SHARJAH, 3rd June, 2023 (WAM) -- The fourth edition of "Jewels of Emirates" Show currently taking place at the Expo Centre Sharjah has so far seen record footfall as it runs into its third consecutive day.
The event has received an overwhelming response from visitors, with exhibitors unveiling a stunning array of exclusive and rare jewellery pieces, showcasing the finest modern and heritage designs, exquisite gold works, and unique diamonds from around the world.
One of the highlights of the show was Jawhara Jewellery's launch of the burqa collection, which garnered first place in the world's most beautiful piece of jewellery for the Millennium Competition, organised by the "De Beers" Group.
Jawhara Jewellery also showcased a selection of modern designs inspired by Emirati heritage. These included Al Tablah and Shabasa pieces, along with the Dana collection, crafted from natural pearls.
In a bid to further entice attendees, the jeweler also offered various discounts, particularly on wedding jewellery and natural pearls.
Additionally, "Takat" Jewels made an impressive display of their collection of rare gemstones. The standout piece was a US$1 million ruby, as well as a distinctive emerald piece, deemed as one of only ten of its kind globally. Takat Jewels continued to dazzle attendees with an extraordinary emerald perfume bottle, valued at US$50,000.
Emirati designer Shamma Al Hallami, in partnership with Salem Al Shueibi Jewellery, also debuted her latest collection of 18-carat gold jewellery encrusted with precious ruby and topaz stones.
The creation of this stunning collection reportedly took approximately 400 man-hours.
