TRUE COLOURS

With its lat­est sap­phire­fo­cused jewellery col­lec­tion, Moussaieff has proven its un­par­al­leled ex­per­tise in rare and ex­quis­ite coloured gem­stones

Prestige (Singapore) - - SELECT -

MOUSSAIEFF OPENED ITS bou­tique in Lon­don in 1963 and own­ers Alisa and Shlomo Mous­saie have since built a pres­ti­gious in­ter­na­tional clien­tele and a world­wide rep­u­ta­tion for sump­tu­ously glam­orous jewels, cre­ated from the rarest, most coveted, and most beau­ti­ful of di­a­monds, pearls and coloured gems.

The fam­ily-owned jewellery brand has again demon­strated its prow­ess in ac­quir­ing ex­tra­or­di­nary gem­stones and pre­sent­ing them at their best, with its re­cently un­veiled col­lec­tion fea­tur­ing ex­cep­tional purple sap­phires and pink sap­phires. Aptly named Coloured Roses In Full Bloom, it is mes­meric in its joy­ous purple and pink colour pal­ette, the size and rar­ity of the gem­stones, and the bril­liantly cre­ative de­sign. The col­lec­tion was launched on the open­ing day of this year’s Mas­ter­piece Lon­don fair, to cel­e­brate the di­ver­sity of colour in sap­phires and the enor­mous de­sign po­ten­tial.

Com­pris­ing seven pieces, the jewellery merges avant-garde and light-hearted play­ful­ness. Among the items is a pair of white gold chan­de­lier ear­rings bear­ing 70ct of stun­ning no­heat nat­u­ral purple sap­phires, sus­pended in a feat of ex­pert crafts­man­ship on di­a­mond pavé arabesques so that they gen­tly move with the wearer’s gait, adding a dash of high glam­our to any en­sem­ble.

Ever sen­si­tive to the needs of mod­ern women, Alisa Mous­saie , the House’s cre­ative mas­ter­mind, has also de­signed a pair of match­ing state­ment ear­rings and an in­vis­i­bly set “car­pet” bracelet to be worn for evening glam­our. Both jewels boast a vivid range of ex­cep­tional pink, pur­plish pink and purple sap­phires. The flo­ral “daisy” mo­tif that runs through both jewels, com­posed of quin­tets of mar­quise-cut di­a­monds and sur­rounded by di­a­mond pavé, is a light-hearted, play­ful but deeply fem­i­nine sym­bol char­ac­ter­is­tic of Mrs Mous­saie ’s de­signs.

Never one to shy away from colour, and in­stead ea­ger to em­brace it for all its en­ergy, glam­our and charm, Mrs Mous­saie has ap­plied her artis­tic vi­sion to the sub­tle tones of pink and purple in these rare sap­phires, and set them against so­phis­ti­cated white di­a­monds for promi­nence. The over­all e ect is ut­terly spell­bind­ing and se­duc­tive. But her ex­per­tise doesn’t lie only with coloured gem­stones. When it comes to white di­a­monds, she ap­plies the same keen eye for qual­ity and style. Mous­saie un­veiled wed­ding jewellery parures in May, with so­ci­ety dar­ling Sa­man­tha Wi­jaya, a friend of the brand, as the face of its bridal cam­paign.

To truly un­der­stand Mrs Mous­saie ’s ex­pert eye is to take a trip to the brand’s new show­room in Hong Kong or its Lon­don New Bond Street flag­ship bou­tique. It takes a per­sonal visit to ad­mire such ex­quis­ite gem­stones in all their glory.
