Having been born in Malaysia and brought up in London, at the ages of nine and seven we moved to Peshawar in Pakistan. We were immersed into the new and captivating environment of the Khyber Paktunkwa region. The community welcomed us with love and generosity, and we were mesmerised by this energising city which sparkled with incredible colour and life.
Our father took his position as principal of Edwardes College, whilst we went to school in Murree in the Himalayan foothills – the jagged uniforms of those mountains inspired a connection within us and the formation’s outline and scale remained imprinted in our minds.
Kate revisited the area in 1989, exploring the Swat Valley and more of the country. She was again touched by the hospitality of the people and breathtaking landscapes.
Now, with families of our own, we would again like to reconnect with Pakistan and return the love and generosity we received and to capture the romance and artistry of the majestic mountains which have remained in our hearts.
Myne London jewellery reflects the wild elegance, mystery and romance of Pakistan. With ethically sourced jewels from the artisan mines, we prioritise and value our relationship with the mining community. We work closely with people and companies on every stage from ‘mine to market’ to adopt a fair and responsible ethos in the creation of our distinctive jewellery.
