Zameer Kassam is a VOGUE-featured jewelry designer and founder of his eponymous fine jewelry brand.
Zameer's love affair with jewelry began in his teens, while working at his family jewelry business in Vancouver, Canada. Early on, he learned that jewelry is about more than the incredible beauty of gemstones or the excitement of wearing a magnificent piece; it is about celebrating the most important moments in life, in a way that will last forever.
After honing his business skills at McKinsey & Company and MTV Networks International, he reentered the world of fine jewelry by joining De Beers Louis Vuitton as the head of the bridal and classics business. From there, his passion for design led him to create his own brand, Zameer Kassam Fine Jewelry, which was launched in 2011 in New York and London.
Zameer takes his clients' loves stories and builds classic engagement rings, yet secretly weaves details of each couple's story into the design. Perhaps the number of diamonds on the band represents their years together, or a secret gemstone set inside the band represents an important moment in time. When the bride retells the story of the ring, her focus isn’t the diamond or the setting, but how her husband spent time with Zameer to incorporate their most special moments into the design.
Zameer has created over 1,000 pieces of fine jewelry for private clients around the world, and has been featured in VOGUE, CNBC, Forbes, Crains, CNN, Harper's Bazaar, The Knot, the New York Post, Harvard Business School Alumni Magazine, among other publications.
