Philippe Salame was born in Lebanon and raised in Paris, so was surrounded by design from very early in his youth. In 1986, his path led him to New York City where he launched Versani Jewelry, continuing on to launch globally recognised brand By Boe Jewellery. It was the success of this line that truly put Philippe on the map. Still longing to pursue his dream of creating a universal, comprehensive jewellery line, Philippe left By Boe in 2011 and created By Philippe. The collection varies from clean, crisp, and delicate pieces to flashy bold designs.
