Leading Lebanese Jewellery house Aziz & Walid Mouzannar teamed up with world renowned designer Zaha Hadid to create exclusive one-off jewelry piece. This handcrafted cuff bracelet, simply named The Petal Cuff, is made of 18-karat white gold and set with 1,048 white diamonds. It has an organic shape and design that echoes the look of tree roots. There is also a black-gold version. Speaking about the partnership, Hadid said: “Our collaboration with the House of Aziz & Walid Mouzannar takes full advantage of Alia’s expertise and Dori’s knowledge to explore the beauty of natural forms and the unique properties of its materials.
“Alia’s work celebrates materiality and composition in the rich history and traditions of Lebanon’s jewellers. Each immaculately detailed piece conveys formal complexity and precision with the highest standards of craftsmanship.”
The first cuff will be unveiled at Hadid’s ZHD Gallery in Clerkenwell, London, in a pop-up exhibition of Alia and Dori’s own collections from November 13 to 15. The cuff will also be available from the Aziz & Walid Mouzannar jewellery boutique in Beirut, retailing for £55,000 ($87,000).
