The selection of precious jewels and exclusive timepieces is one of the most expansive we have ever displayed in our boutiques at Portomaso, Pjazza Tigne and Valletta. 2014 showcases broad collections as well as the imagination and astonishing ability of the master craftsmen behind some of the world’s most luxurious brands.
FINE JEWELLERY – The key looks in the jewellery design for 2014 rely on the fancy coloured stones. Deceptively complicated settings are used to create maximum luminosity and every imaginable shade makes an appearance from violet, pink and black. Classic white diamonds remain a perennial favourite in ever more flamboyant creations from the haute joaillerie houses.
Inspired by the natural world, there are flowers, feathers and butterflies picked out in all manner of precious stones by Jewellery houses such as Chaumet and Damiani. The gold jewellery collections are legendary this year’s pieces are a striking fusion of craftsmanship and design. Watch out for Jewellery houses like Al Coro, Anna Maria Camilli and Fope, each brings a special signature to Diamonds International.
EXCLUSIVE WATCHES – In the world of business style, the new mantra has become smarten up and sober up. Men’s styles has straightened out and sobered up and with this trend has come a much desired return to classic design. In 2014, size still matters, but big is no longer beautiful – even chronos and perpetual calendars have slimmed right down. Watches have the 1930’s and 1940’s styles with traditional looking colours and finishes. Some watches that could have been worn by our grand-fathers have taken the world of haute horlogerie by storm.
This year’s sport watches know no limits and their goal is to give the man who pushes himself to the utmost limit the most reliable watch that can be built today. Engineers have taken the ruggedness and ergonomics to the strongbox of time to a whole new level. A watch fit for an expedition for all times even the toughest brands such as Audemars Piguet, IWC and Omega.
