Inside the Creative Mind of our Dear Friend, Iradj Moini.
Iradj Moini has designed jewelry in New York since 1989. Fleeing Iran during the revolution, his passion for jewelry and search for the extravagant and sophisticated woman led him to the city of big dreams after his degree in architecture in Buffalo.
By the late 1980s, his eye-catching designs walked the runway for Oscar de la Renta, where he creatively designed and directed the catwalk jewelry for a decade. He soon built a reputation as one of the most imaginative and visionary designers of his era.
With worldwide collectors and fans alike, his jewelry has been exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York as part of Iris Apfel’s collection, as well as being featured in the Trop Exhibit with Barbara Berger at the Louvre in Paris where he now has three pieces in their permanent collections. Ever since bridging out on his own, Iradj’s creations quickly developed a prestigious clientele and, through considerable demand, has reached retailers around the globe.
“Each piece is handmade and inspired to tell a story, because each woman has such a presence, you want to cherish that and glorify her” – Iradj
