The Young Qatari Designers (YQD) initiative returns to the Doha Jewellery & Watches Exhibition (DJWE) this year, which is being held under the patronage of HE the Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz al-Thani at Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre until February 29.
The initiative is aimed at supporting Qatari jewellery designers and promoting their work by enabling them to showcase their collections alongside famous luxury brands. Eighteen talented designers will join the 17th edition of DWJE, expanding the size and scope of the popular initiative. New participants include: H Jewelery, Kaltham’s Pavilion, Camelot Jewellery, Clair De Lune Jewellery, and Letters Passion Arts, while brands Trifoglio, Ghada Albuainain Jewellery, Nouf Jewellery, Ghand Jewellery, Leila Issam Fine Jewellery, Hairaat Fine Jewellery, Sarah’s & Co, AlGhala Jewellery, Hessa Jewels, Midad Jewelery, and Thameen Jewellery return for the fourth year.
“Supporting Qatar’s entrepreneurs and talents is one of the main goals of Qatar National Tourism Council (QNTC), and DJWE has historically been a fruitful platform for these young artists,” said Ahmed al-Obaidli, director of Exhibitions at QTNC, the organisers of the event. “We are pleased with the continuous growth of both the exhibition and the participation of our young Qatari designers.”
Newcomers Kaltham al-Majid, a descendant of the veteran Al-Majid family jewellers, joins the initiative this year with her brand Kaltham’s Pavilion. Her collection of rings, pendants, and bracelets include precious pieces titled Pink Obsession, Pearl Gardenia, Royal Arches and Qatar My Heart, and are crafted from sapphire, diamond and other precious gemstones set in 18-karat gold. Esma al-Saadi established her brand, Clair De Lune, in 2017. At the show, she will present a collection of fine jewellery inspired by the beauty of nature and consisting mainly of rubies and diamonds. Hamad Almohammad established his brand H Jewellery in 2012, which is distinguished by pieces derived from Qatari culture and contemporary architecture, such as a collection inspired by buildings on the Doha Corniche.
The recently launched Camelot brand was founded by Ebtisam Almuslmani. A lover of precious stones, Ebtisam began making jewellery as a hobby and has turned it into a profession.
“A prestigious exhibition like DJWE provides a great opportunity for me to showcase my collections, which I started out of a personal passion when I designed my own jewellery in Istanbul,” she said.
DJWE is an ideal platform for luxury aficionados to learn about the latest releases and collections of famous brands from Qatar and the world, all under one roof. This year’s 17th edition is the largest ever, with 129 exhibitors from 14 countries displaying products by 500 local and international brands across ??33,000sq m of exhibition halls.
