Every story has a beginning. Discover how Jawhara began in 1907 and grew into a global design house at the forefront of innovative jewellery design and expert craftsmanship.

History and Heritage

The Abdullah family started the jewellery business in 1907, the time where craftsmanship, culture and innovation became a tradition. The passion to create modern and traditional jewellery designs to the region unifies the four (4) generations for over hundred years. In 1955, the journey began in Dubai – United Arab Emirates with the Late Mohammad Taher Abdullah Almohtadi where he established a jewellery business with a Goldsmith Shop, which he passed on to his sons, Tawfique, Tawhid and Tamjid Abdullah in the mid 70s.

In 1979, the 3rd generation of the Abdullah family started Damas as a single retail jewellery shop to an international fashion jewellery giant covering nineteen countries and five subcontinents from which they exited in 2013.

The Group

The group has now grown into a well-diversified consortium, with a strong presence in jewellery, real estate and investments, having a dedicated team of more than 950 members from different nationalities.
