Hassan Bounkit's jewelry line, Bounkit, is influenced by the exotic looks of Morocco, where he was raised. He creates high fashion looks, working colorful precious and semi-precious stones into designs that are bold, dramatic, and romantic. Bounkit studied fashion in Florence, Montreal, and at FIT in New York City. Before launching his own jewelry line, Bounkit worked for the couture house of Ferragamo, the legendary Arnold Scaasi, and Nicole Miller. The jewelry line Bounkit was launched in 2006 and has since been featured in numerous magazines and television shows. Bounkit produces three complete collections each year in his New York City atelier, where each piece of jewelry is made by hand to his specifications.
