There is a scarcity of research carried out on jewellery with Islamic Geometric Patterns (IGPs) designs and their making processes, even though these patterns are widely used and researched in architecture. Recent research is limited in the jewellery making methods, lacks validated qualitative data, and lacks quantitative data. IGPs consist of a specific structure, processes, and philosophy. Since the Umayyad caliphate till the present day, IGPs’ application is focused on architecture and interior decoration, featuring traditional symmetrical, colourful, and intricate designs. Despite the potential market of two billion Muslims worldwide, the use of IGPs in jewellery products is less explored. In the recent scenario, the making process of jewellery products comprises of modern machinery and traditional manual processes which produce different outcomes in quality and value. Furthermore, the success of a design-based business relies on the involvement in new product development (NPD) to produce a marketable product. Hence, this paper discusses IGPs, particularly on the characteristic of the motifs, criteria and requirements for product development, the scenario of issues, and the making process for jewellery. Comparative research was conducted on three previous scholarly papers that study IGPs to design jewellery. The research outcome will enhance the understanding of the specific methods currently practiced in the making process, as well as determine the areas that need to be explored for future research. It will aid in improving the IGPs design concept for jewellery product development.
