Pictures of jewelry in magazines fueled a young Christina Debs’ dream to design jewelry, now a reality thanks to investor Mounir Moufarrige. Themes in her 18k gold work nod to her Lebanese heritage in the form of Phoenician princesses, as well as nature and even tattoos. Her signature is a line of diamonds outlining companion stones, many of which are rose cuts, and all pieces are made in Lebanon and Italy. Debs’ tutelage took place at Lebanese jewelry workshops, three different jewelry schools—including the L’Ecole Boulle in Paris, where she spent six years living—and through the GIA. She’s also had her own retail shop in Beirut for five years, now wholesaling for the first time. Meet Debs in Hall 1.1 booth A10.
