About The Designer:
Self taught hijab jewelry designer Nida Mirza, builds on her strong Islamic traditions as well
as her interest in design. In 2003, while completing her dual degrees at the Fashion
Institute of Technology (FIT) in Manhattan, New York; she realized the lack of hijab friendly
accessories. This motivated her to create contemporary hijab jewelry for herself and her
friends. Based on the positive response and increased demand for her unique style, in
2008 she created an E-boutique called IslamicGems.com. What started as a hobby, making a few pins, grew to being several original collections and a successful online business. IslamicGems currently consists of four collections- Brooches, Stick Pins, Charm Sets, and Ith-nains. The lather two are exclusive to IslamicGems.
Nida currently lives in Queens, NY and continues to design and inspire Muslim women around the world to feel confident and incorporate fashion in to their Islamic attire while still being modest and true to their religious obligations.
Currently there is a flood of generic hijab pins in the muslim market but IslamicGems is the only source available providing unique and high quality functional hijab jewelry. We listened to the American Muslimah and have put much time and effort in to designing pins which would be practical. All of our collections are lightweight therefore not depressing the fabric on the side the pin is worn. Our brooch latches can be easily closed with the push of a finger, there is no need to fumble in the mirror trying to figure out which direction it locks. Our stick pins are sturdy, snag free and prick free. Our charm sets make it easy to alternate pins throughout the day without having to restyle your hijab. While our Ith-nains pins provide double the support, preventing the Muslimah from having to choose between a head full of pins or a shifting hijab. We are currently the only company in the USA and possibly the world whose hijab jewelry embodies the practical needs of the Muslimah without compromising style.
