Early life and education
Kabirski was born on June 30, 1964, as the second child in a family of medical doctors. He spent his early years in Makhachkala, Dagestan. He always appreciated art and liked to draw, but his parents didn’t take this hobby seriously and hoped he would take a scientific or medical career path. German wasn’t a good student at school and found school life boring. He left school after eighth grade for an art college.
At first, German enjoyed his new alma mater, its teachers, and the students with whom he could share his interest in art. Still, later, he realized that there was not much space for creativity and originality, so he quit college and was immediately recruited by the regular Russian army for compulsory military service. After two years in the military, he returned to his hometown, applied to the Dagestan State University, and in five years, received his higher education diploma as an economist.
Combining his knowledge of economics and art, German started his professional career by launching a traditional Lezgi carpet store and, later, a jewelry factory. Working in the traditional jewelry business, he soon realized that it might benefit from unconventional design solutions and techniques – and this is when his experimenting with metal textures, casting, and stone settings started. German Kabirski as a brand was born in 2000 when these experiments helped create a new collection that was introduced in many jewelry exhibitions and received many awards.
Since then, Kabirski has continued designing contemporary art jewelry using both traditional and non-traditional materials like wood, bones, and pebbles. Most recently, he introduced the rough gemstone "stain glass" technique that proved popular in the US market. The artist works mainly with 925 silver, rhodium or gold plated with genuine stones, such as rubies, sapphires, tourmalines, topaz, citrine, amethyst, aquamarine, etc.

Birthstone is regarded as special gemstone based on the month of birth or the zodiac sign of the person. With regard to his birthstones collection, Kabirski works towards curating jewelry designs depending on the birth month and their subsequent gemstones such as spinel or peridot for August, Topaz for December, and garnet for January.
