The Egyptian-born designer, Mina Hassan, brings the influences of her heritage and culture into each piece of jewelry. Her collection features an eclectic blend of precious stones in vibrant colors, intricate carvings and classic elements of style. Mina was born in Cairo, Egypt but grew up between Cairo and Raleigh, North Carolina. She has created a style of jewelry that is reflective of the past and yet contemporary for the woman today. Each piece of jewelry is handmade and each style is unique. All jewelry is handmade with semi-precious stones, silver, and gold-plated metals. MINU Jewels (my-new) has now effectively reached all corners of the world and has received national and international press. Today, MINU Jewels can be found in upscale boutiques across the U.S and in retailers around the world.
Mina resides in Albuquerque, New Mexico with her husband and two sons. Mina still has strong ties to Egypt and visits her friends and family annually
