Mouawad has partnered with Emirati fine jewellery designer, Salama Khalfan to create an extraordinary headpiece set.
Featuring diamonds and emeralds set by the hands of master Mouawad craftsmen the design pays tribute to the date palm tree for its special place at the heart of culture and life in the Gulf region.
Fourth-generation Mouawad Co-Guardians Fred, Alain and Pascal Mouawad commented, “It has been a great pleasure to collaborate with Salama Khalfan on creating an extraordinary object of beauty and adornment, knowing that we both share a passion for timeless sophistication and incredible gemstones. This collaboration is particularly meaningful, with the design paying tribute to the nature and culture of the Middle East.”
The headpiece features diamonds placed in rivulets on the headpiece in a design that is inspired by the traditional weaving of dried date palm leaves, while palm leaf motifs are situated around the crown as a symbol of respect and pride for this cultural emblem.
The Mouawad X Salama Khalfan headpiece will be showcased during Abu Dhabi Art, which is held under the patronage His Highness Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Member of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council, Chairman of Abu Dhabi Executive Office, and will take place from 17 – 21 November 2021, at Manarat Al Saadiyat.
