High Jewelry Made a Big Impact at Paris Couture Week

Haute couture is one-of-a-kind creations crafted from the finest materials by skilled artisans using century-old techniques. Haute couture had humble beginnings. In 1858, an English couturier, Charles Frederick Worth, established the first haute couture house in Paris championing exclusive luxury fashion for the upper-class woman and coining the term “fashion designer” in lieu of the basic dressmaker. Today, haute couture is still synonymous with high-quality materials and workmanship. And when haute couture meets haute joaillerie (high jewelry), the result is transformative! The jewelry becomes an extension of the designer’s vision for his or her collection creating a complete story – one that is truly a work of art!

GIAMBATTISTA VALLI AND ELEUTERI:

Giambattista Valli accessorized his haute couture collection, comprising of ethereal tulle gowns, draped silk chiffon dresses and embellished minis with exquisite vintage jewels from Eleuteri. The jewels focused mainly on bracelets featuring a glorious 1950s French amethyst and turquoise piece as well as a intricate jade and gold design from David Webb and several Tubogas wristwatches from Bulgari.

GUO PEI AND CHOPARD:

The Chinese designer made a name for herself when she dressed singer Rihanna in yellow couture for the MET’s “China through the Looking Glass” gala and red carpet. For her haute couture collection, she collaborated with Chopard paying homage to the golden era of haute couture and Hollywood icons of the 50s. The results were a perfect fusion of Chinese and Western cultures, high fashion and exquisite jewels.

The deep jewel toned hues of Pei’s dresses paired effortlessly with Chopard’s the Silk Road collection, which featured an emerald bib necklace, diamond and pearl drop earrings and an amethyst pendant necklace. The Chopard jewels complemented the opulence and extravagance of Pei’s couture collection perfectly.

GET THE LOOK: DAY TO NIGHT WITH MIKE JOSEPH JEWELLERY, AZZA SHOWROOM BAHRAIN

During Jewellery Arabia Bahrain 2018 I had an opportunity to create jewellery looks from hundreds of stunning jewels on display in Azza Showroom: the top showroom for fine and contemporary jewellery designers in the Middle East led and curated by Azza Al-Hujairi.

I have been fascinated by the Armenian jewellery designer Mike Joseph since I first tried on his second skin jewellery creations during Couture 2016. And how lucky I was to get a chance to style a whole outfit with rose and black gold jewellery designs from his Bubble collection in Bahrain! In this rare case I specifically picked clothes in order not to overpower the jewellery: a chic De La Vali dress, Aquazzura high heels, a classic Chanel bag and Jimmy Choo sunglasses. With certain pieces of jewellery you want to feel playful and to wear light materials such as silk.

The jewels of Mike Joseph feel like second skin: they fit fluidly by replicating organic shapes of feminine curves. Wearing 18k rose and black gold diamond rings, bracelet and fabulous earrings makes me feel light, precious and … genuinely happy! Jewellery styling tip of the look: if you’re wearing simple, yet elegant jewels don’t be afraid to go for the full set, just like I added a final touch with a matching double layer choker by Mike Joseph Jewellery glistering with white diamonds.

GET THE LOOK: SPIRITUAL CONNECTION WITH TH’HABA JEWELRY

I have been longing to explore more jewellery with deep spiritual symbolism, and as luck would have it, the universe has recently rewarded me. A wonderful Kuwaiti jewellery designer and architect in one, Abrar Al Ebrahim, shared the story behind her Th’haba Jewelry and presented me with an opportunity to choose from the delicate jewels from her THAMANIYA and YIELD collections to create an otherworldly look.

My feelings from wearing jewellery with such powerful symbolism inspired me to create a completely white outfit with a feather-like flowing white Teatum Jones dress. I was like a portal open to receive the universal energy and Th’haba Jewelry was enabling this positive energy to flow!

Gazing at the two-finger ring from THAMANIYA collection on my hand I’m suddenly struck with a realisation that it is the accurate representation of a pyramid! The name of the collection itself means eight in Arabic and pays homage to the initial 8-sided design of ancient Egyptian pyramids. Number 8 itself has a strong spiritual reference to infinity and the peak state.

The designer Abrar Al Ebrahim was inspired by the energy she experienced inside a pyramid, when she was on spiritual journey in Egypt. The open disconnected hoop style earrings, the delicate bangle bracelet and the splendid choker that I am wearing are all crafted from 18 kt yellow gold adorned with a brilliant diamond on top of each pyramid structure.

“THAMANIYA collection is a salute to how an 8-sided entity can create a portal, where you are elevated if you use it properly. And 8 is the number you should use for that. Even in the Quran there is a phrase meaning the throne of God is carried by eight. Even in the Quran there is correlation to the number 8 and its spirituality” – Abrar Al Ebrahim

To complete my look I chose one of the rings with Arabic lettering from Th’haba YIELD collection. Translated as “Yield and Surrender”, both words essentially have the same meaning. However, one is to give in for spiritual reason and the other for external reason. During my book-signing and Q&A event in Bahrain we discussed the art of jewellery self-expression. I believe that ring should have a personal meaning. And it is exactly what the “Yield and Surrender” ring is designed for: when the wearer looks at it, he reflects on his current state and decides whether to surrender and let it go or to surrender and let himself go…

GET THE LOOK: NATURE ORNAMENTS WITH LUISA ROSAS, AZZA SHOWROOM BAHRAIN

During Jewellery Arabia Bahrain I had an opportunity to create jewellery looks from hundreds of stunning jewels on display in Azza Showroom: the top showroom for fine and contemporary jewellery designers in the Middle East led and curated by Azza Al-Hujairi.

