|Mouawad Launches The New Hilal Collection
Mouawad, the luxury jewellery and watch maker, celebrates the upcoming holy month of Ramadan with the launch of the Hilal collection across all its Middle Eastern boutiques. The new collection comprises hand-crafted pendants in 18K white gold with precious gemstones that feature iconic Islamic amulets—the perfect accessory for those customers that wish to celebrate their faith with an extraordinary and contemporary signature design.
“The new Hilal collection has been designed and realized by Mouawad’s jewellery masters, taking inspiration from the culture and traditions of the Middle East, the region where the Mouawad family and the Mouawad brand have our roots”, commented Pascal Mouawad, fourth generation Co-Guardian of the family business.
Mouawad’s Hilal collection features popular symbols from the Islamic world - the Hamsa hand, the Allah script and the Evil Eye—all exquisitely detailed in 18K white gold, with black and white diamonds, rubies, blue sapphires, black onyx and mother-of-pearl. All Hilal pendants come with an 18K white gold chain and make the perfect Eid gift for loved ones.
The Hilal Hamsa pendant – also known as Fatima Hand - a palm-shaped amulet popular in the Middle East to ward off danger, comes in four different colour versions: black with unique black diamonds, white with sparkling white diamonds, blue with blue sapphires, and red with rubies, all set on 18K white gold.
Two different designs have been realized for the Allah script; one design features a pear shaped pendant with a black onyx or mother-of-pearl surface engraved with a diamond Allah script, and a second design featuring the Allah script with the crescent moon and star motif, available in white diamonds, blue sapphires or rubies.
The Hilal Evil Eye charm, common to many cultures and religions and used for thousands of years for protection against evil, is fashioned from diamonds with a blue sapphire iris.
