Mike Saati, the founder of Mike Joseph, was born into a family of jewellers. As a teenager, jewellery making was just a hobby, but over time it became a more serious pursuit. In his 20s, Mike took up an apprenticeship for several years so that he could practice the art of setting diamonds and coloured gemstones into precious metals. After this, Mike started his own business with his brother Joseph, which has grown exponentially over time. In 2015, he won first runner-up in the ‘Gold Below $20,000’ category at the Couture Design Awards competition in Las Vegas, and in 2016 the brothers launched their eponymous brand, Mike Joseph Jewellery.
