Mouawad may have become a celebrated brand in high-end jewellery, but the story began in the 19th century, when David Mouawad (1865-1951) left his native Lebanon in 1890. He spent almost two decades in New York and Mexico, honing his skills as a watchmaker, goldsmith and jeweller.
Brand Mouawad started a new era at the turn of the second decade of the 21st century. Fred Mouawad is currently the fourth-generation of Mouawad’s “co-guardians”.
"Five generations of the Mouawad family have contributed to the company's legacy of innovative jewellery designs and timepiece craftsmanship spanning more than a century,” says Fred Mouawad, “co-guardian” and CEO of Synergia One Group .
Since its origin in Lebanon in 1890, the brand's storied ideals have been revitalised to provide genuine elegance and sophisticated jewellery masterpieces to an increasingly global market.
Mouawad is headquartered in Thailand, and uses highly skilled Thai craftsmen at the jewellery hub where their products are crafted with care and exported around the world.
