Just as wedding traditions are laden with symbolic beauty, so Mouawad’s new masterpieces and high jewelry sets offer up a deeper meaning behind their shimmering reflections. The harmony of a wedded union is embodied brilliantly in each set of perfectly matching necklace, bracelet, earrings, and ring. Classic motifs of flowers, petals, hearts, and teardrops are united in designs that range from delicate simplicity to magnificent grandeur, giving every bride the luxury of choosing the perfect complement to her beauty.
In addition to its jewelry and timepiece design and production, Mouawad also manufactures rough diamonds as a Diamond Trading Company (DTC) Sightholder, which grants it a direct and unique access to conflict-free rough diamonds and gemstones, sourced and purchased in countries that are full participants in the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme.
Diamonds and gemology have always been a passion for the Mouawads, and besides being renowned for fine jewelry and timepieces, the Mouawad family has acquired over the years some of the largest and rarest diamonds in the world, and many of these historic gems carry Mouawad as part of their designated name. The family’s ongoing support of the global industry through research and education led to third-generation Robert Mouawad receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Gemological Institute of America and having the GIA campus named in his honor.
