The House of Garrard will showcase its new Wings Embrace designs exclusively with Ali Bin Ali Luxury at Galeries Lafayette Doha from December. Balancing iconic silhouettes with the most delicate shades of precious gemstone, new colours have been introduced in a fresh take on the much-loved designs, which epitomise effortless glamour.
Responding to demand, Garrard has enhanced Wings Embrace with new designs inspired by the iridescent colours cast as light passes through crystal. Pink and yellow sapphires and aquamarine catch the eye within the openwork of angel wings, which represent peace, purity and protection.
Calibre cut, the stones create a seamless shimmer of colour on one side. Turn the jewel around and the stones’ setting is beautiful, their pale tones perfectly matching white, rose or yellow gold. The overall effect is subtle and delicate. It adds grace to the angel wing’s symbolism, while balancing the design’s bold silhouette.
“Wings is both a beautiful and meaningful collection,” says Sara Prentice, Creative Director. “When we add to it we want to make sure any new jewels build on what we’ve already achieved. That’s why we’ve taken so much care in creating new Wings Embrace designs to incorporate the gemstones. The intricacy of the setting is part of what makes these new designs so special.”
Each piece features the double wing design of one laid over the other. Feathers are clearly defined by openwork set with round white diamonds, while the palest of gemstones flicker beneath. Choices include pendants as well as rings that flutter above the finger. A growing demand for earrings is answered by a selection of studs and hoops, offering more ways than ever to experience the feeling of being held within Wings Embrace.
“Garrard is extremely proud to be introducing these new designs in Qatar, exclusively in partnership with Ali Bin Ali Luxury,” comments Laura Peach, Global Sales Director. “The elegant Wings creations have been popular with the discerning, stylish women in the region ever since they first launched 16 years ago. The richness of symbolism in the collection makes them the perfect gift for significant occasions - modern in design, yet timeless in appeal.”
Awn Zureikat, COO of Ali Bin Ali Luxury, expressed his excitement on today’s event “as it marks once more the long–term partnership between Ali Bin Ali Luxury and House of Garrard”.
Visitors can access Garrard’s new Wings Embrace designs exclusively in the region from December 2019 at Ali Bin Ali Watches & Jewelry located in Galeries Lafayette Doha, 21 High st, Katara, as well as at the Ali Bin Ali Watches & Jewelry showrooms of Mall of Qatar and Royal Plaza mall.
