History

Our family have been handcrafting jewellery in our workshops based in the heart of the Kingdom of Bahrain since 1930. The love and care we put into designing and meticulously crafting each piece embraces our philosophy of giving... from the hearts of our family to the hearts of those who receive and wear our jewellery.

OUR HISTORY

From the humble beginnings of a pearl merchant to a multinational brand, Al Zain has come a long way. The family's forefather, the late Hassan Al Zain, began the business as a trader of pearls back in 1930. During the days when Bahrain's trade scene relied mostly on farming, fishing and pearl diving, he was regarded as a pioneering entrepreneur of his time.

His son, the late Abdulla Al Zain, who soon after joined the business, became an essential asset to his father's business concept. He expanded Al Zain's geographic footprint by being one of the first to combine pearl and jewellery making in the Gulf. He had an inherent passion for pearls, an eye for beauty as well as a progressive mind for business. He began incorporating the watch business into his jewellery trade and travelling to Italy and Switzerland in pursuit of the highest quality of products. In the early 1950's, he opened his first flagship store outside Bahrain in Khobar. This marked a true triumph for the company and the first of the several other shops that would later be launched in the region. 

FOUNDING FATHER

We celebrate life’s finest and most special moments with exquisitely handcrafted jewellery to suit every occasion. From the birth of a new-born baby to the joy of your teenager’s graduation, from young budding love to the eternalness of marriage or life achievements, Al Zain celebrates it all and every special moment in between.
