OUR PHILOSOPHY

Art, design & culture. ALMASIKA merges an abundance of influences. We embrace global traditions to create sculptural jewelry rooted in the universal symbols, shapes and stories that transcend societal boundaries. 

Softness, curves & signature, ALMASIKA soft curves echo the lines of the body. Necklaces undulate delicately, bracelets twine, earrings nestle. We design understated silhouettes that come to life, crafted to move you through the day and into the evening. 

Contemplation, reflection, and discussion form the triple foundation of the ALMASIKA approach. We learn from all creatives, from architects to art historians to engineers and artisans. Cultural craftspeople act both as interlocutors and sources of inspiration, setting in motion an artistic and intellectual dialogue. Each has contributed to the genesis of our house’s powerful contemporary jewelry.

OUR COMMITMENT

We take pride in creating unique and distinctive designs that come to life in the hands of master craftsmen. Our jewelry is designed in Chicago and made using 18K gold. All our diamonds are natural and conflict-free. We take pride in creating unique and distinctive designs that come to life in the hands of master craftsmen. 

Gold & Diamonds

The name ALMASIKA stems from “almasi”, the Swahili word for diamond and “sika”meaning gold in several West African languages, evoking the power of two natural treasures joining to form a symbiosis of beauty.

CATHERINE SARR

“I was born and grew up in France. After graduating, my passion for jewelry led me to venture to London, where I worked for various luxury brands promoting craftsmanship from around the world, including several years spent at the heart of the diamond and fine jewelry industry.

As my journey has taken me on to Abu Dhabi and now Chicago, my guiding philosophy has been to find what we have in common with others. It’s an approach that I have carried into ALMASIKA, to offer jewelry that does more than just sparkle.”
