Stefan Hafner unveils Italian collection
Dubai, July 9, 2008
Renowned Italian jeweller Stefan Hafner has announced the launch of its Haute Couture Collection, which combines diamonds and multi-colour gems in white gold settings, in the Middle East.
Inspired by glamour and high style, the visionary brand offers sensational colliers, necklaces, stud earrings, drop earrings and rings blending elements of drama, opulence, and outstanding craftsmanship.
Founded in 1967 in Bologna, Stefan Hafner today has offices in Valenza and Bologna where its creative designers and master jewelers are based.
'Each jewel created in the Neo-Classic design tradition guarantees to put its wearer in the limelight. Dazzling diamonds and choice gems of various colours combine beautifully in white gold settings, paying grand tribute to the world of fashion,' said Tawhid Abdullah, managing director of Damas, the exclusive partner of Stefan Hafner in the Middle East.
'Stefan Hafner jewels are unique in many ways as they draw inspiration from several disciplines such as architecture, theatre, fashion, graphic design and photography, in addition to the rare talent of its goldsmiths.'
'Highly contemporary yet classic in essence, the latest pieces exude joy while heightening beauty. The Haute Couture collection once again displays the brand's expertise in creating something memorable from the choicest materials,' Abdullah said.
The Haute Couture Collection offers the 'Palzer' collier - a tantalizing piece resembling a stunning collar of diamond mesh.
Its interwoven base folds over a close ring in delicate triangles to present a dramatic ensemble fit for the red carpet. Prominent stud earrings match the opulence of the collier.
'The 'Marquise' floral necklaces, on the other hand, feature pretty blooms and buds fashioned in a blend of rubies, sapphires and white gold. Lavish and elaborate, the piece marries Stefan Hafner's fabulous artistry and love for detail.'
'Another enticing piece is its 'Colletti' necklace which offers a long and magnificently crafted jewel whose lower arch is richly encrusted with starry diamonds,' he added.
According to Abdullah, the piece-de-resistance of the Haute Couture collection is the 'Victoria Falls' collier - an exotic adornment featuring a multitude of diamonds and rainbow-colour gems designed to recall a glorious evening gown.
The piece shimmers magically while draping itself around its wearer's neck and flowing down in several drops at various levels. It is matched by large and stunning studs echoing the main motif.
These jewels are grand explorations of the exclusive world of haute couture and as such are timeless treasures to own and cherish. What makes them even more attractive is that they are lightweight even as they feature grand elaborate designs.
For over 40 years, Stefan Hafner has continued to enthrall jewellery lovers with its marvelous creations, inspired by themes as diverse as legendary art and the flowers.
For its outstanding achievements in jewellery design and craftsmanship, the brand has been recognised many times by prestigious bodies such as the American Jewellery Awards Gala and the Couture Design Collection Las Vegas.-TradeArabia News Service
