For nearly 40 years,Catherine Mansoor has provided clients of Mansoor Fine Jewelers not only the opportunity to purchase a work of art they will treasure a lifetime, but a link to a family tradition started in Cairo in 1904.
Her grandfather, Mansoor Mansoor, established an antique and fine jewelry shop in Egypt’s historic Shepheard’s Hotel, catering to international aristocracy at the turn of the 20th century. Her father, William, passed down his passion for objets d'art – and the stories behind them.
Catherine continues in their footsteps, bringing a unique aesthetic of her own, blending old with new, incorporating rich-colored stones (tourmaline, rubies, sapphires, coral, colored diamonds) and high carat gold. She’s also built relationships with designers and artists around the world to bring her clients unique pieces and custom work. “Seeing the joy on their faces when we help them find that perfect piece…and knowing they will treasure it for years to come…that’s what makes me happy.”
