Notturno captures the beauty of summer nights

June 17, 2009 - United Arab Emirates

Damas, the world renowned jeweller, presents Italian brand Utopia’s bewitching Notturno collection, inspired by the musical composition of the same name paying tribute to a lyrical night of romance. It expresses itself in a blend of white gold, South Sea pearls, Tahitian pearls and diamonds, to offer an enchanting pentagram of two varieties of long necklaces, a scarf necklace, chandelier earrings and rings.

“Utopia is a brand that celebrates the beauty of the South Sea pearl in hand-made jewels designed and inspired by the timeless charm of these living gems. Its concept is hand-made pieces with select certified pearls, diamonds and natural stones. Part of its extravagant Baselworld 2008 launch, Notturno once again reiterates the design house's expertise and talent to simultaneously pay tribute to the beauty of the fabulous South Sea pearl and the woman who wears it,” said Tawhid Abdullah, Managing Director, Damas Jewellery.

Harmony defines Notturno, reminding one of the beauties of a clear full moon night with the stars, out in full and dazzling display. It translates this imagery through marvelous South Sea and Tahitian pearls which play moon and diamonds that play the role of stars. Its design element in this collection is a multi-tiered feature of tiny, white diamonds that coil themselves on either end of each South Sea or Tahitian pearl. Utopia then threads several of these striking designs with delicate links to form two varieties of long and glamorous necklaces guaranteed to put its wearer in the limelight, one featuring dazzling white South Sea pearls and the other eighteen, gradually shaded South Sea and Tahitian pearls.

In Notturno’s very interesting scarf necklace it presents a long and delicate white gold chain highlighted by tiny diamond motifs on its length that dangles a long double pendant featuring two pearls - one white peerless South Sea pearl and one dramatic black Tahitian pearl - both encrusted on one end by the collection’s design element, the multi-tiered diamond feature. This jewel’s casual charm makes it the perfect corporate adornment or even as a daytime accessory.

Notturno’s pair of chandelier earrings on the other hand is designed to sweep its wearer into the limelight! It is composed of a down turned tear-drop stud glittering with pave diamonds that ‘drops’ an extravagantly tiered white South Sea pearl. Beautiful and magnificent, it is the perfect jewel for the red carpet. Coiling a temptation of no less dimension, is Notturno’s ring which is designed to gradually wind itself around its wearer’s finger in a white gold ring with alternate sections of pave diamonds, that blossoms into one large, sumptuous South Sea pearl!
