Fabric-style creates special bond with its wearer

Apr '08
The global jewellery market is witnessing an explosion of new ideas in gold jewellery design judging by the latest offerings of the region's gold markets.

One of the notable designs slowly making their way into the mainstream is 'fabric-style' gold jewellery – a breakthrough in artistry and craftsmanship that redefine the overall concept of adornment itself.

'Fabric-style gold jewellery' – so called for having acquired the unique qualities of a luxurious fabric -- challenges traditional notions one has of the precious metal.

By marrying traditional methods and modern technologies, goldsmiths have created a highly versatile material that gives way to delicate, lightweight and graceful pieces which would have been inconceivable only a few years back. The result is gold jewellery that is dramatic, sensual and highly expressive.

The versatility of this type of gold jewellery is a major advantage for the contemporary lifestyle. Its fine finish and soft texture allows the wearer to achieve different looks with a single piece.

Necklaces, bracelets, earrings and accessories in fabric-style exude movement and fluidity not seen in traditional gold creations, thus creating a special relationship with their wearer.

Lama Al Saheb, PR Manager of World Gold Council explains: “Fabric-style jewellery opens up endless possibilities for the use of gold in adornment.

Here is a clear demonstration of the versatility of gold which through the hands of expert craftsmen has led us to a new paradigm in design.
