Treasure Island is the epitome of graphics and architecture. The collection is rooted in Emquies-Holstein’s profound fascination with the interplay between the architect’s landscape and the simplicity of the graphic lines. Thus the two designers have made a joint jewellery line overflowing with creativity and exclusivity. Treasure Island has the contour of a unique and alluring design made out of precious metals, gold and diamonds. A topographic mode of expression makes each piece of jewellery stand out as an island winding over the body as rings, earrings and pendants.
Sustainability and recycling are dogmatic to modern man. This also applies to the goldsmith to whom all waste is precious – and can be of use. With the “Trash” collection Hanan Emquies gives the notion of “recycling” a luxurious twist. Thus his inspiration for Trash derives from the waste bin of the goldsmith table, in which he accidentally caught a glance of the structure and aesthetics of the cut off metal. The blend of the metal in odd sizes is almost like a living organism and the optical effect is simply stunning. The Trash collection holds rings, earrings and necklaces in silver and gold, and each piece of jewellery reflects the truth in the old saying “One Man’s Trash, Another Man’s Treasure”.

The Flamenco Collection pays homage to a rhythmic and fluctuant mode of expression inspired by Hanan Emquies’ great passion for the flamenco dance. A rare collection that makes modern Scandinavian minimalism and Spanish culture fuse delicately into one. The wavy lines of the ring imitate the distinctive ruffles on the flamenco dress and remind us of the rhythm and alluring beat of the flamenco music. You can literally feel the dance in every piece of jewellery.
This elegant jewellery collection is arisen from the famous song by Marilyn Monroe “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend”. With the Facet Collection Hanan Emquies adds charm and sense of humor to jewellery design with asymmetric facets bringing shape, sparkle and light to each precious piece.

Being a site engineer Hanan Emquies is fascinated by space and what to do with it – in particular in this collection where each piece of jewellery is designed to communicate the feeling of different compartments. The design is simple and sculptural and comes in 3 different pieces with every ring holding 3 ring sizes depending on which finger to wear it and the angle to put it on. In that way the organic ring design fits several fingers from numerous angles – highly personal, yet extremely versatile.
The Whole Collection is inspired by the thoughts of Albert Einstein that we are all part of a bigger whole with mutual responsibility towards each other – and as such a moving and thoughtful piece of jewellery. In a highly poetic, yet very simple and minimalistic design the Whole Collection encourages us to think holistically, since we are all part of the same organism.

A universal message with global sympathy.

The Alliance Collection challenges the classic and traditional notion of the eternity ring. The beautiful rings re-emerge in new shapes as a symbol of the most precious feeling ever: The union and connectedness of two human beings. In the interpretation of Hanan Emquies the symbolism is part of the design itself: More diamonds can be added to the ring as time goes by and this is what makes the design stand out and live forever. The eternity collection consists of slender rings, upon which it is possible to add diamonds all the way around. A minimalistic, yet exquisite symbol of two lovers united.
