Misahara is a fine jewelry house that pays tribute to the warm, shimmering waters of the Adriatic Sea, the golden sand of the Sahara Desert as well as other mesmerizing destinations in the world that its designer, Lepa Galeb-Roskopp is inspired from. Misahara creations are handmade in New York and London by experienced ateliers who have worked with some of the world's most prestigious jewelry houses. The collections evoke the feeling of exquisite luxury, channeling a ‘desinvolte and suave’ flare marked by unique handcraftsmanship and the finest quality gemstones. Behind each and every piece lies a significant source of inspiration and a unique story inspired by the pristine elements of nature.
Designer, Lepa Galeb-Roskopp, embodies the essence of the house of Misahara. Her bi-cultural heritage is a dominant force in how she births her opulent creations, while instilling subtle overtones of mother nature and cultures that have provided inspiration in her travels. Misahara has established home with a flagship boutique in New York at the Plaza hotel and a 'treasure boudoir' in Porto Montenegro, where the creative energy of the brand is anchored. In the Fall of 2015 Misahara was embraced by Neiman Marcus with a presence in Palo Alto, California and Palm Beach, Florida as well as a newer retail location in the heart of London.
Our mission is to create a company that honors our vision and places our pieces in the discerning hands of those that choose to live life to its fullest. The traditions and inspirations of the past and present are our guideposts for creating a company that stands the test of time and creates art that lasts an eternity. All this is reflected in our Unity symbol, which is inscribed on our pieces. The Unity symbol reminds all of us at Misahara of the principles that guide us, and to our obligation to ourselves and to the world to be the best we can be… not just in our craft, but in life. As such, wherever we are in business, we work with local children’s charities to help care for those that cannot care for themselves. Remembering the past, working on the present, building for the future – this is Unity, and that is who we are at Misahara.
Lepa Galeb-Roskopp, head designer of Misahara jewelry, was born into a bi-cultural milieu allowing her to experience different places around the world capturing the essence, landscape and colors of each town. She has created her own culture of creativity with her jewelry collections—a unique voice that is anchored in creative excellence.
Lepa’s passion for the out-of-doors is apparent in many of her designs where nature’s bountiful elements co-exist with her choice of metals, gemstones and colors. She has an eye that captures the history, the sea and the landscape of each country with a passionate heart that captures the colors, the textures and the spirit of each town -- all beautifully sculpted in the jewelry she designs.
The Balkans — a place she considers ‘home’ and the epicenter of her rich heritage, inspire her creative process and give the brand a unique flair in fine jewelry. “Growing up, the Adriatic region was such a magical place and I loved going there as a child with my family. Now, we bring our children there so they can experience the many natural beauties that Montenegro has to offer. It is a place where my soul and inner creative eye comes alive.”
