlo, Monaco or London. As happens, precisely, in the new edition of this exclusive fair.
