DUBAI, December 3, 2016

As the UAE buzzes with festive atmosphere following its 45th National Day celebration, prominent Dubai-based jewellers are preparing to showcase extraordinary collections paying tribute to Arabic culture and the country’s core values at Dubai International Jewellery Week.

To be held from December 7 to 10, the Dubai International Jewellery Week will showcase more than 10,000 jewellery designs from around the world. The annual event is open to public, said the organisers Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC).

Renowned for its unique calligraphic jewellery, Quais by Mehwish Allawala, will present hand-made luxury sets and home decorative pieces bearing Arabic and Quranic inscriptions at the event.

Mehwish Jawad Allawala, the director and owner at Quais said: "We will be exhibiting unique, elegant pieces that reflect the virtues of pure mysticism and act as a medium for depicting the Arab values of love and harmony to the world."

Handcrafted with 925 sterling silver and 21K gold-plating, each piece is inscribed with a narrative inspired by Arabic and Quranic scriptures and comes with an artisan card that features a translation for each engraving.

"Our collections, featuring both formal and casual jewellery as well as home décor treasures are inscribed with meaningful, metaphorical stories influenced by mystical culture and embrace the ethos of elegance balanced with function, form and beauty," remarked Mehwish.

Also presenting pieces inspired by local culture is Dhamani Jewels, one of the region's largest wholesalers of precious stones and high-end diamond sets designer, famous for their creation of a million-dollar hat adorned with fancy diamonds in 2011.

Rohit Dhamani, the director (wholesale and manufacturing) at Dhamani Jewels said: "We will launch some of our most outstanding pieces of jewellery that represent the high values of Arabic culture and are inspired by Dubai’s cosmopolitan, multi-cultural edge."

With decades of local market experience under his belt,  Dhamani said the UAE’s strive for excellence and progress has had a major impact on his company and motivated his brand to create an exclusive category of products.

“Our collection of fine jewellery sets reflect what the UAE means to us: the epitome of elegance, prosperity, peace and harmony. For example, our choice of white, solitaire diamonds is inspired by the strength and solidarity of the country’s leadership while interwoven diverse cuts and colours of diamonds represent its diversity, prosperity, and happiness,” he remarked.

Thw company’s exclusive collection will feature fancy yellow diamond sets made of 18K white and yellow gold, studded with a variety of cuts, including pear, marquise, round and cushion.-TradeArabia News Service
