Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Exhibitors have pulled out all the stops at this year’s 20th Dubai International Jewellery Week with designers showcasing many world firsts at the event.
Million dollar luxury clock
A luxury clock by Moiseikin Jewellery worth a staggering one million dollars and weighing in at over 65kg is just one of the show-stopping items at the event, which runs until 12 December. Over 2,000 diamonds and a kilogram worth of gold have been used in the design. What’s more, the exhibitor is also showcasing for the first time patented technology for a new inventory setting for jewels. Instead of the traditional prongs to hold the jewels in place, these have now been removed using innovative techniques, which allow the gems to ‘move’ in their settings, creating even more sparkle for the wearer.
Rarest pearls in the world
Pearls are certainly in vogue at the Yoko Jewellery stand, with the exhibitor being proud to showcase some of the rarest and largest gems in the world. Ranging in value from USD5,000 to USD1 million, these beautiful jewels have been carefully sourced from fresh water oysters. Catering to popular demand, shoppers can choose from a range of rare pink pearls and classic items on display.
50K yellow diamond worth USD3 million
A 50K diamond by Mahallati Jewellery is wowing visitors at the stand, which is worth a staggering USD3 million. The beautiful yellow diamond is part of their dazzling range, which starts from just $500. In a departure to typical jewellery items, each piece has identical coloured gems running throughout, which the designers have carefully hand-selected to ensure greater continuity.
A rainbow of gems at affordable prices
With prices ranging from 99 cents to $99, Colombin Stone Co,. LTD.is providing a range of fashion accessories at affordable prizes. With a range of gems including rubies, sapphires and emeralds, this colourful display enables the shopper to design their own piece – with the shopper selecting their jewels and then the chain or ring for it to be set in.
Blinged out consumer electronics
A jewel encrusted iPhone 6 case by Formatti, as well as a glittering docking station to play music, shows that jewellery design does not only have to be an item you can wear. As a world-first, these sparking pieces, which have been hand-crafted, start from just USD400, with some of the most luxurious, intricate designs priced at USD2,500.
Resurgence of elegant diamond jewellery
Diamond encrusted chokers were just some of the items on offer at exhibitor Suzanne Kalan’s stand. These items complement the wearer’s outfit and neckline, support the hottest trends in innovative jewellery that is fashionable yet simple
