Born in Beirut in 1989, Ralph Masri was raised between Lebanon, Canada, France, and the United Kingdom. At the age of 18, Masri moved to London to train as a jeweler at Central Saint Martins. He went on to win the Swarovski Award as a first year student, which gave him the opportunity to work for the global brand. The following year, and at the age of 20, Masri was the youngest jeweler to be nominated for a UK Jewellery Award.
Ralph Masri graduated with a bachelor’s degree in jewelry design in 2011, and founded his eponymous brand shortly afterwards. In 2014, he opened his first boutique in the heart of Beirut’s creative hub, Mar Mikhael. Masri combines the finesse of fine jewelry with the bold spirit of fashion jewelry to create statement pieces with a strong emphasis on artistry and craftsmanship.
