House of Garrard and Villa Aurum offer dazzling experience for lovers of luxury
Garrard, the longest serving jewellery house in the world, and Villa Aurum, one of Dubai’s most exclusive private homes located at Palm Jumeirah, have teamed up to offer connoisseurs of distinction a one-of-a-kind experience. The London-based jeweller is showcasing its newest designs, the Wings Embrace collection, alongside a selection of unique creations, exclusively in the stunningly beautiful Villa Aurum from November 14 to 22. As well as viewing the collection, visitors are welcome to enjoy a full tour of the villa.
Garrard has had the honour of working closely with the British royal family since its first commission in 1735. Appointed Crown Jeweller by Queen Victoria in 1843, the House has since served every subsequent British monarch, creating iconic jewels, such as the Duchess of Cambridge’s sapphire and white diamond cluster engagement ring and renowned royal tiaras. Fresh interpretations of these historic commissions weave throughout the designs today, blending modernity with classic craftsmanship to produce beautiful creations exuding effortless glamour.
The newest designs, Wings Embrace, balance iconic silhouettes with the most delicate shades of gemstone. Inspired by the iridescent colours cast as light passes through diamonds, pink and yellow sapphires and aquamarine catch the eye within the openwork of angel wings, representing peace, purity and protection. Calibré 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, adding grace to the angel wing’s symbolism, while balancing the design’s bold silhouette.
Also on display will be some of Garrard’s most exceptional high jewellery creations. From the rare and highly coveted gemstones in the Jewelled Vault, to suites such as the White Rose, the unique designs embody contemporary sophistication whilst being imbued with historical symbolism from Garrard’s regal legacy.
Villa Aurum is part of a collection of five breath-taking landmark villas located on the tip of Frond M on Dubai’s iconic Palm Jumeirah. The final unit in the M.State collection, it is currently for sale at AED 130 Million. The architectural three-storey wonder, set on more than 1,300 square meters of land, boasts a vast home cinema and spectacular panoramic views. Its wealth of amenities include a gym, spa, private white sandy beach and lush landscaped gardens. The six bedroom house was designed with light and space in mind.
A framed sculptural tree sits at the heart of the courtyard within a reflection pond that provides a rippling effect that fills the inside space. Four bedrooms, each with their own balcony, are on the first floor. The second floor comprises the master suite with a separate office, spa and personal sun terrace. A light-filled guest room can be found on the ground floor. Shaded by canopies of natural timber rafters, all outdoor terraces are flooded with interesting linear shading, perfect for admiring the ever-changing light of the Arabian Gulf. The BBQ, with its free-standing chimney and a natural fire, allows guests to be entertained while taking in the bright lights of Dubai. Developer AA Real Estate Development and leading architects LW Design Group have jointly collaborated to make M.State a world-class property.
