Mouawad, the luxury jewellery and timepieces company, and RAK Pearls Holding LLC, the only cultured pearls producer in GCC, present the first fruits of their collaboration at the Doha Jewellery and Watch Exhibition. Two magnificent diamond and pearls suites – the Flower of Immortality Suite and the Lunar Pearl Suite – combine the tradition and expertise of the two companies who cemented their collaboration in March 2012.
“Mouawad and RAK Pearls Holding have been working together over the last 12 months to design and produce jewellery and I am proud today to present our first releases”, commented Pascal Mouawad, Guardian of the Mouawad Retail Division. “Thanks to the expertise and ability of both companies, the exquisite suites combine the best diamonds and the highest quality pearls available in the Gulf.”
The Flower of Immortality Suite features an 18K white gold necklace, bracelet, earrings and ring set with 20.46 carats of verdant green emeralds surrounding gem quality white cultured pearls wrapped in rings and 15.24 carat rows of pristine white diamonds. This representation pays lasting tribute to the legend of Gilgamesh’s treasure, a pearl known as the Flower of Immortality that was lying at the bottom of the sea. This sea is believed by many scholars to have been the Arabian Gulf.
As a symbolic ode to the lunar pearl myth and to these naturally formed marvels, the artisans at Mouawad have crafted the Lunar Pearl Suite; a mesmerizing set of matching necklace, bracelet, ring and earrings all realized in 18K white and yellow gold intertwined with 59.13 carats blindingly white diamonds orbited by gem quality white cultured pearls. Light, power, romance and beauty are at once evoked in this stellar suite that radiates with joy and delicacy as if kissed by eternal moonlight.
“At Mouawad we believe in only using the finest quality gems and metals and we are delighted to have found a partner in RAK Pearls. With this collaboration we also mean to support the development of the pearl cultivation industry in the region where we have our roots”, concluded Pascal Mouawad.
Mr. Abdulla Rashed Al-Suwaidi, Vice Chairman & Managing Director of RAK Pearls Holdings L.L.C, said: “The Flower of Immortality Suite and the Lunar Pearl Suite really enhance the beauty of our finest pearls and we couldn’t be more satisfied with the fruits of this partnership. We look forward to extending the relationship with Mouawad and to designing together other exquisite jewellery pieces”.
Mr. Imura Daiji, Board Director and CEO of RAK Pearls Holdings L.L.C, added” Today’s event is a validation of our achievement story at RAK Pearls; we have successfully reintroduced the pearling industry with the latest technology and R&D from Japan to the UAE. These two magnificent suites are of the highest quality pearls, gems and craftsmanship accredited to our mutual collaboration and partnership with Mouawad”.
Mouawad’s exquisite arrays of Boutique Collections and Masterpieces on display at the DJWE are available in all Mouawad boutiques across the region, including the recently opened flagship showroom at Lagoona Mall in Doha.
