Damas presents Junagadh collection
Jun '09
Damas the world renowned jeweller proposes a highly decorative and rich array of jewellery creations in the form of its well known Legacy collection combining 22kt gold with rose cut diamonds and coloured stones to offer necklaces, drop earrings and unique hair adornments.

Also called the Junagadh collection, Legacy is inspired by the traditional jewellery styles of the Junagadh province, located at the foot of the Girnar hills in the state of Gujarat, India, an erstwhile princely state with a vibrant and royal past. The Legacy collection's highpoint are its featured rose-cut diamonds which endow the jewels with an antique appeal that sets them apart as timeless treasures.

“Legacy jewels have a unique combination of the traditional with the feminine and its use of rose-cut diamonds and coloured stones makes it immediately recognizable. Though the collection has a rich feel, it also looks very light due to the incorporation of rose-cut diamonds and tiny floral motifs. As such its design aesthetic is sure to find appeal among women of all ages and cultures everywhere,” said Tawhid Abdullah, Managing Director, Damas Jewellery.

Rose cut diamonds are beautifully unique diamond cuts with a distinct vintage feel and an external appearance reminiscent of older, delicate diamond jewellery. Unlike other diamond cuts they are flat bottomed without the distinctive tapered body: instead, the crown of the gem is elevated in a facetted dome-shape where triangular facets mimic the progressive tighter spiral of a rose, capturing the beauty of the romantic bloom. As between three to 24 facets come together, they mirror the central focal point of a rose bud and offer a unique perspective of diamond beauty.

Legacy's necklaces are the very epitome of beauty and grace, and are the highpoint of the collection. One de-sign features several gradually graded rows of rose cut diamonds painstakingly arranged in decorative excess. While the innermost row has the smallest sized stones, the succeeding rows have gradually bigger sized rose cut diamonds. The piece is matched perfectly by a pair of drop earrings replicating its design. Another necklace is composed of several arches, each of them made up of tiny floral motifs, highlighted by tiny coloured stones such as tourmalines and pink stones. Each arch is in turn joined to its neighbouring arch while the final two arches feature delicate tassels that gently trickle down.

Yet another necklace is composed of a thick arch in weave pattern that is pegged by a highly ornate center-piece which is tasseled. The entire jewel is thereafter laced by delicate tear-drop shaped green and maroon coloured stones endowing it with a flame-like appearance.

The Legacy collection also offers several highly interesting, ethnic hair adornments native to the country of its origin India, but which will definitely appeal to the style quotient of any woman anywhere. These resemble long chandelier earrings that are to be worn in the centre parting of the hair. One end is to be hooked to the back of the head, after which, its decorative length is allowed to trail the entire central parting of the hair so that its other end, a gorgeous pendant finally blossoms at the very top of the wearer's forehead, to instantly add a be-witching radiance to its wearer's visage.
