A glimpse of Jewellery Arabia 2013

Three halls dipped in gold, silver and precious stones… For yet another year Jewellery Arabia had everything: From mythical collections brought by famous jewelry and watches’ houses to affordable bling bling or even copies of iconic jewelry…

My favorite was Bulgari’s pavilion.

Partly because it hit my “greek sensors”…

First it was the minimalistic dummies on which the beautiful jewelry was showcased and that would resemble figurines borrowed from a Cycladic Art museum.

Then, some of their jewelry showed clear influence from the ancient Mycenaean art. Just look and compare:

Is it my idea? Anyways, their jewelry was exceptional and unique.

Chopard had a beautiful pavilion too and is my favorite of all jewelry makers, but I believe their selection for the exhibition was limited, I can’t hide that I have seen better pieces -for my taste at least- when visiting their shops around the world. Nevertheless they had some really classy men’s watches.

And talking about men’s watches, Montblanc presented their newest collection, a tribute to Nicolas Rieussec, the inventor of the chronograph. Quite interesting.

Then the classic “Princess Grace” collection with watches, pens, and jewelry. Pure Grace.
