Javid's father started the Noori family jewellery business in the 1950s. From a very young age Javid sat in his father's workshop, watching and learning his art. Forced to flee to Pakistan during the time of the Taliban, Javid's family returned to Afghanistan in 2002 and he set up one of the best-equipped workshops in the country. Gaining a reputation for working only with Afghanistan's finest gemstones, Javid's business thrived, and in 2008 he began working closely with international jewellery designer Pippa Small. Javid is committed to supporting Afghanistan's next generation of jewellers, teaching part time at the Turquoise Mountain Institute and offering apprenticeships in his own workshop for the most promising emerging talents.
