Adorn - - PUBLISHER’S NOTE - Pub­lisher & Ed­i­tor Ma­neck Davar ma­neck@spen­ta­mul­ti­me­dia.com

Arare, pre­cious item be­comes all the more ap­peal­ing and valu­able as it ac­quires an­tiq­uity. This is­sue of ADORN fo­cuses on an en­deav­our that high­lights such ex­cep­tional, inim­itable ob­jets de vertu that will no doubt go on to be­come heir­looms. The on­go­ing ex­hi­bi­tion at the Nat­u­ral His­tory Mu­seum of Los An­ge­les County spot­lights 60 nat­u­ral fancy green di­a­monds of var­i­ous sizes and in­ten­si­ties from vivid-green and red to yel­low-green and deep grey vi­o­let. Leaf through the Mu­seum Tour sec­tion to learn more about these mag­nif­i­cent rar­i­ties. Con­tem­po­rary for­mats are re­cur­rent themes that are in­creas­ingly at­tract­ing the young and old alike. Ear­lier in Novem­ber, the At­lanta Con­tem­po­rary Jew­elry Show ex­hib­ited around 5,000 avant-garde jew­ellery pieces by world-class con­tem­po­rary artists that piqued the in­ter­est of con­nois­seurs. Some of these out-of-the-box cre­ations are pre­sented in this is­sue. Beirut-based Ralph Masri, 28, an award-win­ning de­signer who honed his skills at Cen­tral Saint Martins, Lon­don, bal­ances the act of pro­duc­ing fine qual­ity jew­ellery im­bued with a high fash­ion el­e­ment. Read more about his in­spi­ra­tion and de­sign phi­los­o­phy in Cre­ative Charisma. Back on home turf, Pallavi Fo­ley from Ben­galuru, a fu­tur­ist jew­ellery de­signer who breaks ev­ery con­ven­tion, fore­casts the trends for 2018. This su­per-suc­cess­ful de­signer with a large clien­tele un­der­stands the likes and dis­likes of to­day’s gen­er­a­tion. She be­lieves that mil­len­ni­als are drawn to pieces that con­vey a per­sonal mes­sage, and are also open to ex­per­i­ment­ing with newer for­mats of adorn­ment such as body or­na­ments. Read more about her views in Style Ex­pert.
