TAQAT is an Egyptian Jewellery brand, launched in May 2017 by Salma ElAnsary. Starting out as a college graduation project, TAQAT came to life by the support of Salma's mother and co-founder Nevine Moustafa. Salma graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Graphic Design, as well as a Film Minor. Having been passionate about jewellery making and precious stones her whole life, pursuing this career was her dream. Salma also took various crystal healing and gemology courses with Egypt's most renowned masters, as well as an advanced silversmith workshop in Bali.
Under a Modern Nostalgic theme, Taqat's inspiration comes from a variety of traditional and cultural symbols combined with modernity and simplicity. Working with precious and semi precious stone, genuine leather and 925 sterling silver as a base, each piece is handcrafted by Egyptian artisans with care and delicacy to meet the customer's satisfaction. Seeing that most pieces are made to order, and each stone varies in color and texture, this adds to their value and uniqueness.
