Prouna is a luxury brand of Hankook Chinaware, which is a 60 year old South Korean family business that has made exquisite bona china for people like Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, and Royal Doulton for many years. In 2005, Prouna discovered a way to bond Swarovski crystals to china.
Now, due to the efforts of the Bahadorzadehs family,a family of Iranian commodities traders specializing in steel, the beautiful table settings of Prouna will now be available to the American customers as well. They came across the Prouna wares in 2008, and have been their distributers since then. Their showroom is currently in New York. But they will expand and have showrooms all over the country.
Highlighting the range is a five-piece place setting made out of amber and clear baguette called the Diana and Adonis patterns priced at $885 that spot cabochon crystals and 24-karat-gold rims. The most expensive of the lot is called as Princess, with a price tag of $995, a web pattern crafted in platinum and studded with crystals. Persia ($517) is a paisley pattern employing the same materials.
And the best part of the Prouna collection called as the Jewelry Collection is not just dishwasher safe, but comes with a lifetime replacement guarantee for the displaced crystals.
