GLEM Jewelry brings distinctive craftsmanship forward by taking the past into the future with remarkable designs that echo another time, yet remain contemporary. Our vision is to design jewelry that feels like your second skin, yet makes an unequivocal statement.
GLEM’s first exclusive collection is “Ophidia”, inspired by the sophistication of modern snakes. “Ophidia” resembles the renewal of a snakes gleaming skin and symbolizes rebirth, power and eternity. Fine jewelry shines and gleams, and much like the gleaming snake skin, embodies the spirit of womanhood.
The signature gemstone of GLEM is Black Onyx because it resembles power and strength. It reminds us to look within ourselves, understand the past, appreciate the present and move forward in life. Every GLEM collection will include at least one pièce de résistance featuring Black Onyx.
Our Founder and Designer, Sara Slayim AlKhaled, is infatuated with artistic chandeliers. Much like a room highlighted with a chandelier, Sara’s designs are instrumental in making a statement that define an impactful first impression. The concept of “GLEM” was inspired by how chandeliers reflect varying degrees of beautiful light and shade filling the room with an unmatched atmosphere.
Bold beauty, quality and timeless craftsmanship are imperative elements for each design. When wearing a piece from GLEM, our wish is that it will instill a feeling of empowerment and strength, to follow your dreams and discover your true calling.
“Be Yourself. Create Your Own Story.”
THE JOURNEY TO GLEM
The love for creativity began when Sara was six years old. While traveling, on impulse, she made a crown of daisies for herself. It was her first attempt at an artistic creation. She received such praise that her interest in design was ignited.
The creativity process resonated with her soul. It is this early childhood experience that influenced her life goal, and she never looked back.
Over the years she immersed herself in treasured volumes of exquisite collections by esteemed fine jewelers and she would always ask herself, what will you do next? She sketched designs fervently in her spare time knowing that one day she would create her own collection of jewelry that other women would treasure.
Her vision was bold and modern, yet influenced by her cultural heritage. She shared her fine jewelry dreams with loved ones who instantly appreciated her exquisite designs.
To Sara, jewelry is the outfit. The clothing is the accessory, not the other way around. This journey led her to creating GLEM Jewelry.
GLEM was created to reflect the power and essence of a woman through crafting artisanal fine jewelry.
“I believe that jewelry is the language of self-expression, the quality of being powerfully and mysteriously attractive.” – Sara Slayim AlKhaled, Founder & Designer
