When you think of jewellery, think of Mike Saatji.
Born in Armenia to a family of jewellers, Creative Director Mike Saatji has spent over 22 years honing his expertise in jewellery making. As a young boy, he spent all his school holidays at the jeweller’s bench to nurture his craftsmanship. Over time, what began as a hobby eventually transformed into a serious pursuit. At the age of 21, Mike fell under the spell of sparkling diamonds and was captivated by their power and magnetism. He began to study and practice the art of setting diamonds and coloured gemstones into precious metals. He was intent on learning all the intricacies of jewellery making and gaining the experience needed to become a professional jeweller. To this end, he embarked on an apprenticeship for a few years – in multiple cities, under various masters – where he “filled his hand” with skills and acquired a vast amount of formative knowledge.
