In a visual triolet that rings with Abu Dhabi and Roman rhymes, and in loving memory of Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Bvlgari’s Jannah High Jewellery collection returned with a second sonnet this year. Translating to ‘paradise’ in Arabic, the collection was released in its second chapter in no ordinary hap. Instead, it redefined the line’s legacy with a movie that narrates the journey between its two founding mothers: Her Highness, Sheikha Fatima bint Hazza bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Sheikh Zayed Al Nahyan’s granddaughter, and Lucia Silvestri, Bvlgari’s Creative Director.
The movie takes viewers on an emotional journey with the history of Jannah’s founding, and blends narratives from the Italian and authentic Emirati cultures. Tapping into the creative void of those country’s architecture, landscape, and attitudes, Her Highness, Sheikha Fatima bint Hazza bin Zayed Al Nahyan leads the audience in a captivating chronicle of her heritage. Looking back at the collection’s first moments of launch, she shared: “The collection touched so many people – my family; my country. I wanted to share my grandfather’s message of love and peace.”
Echoing the floral motifs that reside in the interiors and ceilings of The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, the collection boasts recurring five-petal flowers in a circular golden frames with inserts like mother of pearl, a feminine stone of traditional significance in Emirati culture, and diamond pavé. The collection combines luxury, glamour, and convenience in six different everyday sets, ranging from a pendant necklace with matching earrings and a gold and diamond tassel to stud earrings, another pendant, and an elegant bracelet. “It is so light and beautiful, literally heaven. This is Sheikh Zayed’s message through a work of art.” Her Highness said. “The iconic Jannah flower is perfect for fine jewelry. It was something we loved at first sight; we loved the geometry. Italian and Arab culture meeting in a seamless creative balance,” Silvestri added.
Initially created in 2020, the Bvlgari Jannah High Jewelry collection highlights Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Hazza bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s message for peace and joy through her grandfather’s memory. The idea of the collection sparked when Silvestri and Her Highness met in The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, and welded their passion for life, family, and beauty in a visual collection. “Creating together – the energy and inspiration were wonderful,” revealed Silvestri.
