Passion, dedication and most importantly skills are needed to enter the competitive jewellery industry and this is the combination that made Solitaire (Mall of Lahore) Designer Jewellery’s Asad-ur-Rehman flourish. Being the third generation of entrepreneurs and having an experience spanning 50 years it is no surprise that they create the most exquisitely detailed and perfectly finished fine jewellery.

Solitaire Designer Jewellery is a brand known for its trust, extraordinary customer service and hard work. The process of creating these enthralling designs is a procedure where the combination of modern technology and in-house designing meet.  Manufacturing and designing are the elements that make Asad-ur-Rehman’s work not only magnificent but result in providing top quality jewellery to his customers.

He believes that inspiration for creating divine work comes from the world itself, from the natural wonders of nature to the glorious yet historic Mughal and Egyptian Art which collide with the mesmerising colours of the ocean. Solitaire Designer Jewellery takes pride in offering unique designs, great finishing and good quality jewels. The designs range from traditional to contemporary, each of its fine jewellery pieces, make a signature statement and set apart the women who wear it. The gemstones that they use are of high quality and are handpicked by the in-house certified gemologists to ensure quality jewels for client satisfaction.  To ensure great quality pieces the clients get jewels stamped with 18k, 21k or 22k gold, guaranteeing long-lasting, durable and superb products that can be passed from generation to generation.

With heavy bridal sets being in demand all over Pakistan Asad-ur-Rehman highlights the importance of design, quality and wearability while selecting bridal jewellery. However, as fashion trends change day by day clients’ demands are also changing from gold jewellery studded with polki to delicate diamond sets.

Starting off with Ruby Jewelers in 1986 he founded Solitaire designer jewellery in 2008 and since then the family business has grown from a typical retail store to an organisation with its own designing and manufacturing facility. They have ventured into manufacturing corporate gifts for Aitchison College Lahore, Pakistan Institute of Fashion & Design (PIFD), Government College Lahore, SMEDA etc. Fulfilling their corporate responsibility, they have been providing internship facilities to students of BNU & PIFD. Now this is a business which not only involves making money but is about fulfilling social responsibility and this is something he certainly did by training women entrepreneurs of Gilgit Baltistan, in collaboration with Agha Khan Rural Support Program (AKRSP), which to no one’s surprise was a great success. In the coming years, they plan to open more outlets across the country and also offer their jewellery worldwide.
