In 2008, Virginie Dreyer left her life as a lawyer in Paris, and moved to the Middle East, taking a graphic design course, allowing her to explore her creative desires. She soon launched her own children’s clothing line, CeQueJeVoeu, before founding tinyOm when she wanted jewellery to have a symbolic value and meaning. The name ‘Om’ refers to the yogic mantra, celebrating the birth of the universe, and Virginie finds much of her inspiration in traditional symbols, ancestral tales and the beauty of nature. tinyOm jewellery carries this sacred chant as a soft caress on the skin, each piece designed as a talisman, weaving a precious link between soul and world.
Based in Bahrain, tinyOm creations are handcrafted from 18 carat rose or white gold and ethically sourced diamonds, in the workshops of the Al Zain, the oldest jewellery house in the Middle East. Some items are featured in The Maiyet Collective.
