What: Emilia Sitjar Jew­ellery trunk show

Where: Azuela Cove Res­i­dences Show­room

Who came: Jew­elry lovers and col­lec­tors

It’s the an­nual jew­elry trunk show of the old­est jew­elry store in Davao. For the 2018 show, the third in their se­ries, the theme was “The El­e­ments of Style. An af­ter­noon by the Gar­den.”

Col­lab­o­rat­ing with the jew­elry store was Otoi Mer­cado, an all too fa­mil­iar fig­ure in the Davao fash­ion de­sign scene, but re­tired from it. For this event, he lifted the de­sign pen­cil once more to come up with a col­lec­tion. Ex­e­cut­ing his de­signs was Ate­lier 115, a pre­ferred stop for women who ad­mires con­tem­po­rary cou­ture.

De­signer and op­er­a­tions man­ager Emil Sitjar looked to trend­set­ters Au­drey Hep­burn and El­iz­a­beth Tay­lor as the in­spi­ra­tion, say­ing, “This col­lec­tion re­fo­cuses from the jew­ellery to the clients’ orig­i­nal­ity and per­sonal aes­thet­ics. The women who fol­low their own unique sense of style, who dic­tate style rather than style dic­tat­ing them.”

The col­lec­tion en­joys a play of col­ors and cuts of var­i­ous gem­stones. Topazes, Tan­zan­ites, Spinels, Di­a­monds, Ru­bies, Pearls to name a few, were de­signed to stand out in­di­vid­u­ally or com­bined to cre­ate a strik­ingly unique work of wear­able art.

Im­pres­sive was the Art Deco move­ment-in­spired col­lec­tion. It pre­sented spe­cially-cut Onyxs, and Opals, Ru­bies and Tsa­vorites as the gem­stones.

“By far this is the most im­por­tant col­lec­tion of the Emilia Sitjar Jew­ellery. It in­vokes not only the clas­sic style of jew­ellery as art that proudly up­holds Filipino de­sign sense and crafts­man­ship, but by mak­ing women as the fore­front of our sin­pira­tion,” said Emil.

The col­lec­tion can be viewed at the Emilia Sitjar Jew­ellery store at the sec­ond level of Abreeza Mall.
