About Omid

Mission statement

At OMID, we are dedicated to hand crafting stunning, one-of-a-kind pieces that not only showcase the natural beauty of Afghan gemstones but also empower Afghan refugees who have been displaced due to conflict. We believe that by providing these refugees with a creative outlet and sustainable income, we can help them rebuild their lives and contribute to their communities. We are committed to using only the highest quality, ethically sourced natural gemstones from Afghanistan, and our team of skilled artisans handcrafts each piece with precision and care. Our jewellery is not only beautiful but also tells a powerful story of resilience, perseverance, and hope.

By supporting our brand, our customers are not only adding a stunning piece to their collection but also contributing to a larger movement of empowering vulnerable communities and preserving the natural beauty of Afghanistan.


OMID, which means "hope" in Persian, is a collaborative effort by Orah Jewels and Mr. Javaid Noori, a senior jewelry teacher at the Turquoise Mountain Foundation in Kabul. Mr. Noori had to flee his homeland due to conflict, but his passion for jewelry making did not fade away. He brought his expertise and passion to OMID, where he now works alongside Afghan refugees to create handmade jewelry using rough gemstones from Afghanistan.

Each piece of jewellery is a reflection of the rich cultural heritage of the Afghan people, along with showcasing the unique and natural beauty of the rough gemstones. OMID is crafted with care and attention to detail, resulting in a stunning and unique piece of wearable art.

What sets OMID apart from other jewelry brands is their larger mission: to create opportunities for refugees to earn income using their talents and skills. By working with these artisans, OMID is able to support a community of people who have been displaced and provide them with a sense of purpose and hope.

Join the mission of OMID and help to create a brighter future for those who need it most.
