Peter Meeus, CEO of International Diamond Laboratories, commented on the growing consumer interest in diamond certification.

“Today it is not uncommon for customers to ask for a certificate when they buy diamond or diamond jewellery, there is an increased awareness of the benefits of certification. In the current economic situation, people are more conscious of what they are paying for and a certificate assures them of the value of their diamond,” said Peter Meeus.

Commenting on the new collection, Laila Suhail said:”The jewellery sector in Dubai has always been supportive of Dubai Shopping Festival and initiatives like the solitaire collection give more options to shoppers. The fact that they come with an International Diamond Laboratories certificate is an added bonus and speaks for quality products that Dubai is so famous for. “

The Dhamani Solitaires are available in different cuts including rounds, pears, marquise, princess and hearts as well as in various sizes ranging from 0.30 carats to 10 carats. The collection provides greater choice of engagement rings built to customer preferences.

Amit Dhamani, CEO and Managing Director of Dhamani, added: “Solitaire is the ultimate expression of individuality; it embodies the uniqueness of the woman who wears it and that of the stone itself. We decided to introduce a collection of individual solitaires to give customers the unique opportunity to design their own jewellery.

“As the diamonds come with a certificate from the International Diamond Laboratories, customers can also specify the carat and clarity they require when they select the colour and cut of the diamond. We also have a designer in-house who can help customers to create unique designs of their choice.”
