Jewelry for the man
who doesn't wear jewelry.
We design for the modern and confident gentleman with a European sensibility.
We know what he wants...
He usually doesn’t wear jewelry, except a beautiful watch.
We’ve grown with him and we know where he’s going.
Worldly, well-read, cultured and traveled, he appreciates art and luxury, and doesn’t follow trends.
He is sophisticated, with a strong penchant towards unique design and personal touches.
Quality and provenance are important to him.
We understand his concerns and his aspirations, and we’re constantly listening to him as he evolves.
My husband David is my muse. I always design with him in mind. Discreet, elegant and refined, he is the epitome of the Zadeh man.
For most men, jewelry used to be intimidating. The first time I suggested to David wearing a bracelet, he was adamant:
" No way, this is not who I am."
Indeed, until few years ago, most men were uncomfortable wearing jewelry. Unless one was into heavy chains or leather, there was nothing designed for the understated and discreet man, the one who barely wears a ring or a watch.
A ring was the only accessory David contemplated and for a good reason: we were getting married! I designed our matching wedding bands, with barely any details in yellow gold. A year later, his ring felt "too tight". What he meant was " I really don't like wearing jewelry". He removed it and has not been wearing it ever since.
"He loved the look of it: masculine, distinct yet discreet. A conversation piece. He was hooked..."
Few years later, running into a Parisian friend, his elephant hair bracelet piqued his interest. "I would wear this" he mused.
That encounter inadvertently launched the Brant collection.
Elephant being an endangered species, we substituted the elephant hair with Asian water buffalo horn, a sustainable and organic material.
The horn is hand sliced into fibers, braided and intricately pieced together, then molded into the shape of a wrist and set into an 18kt gold clasp.
The Brant collection was born.
Buffalo horn, a signature ZADEH material, has a naturally worn look to it. During the fabrication, we apply an oil to soften the horn and give it a rich black luster.
With time and through showering, swimming, etc, the oil wears off and the horn slowly recaptures its original gray patina.
If you try out a bracelet for the first time, start with our signature Cayenne cord bracelet.
And then you can stack them.
In order to be comfortable wearing jewelry, you need to be comfortable with being who you are.
Think of jewelry as a way to express yourself, as a way to stand out in an artistic way.
Our jewelry is an accent, designed to enhance your unique personality. Jewelry should not define you nor overwhelm you.
A distinct stack, made of a simple cord bracelet paired with a sterling silver cuff or a stronger piece such as the buffalo horn bracelet tells your story, how you feel and who you are.
With jeans and a t-shirt or even with a well tailored suit, your ZADEH jewelry is implicitly a reflection of your values and what you stand for.
Exercise, shower, swim...you never have to take them off!
