That Bling Thing

Few things say luxury like gold and diamonds, precious materials beloved of both jewellers and their customers. But, these days, it’s no longer enough just to display giant rocks, style-conscious clients want something a little different, to make them stand out from the crowd. These pieces will do just that.

Here Comes the Sun
Since her first collection of High Jewellery, which was presented in Basel in 2013, Valérie Messika has continued to chalk up success after success, with pieces characterised by unique diamond expertise, technical virtuosity and a resolutely contemporary feminine aesthetic. Currently much loved on the celebrity scene, her designs are contemporary with a touch of classic. This gorgeous bracelet from the Sun Tribe Collection is dazzling. 
Available through Asia Jewellers.

Inspired by Caligraphy
Think of diamonds and Graff is one of just a few names that spring to mind. The house is well-known for its amazing one-off creations but it also has an impressive set of collections that are perfect for the modern woman to show her individuality. The ‘Inspired by Twombly’ collection features high-quality diamonds in the shape of calligraphic paint strokes with scintillating spirals flowing playfully from one stone to the next.

Available through Bahrain Jewellery Centre.

The Ultimate Entanglement
The French Brand Akillis, founded by Caroline Gaspard in 2007, celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2017. It displays cutting-edge know-how in jewellery making and precision. Her workshops can handle any challenge presented. From creating a seamlessly smooth and rounded hollow bullet, to the intertwining titanium shapes of these Capture Me bracelets – perhaps the ultimate sign of commitment.
Available through Bahrain Jewellery Centre.

De Beers is another of those names that will be forever associated with diamonds, but the house is also known for the innovation of its design, such as in these beautiful butterfly rings which are sure to catch the eye, particularly if worn as multiples. 
Available through AJM Kooheji Group.

Artistic Collaboration
Rafrafa, the first of Devji Aurum’s Art Collection, launched in collaboration with renowned Bahraini sculptor and artist, Khalil Al Hashimi. Inspired by the artist’s monumental bird sculpture, the collection is a translation of an iconic dialogue between the colossal world of sculpture and the delicate world of jewellery, handcrafted in 18k gold and diamonds. Available at Devji Aurum boutiques and Devji Since 1950.
