Actress, Angelina Jolie wore a pair of asscher cut diamond drop earrings by fine jewelry designer, Samer Halimeh to the 'First They Killed my Father' premiere on September 11, 2017 at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada. Angelina Jolie was styled by Jen Rade.
Samer Halimeh was born in Beirut, Lebanon, during the height of the Lebanese Civil War, quite literally amongst rubble and dust. Coming from what he describes as a "medical family", Samer's far-fetched aspirations of being a diamond trader were no match for his war-torn surroundings or his pedigree. Regardless, Samer was seduced by the lure of the diamond industry in early childhood. At the age of twelve, within the throngs of a dilapidated market in Beirut, Samer bartered successfully over his first diamond purchase; instinctively he knew a good deal when he saw one. Immersed in every aspect of the process, from sourcing through to cutting, polishing and setting; our talented team of individuals are armed with the comprehensive knowledge and scientific understanding needed to create such wonderfully refined jewels without compromising their integrity.
