Runal Shah, Founder of Metal Noir
Runal Shah, a second generation fine jewelry designer and manufacturer with a foundation in diamond imports, founded Metal Noir in August of 2007. His inspiration for the creative direction when designing the introductory collections came from his experiences as a traveler.
What truly spoke to him during his travels was the Bauhaus movement, a modern movement at the Bahaus art school in Germany that combined crafts and the fine arts.
Metal Noir has become known for its elite craftsmanship and modern edge approach to fine jewelry design and manufacturing.
Masai Payan, the designer behind Metal Noir’s high fashion collection
Masai Payan merges progressive ideology and classic female sophistication to create a forward approach to fashion. His understanding of savior vivre is intrinsically connected with his diverse cultural background, and is clearly present in his designs.
He debuted his very first collection as a freshman in college at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California, which was a hit with the crowd. His collection went on to win the award of Faculty Favorite from The Art Institute of California – Hollywood, a title that he held until his final graduating show in 2011.
Masai Payan has been worn by celebrities such as Bella Thorne, Kathy Griffin, Janice Dickinson, Kristin Chenoweth, Heather Morris and most recently Chelsea Handler to the Elton John & Vanity Fair Oscar Events.
Metal Noir plans to revolutionize fine jewelry and women’s fashion by designing products with the highest quality and attention to detail.
Runal Shah has established a private client base of successful entrepreneurs and celebrities alike on an appointment only basis.
Along with being admired and favored by Hollywood’s hottest stars, Metal Noir also does what they can to give back by donating pieces for charity events.
Their creative process sets them apart from other jewelry and fashion lines
