ABU DHABI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES – World Luxury Expo, Abu Dhabi, the third edition of the World Luxury Expo series, will be hosted at the magnificent Emirates Palace from 27-29 September 2013.
Illuminated under the magnificent Etihad Ballroom grand Swarovski chandelier of 1.8 tonnes, will be the splendid Rolls-Royce centrepiece, the main attraction and the ultimate statement in luxury and a celebration of timeless elegance and history.
Three hundred year old jewellery house, Mozafarian, will be showcasing a Royal Collection of exquisite casks to commemorate 2,500 years of the Persian Empire. The collection’s value is priceless as these are now part of the museum collection. The intricacy of work is extremely detailed as it involves the soldering of several thousand pieces by hand. In excess of over 4,000 grams of solid 18 carat gold provides a stunning setting for over 3,000 pieces of diamonds, rubies and sapphires.
Incorporating nature motifs in gold and precious stones encasing the Bohemian crystal casks required such attention that it took almost four years to be completed. This complicated technique that has now unfortunately been lost with the original craftsman who painstakingly created these exquisite creations it piece by piece.
Heritage is therefore a key word in understanding what the Mozafarian style is all about, acknowledges the veteran jeweller, Abbas Mozafarian, “Our unique style and designs have evolved through years of knowledge and experience. It has been perfected over the centuries and we have been fortunate to imbibe this wealth of expertise and craftsmanship that today gives us a sense of proportion, volume and design vocabulary.”
