When you wear a Bounkit creation, I want you to feel the same excitement and wonder my daughter does when she sees a sparkling gemstone. Growing up in the vibrant colors of Casablanca, I was surrounded by gems, which sparked a lifelong passion.
My journey took me to Florence, Italy, where I studied fashion design and learned the art of patience in a couture house. A field trip to New York City stole my heart, and seven years later, armed with a backpack and a dream, I made it my home. Though the language was a challenge, working with Nicole Miller and learning English on the go fueled my determination.
In 2006, with my wife's unwavering support, I created the first Bounkit pieces from our living room. The journey led to Oprah's admiration, Elle magazine features, and a growing list of celebrities, royalties, and media recognition.
Our approach is passionate and rooted in family, from our NYC workshop to our global team of artisan stone carvers. Together, we turn accessories into timeless heirlooms and beautiful inspirations for family traditions.
Now, our family includes you. Welcome to Bounkit!
Innovations in Accessorizing
As the name describes, each piece in collection is interchangeable and can be worn in various color combinations and configurations - whatever the wearer can imagine for herself! Bounkit's innovative approach to accessorizing inspires clients to have fun with their style and express themselves accordingly. All our designs are made to define your day, lift your mood, soothe, or add sparkle and unending fascination. Bounkit pieces are always suitable for any occasion, ready to complement your natural beauty - and your new favorite outfit. Brooches and earrings transform into pendants, while necklaces can be worn as belts or bracelets.
Inspiration & Process
Bounkit's loyal clients compare the jewelry to the "perfect spice", a je ne sais quoielement that may seem trivial to the uninitiated but actually makes a major impact.
Every year, Bounkit produces three complete collections in their New York City atelier, where the jewelry is handcrafted to precise specifications. The goal is always to create an of-the-moment look that clients will crave and wear with complete ease and enjoyment, whether for casual or glamorous occasions. The brand has become the family's autobiography, adding a new chapter with each new collection full of its own stories.
Hassan enjoys mixing sunset hues with vibrant, organically-cut, semi-precious stones. Many of the boldest pieces feature sensationally gigantic gemstones, making them "power pieces" that pay homage to the statement cuffs worn by the silver screen stars of the 1940s. They perfectly blend modern, architectural style with a splash of Art Deco.
