JEWELLERY EXPERTS REVEAL ‘HAUTEST’ TRENDS

JEWELLERY EXPERTS REVEAL ‘HAUTEST’ TRENDS

From royal designs to healing gemstones: Middle East’s most influential

jewelleryshowputs spotlight on latest trends

 

Royal designs, rare diamond cutsand holistic talks were the centrepiece of attention for the thousands of stylish visitors who attended Dubai International Jewellery Week 2016, which concluded today (Saturday 10 December).

 

Returning to the show atthe Dubai World Trade Centre was Lebanese designer NsouliJewelry, whowelcomed to their booth a vast numbers of visitors enchanted by the jeweller’scollection of striking chokers.

 

NsouliJewelry’s Dania Nsouli said:“Currently rose gold is extremely high in demand and our collection of royal chokers is a direct response to that growing trend.”

 

Featuring high quality, hand-picked diamonds individually set in 18K rose gold,each choker takes around one month to six weeks to manufacture in the jeweller’s Belgian office.

“Chokers are on rise now and we’re very proud to showcase our renowned Belgian diamond cutto Middle Eastern collectors. One of our most striking pieces weighs 107.28g and features 58.32ct white diamonds, famous for their high quality in clarity and colour.”

 

Royal design jewellery lovers were also spoiled for choice at theItalian HasbaniGioielli S.p.A.stand, which showcased several sapphire and diamond engagement rings resembling the style of jewellery worn by Princess Diana.

 

Joseph Hasbani, owner at HasbaniGioielli S.p.A., said: “In recent years we have witnessed almost a 15 per cent increase in demand for sapphire engagement rings. My personal guess would be that all girls want to feel like princesses and for that very reason there isn’t much interest in rubies or emeralds.”

 

Hand-crafted in Italy and showing off a distinctive oval-shaped sapphire,one of the largest Hasbani ringsfeatures a sophisticated set of multiple diamondslinked individually, makingita flexible piece.

 

Hasbani added: “Sapphires are usually featured with diamonds because the stone doesn’t stand out much alone, so it needs to be surrounded by diamonds to enhance its colour and The Duchess of Cambridge’s ringis precisely designed in this classic manner.”

Also attracting scores of visitors at the show was Solitaire Jewels from the USA, who brought to Dubai unique collections of stacked bracelets made of mixed precious metals adorned with a vast variety of diamond cuts and colours.

AlokKrishnani,owner at Solitaire Jewels from the USA, said: “Stacking bracelets is currently a very popular trend as people who already have their own jewellery look for new designs to mix it withand it appeals to their individualistic and experimental needs.

 

“We’ve witnessed a lot of interest in our ‘Messie’ collection that showcases unique, hand-cut diamonds with no two precious stones alike – every single diamond is different, featuring various colours and shapes, and set in a versatile band.”

 

In addition to jewellery lovers seeking individualistic expression and ways toenhance their looks, many visitors showed great interest in the daily workshops, “Discover the World of Gemstones”, led by Mariam Yasin, Holistic Therapist and Founder of Wellness Lifestyle blog Inner Beauty Buzz.

 

Yasin said: “People think more and more about well-being and I was very pleased to recognise some faces from last year’s show as it clearly shows that my sessions were impactful and provided them with some new insights.

 

“We’re all here because of jewellery and sharing my knowledge about more specific qualities of gemstones that can affect many aspects of our lives is very appealing because it empowers people with knowledge that allows themto choose what jewellery suits them best.”

 

The 21stedition of Dubai International Jewellery Week drew to a close on Saturday 10 Decembergathering 240leading jewellery brands, jewellery enthusiasts, collectors, designers, and retailers from around the world to launch their latest collections at the Middle East region’s most influential jewellery event.

US$2MILLION RARE GEMSTONE ON DISPLAY AT DUBAI INETRNATIONAL JEWELLERY WEEK

US$2MILLION RARE GEMSTONE ON DISPLAY AT DUBAI INETRNATIONAL JEWELLERY WEEK

Investment incoloured gemstones is on rise, industry insider says

 

The world’s purest and second largest Russian Alexandrite gemstone is now available on sale at Dubai International Jewellery Week for a cool US$2million.

 

The stone, which weighs 9.65cts, has been certified by GemResearchSwisslab (GRS) and Swiss Foundation for the Research of Gemstones (SSEF).  It has already attracted a lot of interest from visitors to the four day shopping extravaganza, with a number of people expressing an interest in how it could be set into a unique ring or necklace design.

 

Thought to be named in honour of Tsar Alexander II, Alexandrite stones are only found in five countries – Russia, Brazil, India, Sri Lanka and Madagascar – but the Russian version is considered the rarest and shows off the most dramatic colour changes from blue to purple to red when placed under different lights.

 

Zaheer Ansari, Director of Noor Gems Japan Ltd. andZals Ltd., has brought the stone to Dubai International Jewellery Week due to the increased demand from investors for rare coloured gemstones.  He is hoping to educate the show’s visitors at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) about the vast opportunities an investment in precious stones can offer.

 

He said: “My family has been importing and exporting the most rare, precious gemstones for generations and there’s no safer and more lucrative means of investment I could recommend.Coloured stone prices always go up with time and within 30 years a value of unique alexandrites, paraibas, spinelscan multiple by up to 50 times.”

 

“Alexandrite is currently very popular, particularly among collectors in Japan, China, Russia and the USA, and we believeDubai International Jewellery Week allows us to show off this incredible stone to jewellery lovers as well as demonstrate to the GCC jewellery retailersthat they can improve their businesses by expanding their collections beyond diamonds, emeralds, andrubies.”

 

The 21stedition of Dubai International Jewellery Week enjoyed a successful start on Wednesday as major jewellery brands, jewellery enthusiasts, collectors, designers, and retailers from around the world gathered in Dubai to launch their latest collections at the Middle East region’s most influential jewellery event.

 

Throughout the four-day show, the Dubai Municipality is hosting an on-site mobile gemstone testing laboratory where visitors can receive expert real-time advice on the quality and authenticity of their gemstones and precious metals.
