Originally from London, Ella Mai moved to New York City at the age of 12, before returning to England after graduating from Queens High School of Teaching in Glen Oaks, Queens.

The six-track EP included the single, “She Don’t”, which featured Ty Dolla Sign.
Ella released her second EP, “Change”, in November 2016 and third, “Ready”, in February 2017.
Ella Mai toured with Kehlani on her SweetSexySavage World Tour.
On April 26, 2018, she released a music video for “Boo’d Up” after it unexpectedly started to gain popularity.

When Leon Tufenkijan found himself making fine jewellery in his attic in 1909, little did he know history was about to be made.
A young, hardworking man whose uncompromising nature and profound craftsmanship to create jewels is driven by a deep reverence, Leon Tufenkijan opened his first shop in the historical Beirut Gold Souk.
From its very first collections, his humble creations marked the beginning of a marvelous journey that welcomed his three sons who later united their forces under “Tufenkijan Freres”.
