The best jewellery finds in Dubai you need to know about

As you prepare for the ultimate shopping experience at the Dubai Shopping Festival 2017, don’t forget to checkout their jewels. Dubai is home to some of the biggest local and international jewellery designers. We present you with our curated list of all Dubai-based stores that have made an incredible mark on our radar – now it’s time to make one on yours.

Why: Not so much a concept store as a gallery showcasing wearable art, The cARTel is amongst some of the hippest art galleries in Dubai’s industrial Al Quoz district. Peter Richweisz and May Barber’s finely-curated showroom assembles a broad spectrum of avant-garde designers. The items are presented against a backdrop of fashion-themed art exhibitions and installations.

In keeping with its wearable art concept, their jewellery is predictably esoteric. Slovenian jewellery label OlgafacesRok is inspired by contemporary art, sculpture, painting, and nature. Designs are made using the latest 3D printing technology with metal detailing. The Danish brand Sloan Sable universe is androgynous and contrasts minimalist style with an edgy look. Fun brands include Idonthaveasister’s glass rings and bracelets (handmade in a Murano workshop using 13th century glassblowing techniques) and Vibe Harsloef’s minimalist two-fingered rings with semi-precious stones.
