Desert Mannequin X Bil Arabi “Alef/20” Fine Jewelry Collection Reveal

Nadine Kanso, the jeweler behind Bil Arabi, has teamed up with Anum Bashir, the “Desert Mannequin” stylist and blogger, to create a limited edition fine jewelry collection of eight pieces. The collection, which is called “Alef/20,” includes 18K gold cuffs, earrings, pendants, and rings, which are fitted with diamonds and sapphires. Inspired by the letter “A,” the collection symbolizes courage, adventure, and strength—the latter being a primary theme throughout the contemporary designs.

While this statement jewelry delicately illustrates a woman’s inner warrior, it also recalls Bashir and Kanso’s shared passion for art. The official launch event will take place at the Lumas gallery in DIFC during Art Dubai on March 20th.

The Bil Arabi Alef/20 collection in collaboration with the Desert Mannequin will be available mid-March exclusively online at as well as at Sauce Rocks, Harvey Nichols Dubai, and Per Lei Couture.