We are all hippies at heart, so Luisa Rosas’ divine, nature-resembling jewellery was just perfect to create a 70s inspired outfit. With the help of Adriana Degreas trousers and top, gold-plated Elie Saab glasses and sparkly flats by Pretty Ballerinas I am ready to embrace the celebration of life.

A flower child look wouldn’t be complete without this beautiful gold tiara and diamond cuff earrings from Luisa Rosas SKIN collection of reversible gold jewellery. Adding a natural touch with texture gold jewellery, these two ESSENCE collection rings represent the wood and the stone elements. Jewellery styling tip of this outfit: put on Luisa Rosas bracelet and yellow gold diamond pendant from the TRIBE collection to show you’re one with the universe!

“A piece of jewellery can totally change or complete your look and communicate who you are. If you choose to wear a super minimalist piece of jewellery or a more traditional one, it changes the way people see you and for sure the way you feel” – Luisa Rosas.

GET THE LOOK: DAINTY JEWELS OF L’ATELIER NAWBAR, AZZA SHOWROOM BAHRAIN

During Jewellery Arabia Bahrain I had an opportunity to create jewellery looks from hundreds of stunning jewels on display in Azza Showroom: the top showroom for fine and contemporary jewellery designers in the Middle East led and curated by Azza Al-Hujairi.

Colour is powerful: it inspires us, it reflects our mood and gives us endless opportunities for self-expression! I loved styling Ekaterina Kukhareva orange dress with playful contemporary jewels of L’atelier Nawbar. I especially liked the unusual translucent amber ring. I accentuated my look with voluminous curls.

Last year, L’atelier Nawbar stole my heart at Azza Showroom. The new collection is even more playful with a dazzling array of shapes and colours offering unlimited creativity. My jewellery styling tip for this look is: mix and match! Layer your necklaces with several colours and shapes from Amulets of Light and Cosmic Love collections, pair them with cute little jacket earrings and matching rings. With L’atelier Nawbar you have plenty of colour choices! Hard work, ongoing creativity and talent ensures that L’atelier Nawbar offers sparkling every day treasures that modern girls are all about!

GET THE LOOK: AFRICAN HEART OF VANLELES DIAMONDS, AZZA SHOWROOM BAHRAIN

During Jewellery Arabia Bahrain I had an opportunity to create jewellery looks from hundreds of stunning jewels on display in Azza Showroom: the top showroom for fine and contemporary jewellery designers in the Middle East led and curated by Azza Al-Hujairi.

In my everyday life, when I am not in front of the camera I am usually wearing casual but chic black outfits. So I thought: “Why not incorporate it in my GET THE LOOK?”  I chose a gorgeous, not-so-little black dress by Zeynep Kartal and styled it with special African-inspired fine jewellery by Vanleles Diamonds London. Jewellery styling tip of the look: if you’re wearing totally black outfit, don’t forget about adding a colourful accent with jewellery!

For this look I have picked mesmerising matching pink pendant and earrings from Love, My African Heart collection paying homage to designer’s roots and deep appreciation of African heritage. Crafted from ethically sourced Mozambican rubies and pure white diamonds, these earrings are a true pleasure to wear. And the pendant gradient just makes the gemstones look as if they have always belonged together in nature! So organically exquisite!

“I think luxury should be what makes you happy and a more mindful human being. When it comes to jewellery and why it should matter is because jewellery tells a story of the most important milestones in one’s life. People buy fine jewellery to celebrate and achievement, love and life. And it lasts forever…a heirloom to be treasured for generations to come” – Vania Leles, founder & designer of Vanleles Diamonds.

GET THE LOOK: TOURMALINE HEAVEN WITH SILVIA FURMANOVICH, AZZA SHOWROOM BAHRAIN

During Jewellery Arabia Bahrain I had an opportunity to create jewellery looks from hundreds of stunning jewels on display in Azza Showroom: the top showroom for fine and contemporary jewellery designers in the Middle East led and curated by Azza Al-Hujairi.

My definition of a special night out outfit? Elegant, matching colours, and show-stopping! That’s why I paired matching blue Delpozo top and sequin skirt with Silvia Furmanovich jewellery from her extraordinary marquetry Botanica collection that captures the spiritual essence of the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest in all its beauty and splendour. Earlier this year, I was very honoured to become the face of that collection, travelling to Sao Paulo to shoot the campaign.

If you’re wondering how to wear statement earrings for the evening look, scroll down for inspiration! Also pay attention the emeralds in Silvia Furmanovich unique marquetry clutches.

