At MARDA Gems, our Inspiration is derived from Ethiopian indigenous Jewelry designs originated from 3000 years ago. Our originality and creativity come from the countries terrain and its hidden treasure of undiscovered cultures and unique colored gemstones that remain untouched and unappreciated in our modern history.
Ethiopia followed a heritage that is vital, colorful and unique since royal crowns and kings and queens adorned with jewels made of gemstones, gold, and silver for centuries. To this day the love of ornamentation ruled by a natural affinity for beauty led the Ethiopians to adorn themselves in memorably dramatic jewels with timeless designs handcrafted used during festivities and religious rituals.
The diverse and profusion of jewelry design weather crafted by skillful smiths of gold and silver or made in the villages by mothers over coffee, from leather, base metals, and colorful beads, Jewelry making has been an integral part of the national attire for Ethiopian ladies that is unique to their respective tribe, culture, and beliefs.
