Paspaley welcomes Australia's richest sporting trophy
Sep '08
Paspaley, the pearling pioneer and renowned jewellery house, joined the VRC Melbourne Cup Business Network in welcoming the arrival of Australia's richest sporting trophy - the Emirates Melbourne Cup.

Paspaley jewels added glitter to the exclusive dinner at the Godolphin Ballroom of Emirates Tower Hotel where business leaders, tourism operators and racing enthusiasts cheered the arrival of delegates from the Victoria Racing Club, considered Australia's premier racing club, and its world famous 18-carat gold Emirates Melbourne Cup trophy.

His Excellency Jeremy Bruer, Australian Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates graced the occasion. Also present were Australian jockey Simon Marshall and Wendy Green, the owner of the 1999 Melbourne Cup winner, Rogan Josh.

Held previously in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo, New York, Los Angeles, Manchester, London, Dublin and New Zealand, the Melbourne Cup Business Network event promotes bilateral trade, tourism and fashion links between Australian and Dubai businesses around the positive and dynamic atmosphere of the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

Paspaley, an Australian export success story, presented its signature pearl jewels to an appreciative audience. Elegant models wearing stunning sets highlighted by the finest South Sea pearls from Australia paraded and mingled with guests. To cap the evening, a fabulous Paspaley pendant necklace worth over AED 10,000 was given away in a special raffle.

Pegah Goldooz, General Manager of Paspaley in the UAE, remarked: “Paspaley has always strived to promote understanding between Australia and countries where the brand is present. We are proud to be associated with Australia's much-awaited sporting event and thrilled by the arrival in Dubai of the coveted Emirates Melbourne Cup Trophy.

As Dubai holds status as a world centre of racing, the event gains special importance as a platform for mutual cooperation. And as the world's pearling pioneer, Paspaley is happy to contribute to efforts in this direction.”

The Emirates Melbourne Cup, considered the main event of the Melbourne Cup Carnival, is the richest race in the world and attracts a worldwide television audience of more than 700 million people in 120 countries and territories.

The Melbourne Cup Business Network is a free membership programme launching an exciting era in corporate network and leveraging off Australia's most prestigious and social event – The Melbourne Cup Carnival.

Paspaley is the world's leading producer of cultured South Sea pearls. Founded by Nicholas Paspaley, Sr. over 70 years ago, the pearling pioneer creates some of the most memorable jewellery collections that combine South Sea pearls with diamonds and other precious stones.

Discover Paspaley's pearl jewels on display at exclusive boutiques in Saks Fifth Avenue, Burjuman Centre, Atlantis, Mall of Emirates and Abu Dhabi Mall.
