Mike Saatji, Creative Director of Mike Joseph Jewellery, has dedicated the last 25 years to honing his expertise in the design and making of fine jewelry. Born in Armenia to a family of jewelers, Mike spent every spare moment of his formative years at the jeweler’s bench. As he grew, what began as a childhood hobby blossomed into a lifelong passion and pursuit.
To this end, he embarked on a multi-year apprenticeship, studying in multiple cities, under various masters, whereby he “filled his hand” with skills. Captivated by the power and magnetism of diamonds and colored gemstones, he focused on creative ways to incorporate them into his designs. Over time, intent on mastering the intricacies of jewelry making, he gained the experience necessary to become a professional jeweler.
HOW TO WEAR IT
For a person that loves contrasts and wears jewelry that is both powerful and subtle, that becomes a part of the wearer’s image; not just to be worn on special occasions, but a symbol of its personality.
A woman who’s done her make-up won’t leave her house without the finishing touch: lipstick. The same applies to my jewelry: it’s an unfailing part of a woman’s image; it completes the look and makes each one unique and sophisticated.” – Mike Saatji
Mike Saati, the founder of Mike Joseph, was born into a family of jewelers. Mike for several years has practiced the art of setting diamonds and colored gemstones into precious metals. He started his own business with his brother Joseph in 2016, the brand, Mike Joseph Jewelry. The style of the brand repose in refined forms and minute diamonds. Are delicate pieces but with an ample format. From what I know they have launched three collections, Waterfall, Buble, and Perla. Their creations are delicate so well-thought-out and balanced that we can feel the fragility, the absent strength, and yet the bold and the audacious of the creations. Their jewelry is composed in forms in which we can see through it, having surreal fall in shapes of earrings, necklaces, rings, and bracelets, holding the magic movement of loops of water, gathering and floating up forever; them these bubbles once they gather like sand on the beach, contain a complete eye of water becoming a Perla. Like poetry, each line in their jewelry is like the petal of a rose, and between each petal, a pearl, and a diamond. Mike Saati says: “We should stop trying to impress others with the things that we own. And start trying to inspire them by the lives that we live”. A Fragile and Bold, Delicate and Audacious, statements like a double-edge sword, or just a Perla and a Bubble.
