Born from a personal pact between Farah Malik and Dana Arbib as they themselves describe, A Peace Treaty is a New York based jewellery brand inspired by the hand-craft traditions of the Middle-East, Asia, South America and Africa.
Titled Neteret meaning goddess in ancient Egyptian, the designs presented for A/W 2012 explored the traditional jewellery of the Pharaohs in a wonderfully achieved collection.