The pink accents on my sequin skirt highlight the beauty of tourmaline rings that I am wearing. Brazil is one of the four significant deposits of tourmalines in the world, which adds an extra character to Silvia Furmanovich earrings, marquetry begonia bracelet and green and rubellite tourmaline rings that I am wearing.

GET THE LOOK: SASSI FINE JEWELLERY FOR SASSY WOMEN, AZZA SHOWROM BAHRAIN

During Jewellery Arabia Bahrain I had an opportunity to create jewellery looks from hundreds of stunning jewels on display in Azza Showroom: the top showroom for fine and contemporary jewellery designers in the Middle East led and curated by Azza Al-Hujairi.

Sassi Fine Jewellery is an emerging jewellery brand with a well-researched story behind every jewel. I have styled my look with the beautiful amethyst and peridot rings from Secret of Berenice collection. It is named after the Egyptian Queen Berenice, who fell in love with an extraordinary lime-green stone, later called a peridot, found on a distant island by an Egyptian explorer. The people behind the collection imagined that she combined the warm green peridot with an intense purple amethyst.

My favourite creations from Secret of Berenice collection are the transformable jewellery pieces. This playful square pendant can be adjusted to fit your mood by moving the stones in a puzzle-like fashion, while the rings can open up and become round pendants! I have paired them with a green dress by Agua De Coco, Aquazzura shoes of earthly tones and pink eyeliner to add a quirky colour accent to this elegant every day jewellery look.

“A beautiful piece will bring you joy, like wearable art, and later… hand it over to your own daughter, who will cherish it again. How many objects of luxury have this timelessness? A nice handbag, a designer coat… all of these will eventually become less attractive, outdated and used. Jewellery, however, is there to stay. Invest in pieces you really love, jewels that capture your personality, go for your own style” – Renilde Vervoort, Sassi Fine Jewellery

GET THE LOOK: AZZA FINE JEWELLERY, JEWELLERY ARABIA BAHRAIN

During Jewellery Arabia Bahrain I had an opportunity to create jewellery looks from hundreds of stunning jewels on display in AZZA SHOWROOM: the top showroom for fine and contemporary jewellery designers in the Middle East led and curated by Azza Al-Hujairi.

Azza herself is not only the showroom founder, but also a talented jewellery designer, who presented a new collection during Jewellery Arabia exhibition in Bahrain. Azza Fine Jewellery new collection is minimalist in style and is all about layering. This trend is currently en vogue and complements both elegant everyday wear and stunning evening looks. Of course, I took my chance to create the perfect look with her elegant jewels before they were to find their beautiful owners among visitors of the biggest jewellery event in the Middle East.

As you might know, my love for Brazilian fashion designers is insatiable. Matching skirt and top by Adriana Degreas were absolutely perfect for our delicious lunch at my favourite space in town, La Fontaine Centre for Contemporary Art & Spa, just before heading to the opening of Jewellery Arabia Bahrain.

I styled my look with three elegant gold chokers embellished with diamonds and emeralds from Azza Fine Jewellery latest collection. Their minimalist design creates the perfect delicate layered necklace on my neck, which otherwise would have looked overdone with chokers of larger size.

Hoops have suddenly stormed the jewellery scene once again. I personally enjoy wearing large statement earrings, but these dainty pear-cut aquamarine hoop earrings instantly stole my heart: they are just so fun to play with! Jewellery styling tip of the look: think outside the box and decorate hoops with your favourite flowers for a day just like I did.

The sunglasses are essential finishing touch to any outfit in the land of 25°C the whole year round! I like to think that these gold-plated sunglasses by Elie Saab were inspired by the shape of pearl, one of my favourite gemstones in the world. How appropriate for Bahrain, the country with deep-rooted heritage of natural pearls jewellery craftsmanship!

GET THE LOOK: AS SEEN IN VOGUE BRAZIL

I am sure you haven’t forgotten my excitement about the making of Silvia Furmanovich jewellery campaign for the new Botanica collection in Sao Paulo. I was not only modelling but also art directing the shoot. I had an opportunity to create several striking jewellery looks from the stunning jewels of Silvia Furmanovich and I’m happy to say it was a hit!

This green Amazonia look is one of my favourite recent looks! You have probably noticed I have my hair loose all the time. Even though I never put my hair up, I absolutely loved this particular hairstyle. Inspired by divine Brazilian nature I felt it was in tune with 3 dimensional forms of Silvia Furmanovich earrings from the Botanica collection.

Here I am wearing one of the best Brazilian designer brand Paula Raia in incredible green hues – in line with Brazilian DNA of the shoot. The open back top has a beautiful and delicate design in light green colour, which goes perfectly with the skirts’s darker shade of green.

If I was asked what was my favourite design from Botanica SF, I would have a hard time answering. What I can say for sure is that I didn’t want to take off these 18k gold orchid earrings encrusted with diamonds and a rubellite in the center! Light as feather and carefully crafted with signature Silvia Furmanovich marquetry technique, they add a tropical touch to any look.
