Mesih Iskander began trading in gold currency along with precious commodities by purchasing directly from gold mines as a source and exporting them to England during the Ottoman-ruled Iraq. Half a century later, his son- “Mohammed Mesih Iskander” being mentored by his father continued his interest in building forward the family business by moving toward the establishment of Adnan Jewellery in 1955.

Later towards the 1960’s, he was appointed as the Chief Value Officer by the Central Government of Iraq.
In the decades which followed, with the success of Adnan Jewellery, Mohammed Mesih expanded its horizons globally in Spain, United States of America, Canada, Kuwait in 1968 and Lebanon in1972 and a Jewelry Manufacturing Factory in Hong Kong during the 1980’s.
