For as long as Rania Kinge can remember, she’s been fascinated by the innermost details of design. Childhood drawings of houses included every detail imaginable - right down to the patterns on the china and the carvings on the cutlery. When not sketching, young Rania Kinge could be found dismantling television sets to see what lay within. This fascination with the details and mechanics of design grew into a larger passion, and now Rania Kinge can be found building stunning pieces of jewelry rather than breaking down household items.
One Designer: Two Concepts
I Love Syria a line entirely made by displaced women, created after Rania had visited Schools that were turned into shelters to house the pouring numbers of displaced families in Damascus. As displaced families relied solely on donations, and food bundles that contain foods that necessary for survival, and that every month more donations would be required. It was clear at that time that something needs to be done urgently to help people in particular women who have lost their homes gain back a sence of normality, not through charity of donations, but through something gratifying that can empower them mentaly, emotionaly, and economically.
DConcept by Rania Kinge remains delicate, but is inspired by the old town of Damascus (see inspirational video). We can coexist; one ring from this controversial collection features the Star of David, the word “Allah,” and the Christian Crucifix on one piece. Another ring from this collection, named “PUNK SALADIN,” is inspired by the spikes on the famous Arab warrior, Saladin’s, helmet.
Rania Kinge designs are for worldly, classy rebels everywhere, and can be found online and in stores worldwide.
