Tariq Riaz makes jewelry that fuses imagination and mechanics, applying skilled craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology to create award-winning works of art.
More than beautiful, his work is uncommonly comfortable to wear, using proprietary stretch and spring technology to create objects that move to fit any body, or change to fit any mood. We call this innovative design AbrazoFITTM, a salute to the tango, where the embrace — or abrazo — is what connects the dancers. It is the foundation for all gestures, before any step is taken, before any adornment is added. For the woman who owns a spectacular piece from Tariq Riaz, this means a ring that always fits throughout her life, regardless of how changes such as pregnancy or arthritis might alter her fingers. Or it might mean earrings that can be changed to suit an occasion or a mood. These are objects that delight the eye with their beauty, intrigue the brain with their ingenuity, and span the generations with their comfort and outstanding craftsmanship. We are excited to display our jewelry in person for the first time in Abu Dhabi at Ether, Yas Mall.
