Halil Sartekin, born in 1959, studied philosophy at the University of Istanbul. He later moved to Switzerland, where he founded the company Kelim Jewellery Design with his wife Meral Sartekin in 1992. In the following years, they set up a studio in the heart of Istanbul with their nephews and soon designed their first creations, which they brought to life with great passion and creativity.

The family business quickly established itself on the national and international market and to this day offers a very good service to over 2000 satisfied customers in 35 countries. The timeless collections always present themselves in a simple, elegant form and never lose their playful component.

The Kelim jewellery collections are very harmonious in themselves; each piece of jewellery can be combined with other pieces from the collection or worn individually, regardless of the set. Most models are also available in 585 gold or gold-plated on request.
