During Jewellery Arabia Bahrain I had an opportunity to create jewellery looks from hundreds of stunning jewels on display in Azza Showroom: the top showroom for fine and contemporary jewellery designers in the Middle East led and curated by Azza Al-Hujairi.

Azza herself is not only the showroom founder, but also a talented jewellery designer, who presented a new collection during Jewellery Arabia exhibition in Bahrain. Azza Fine Jewellery new collection is minimalist in style and is all about layering. This trend is currently en vogue and complements both elegant everyday wear and stunning evening looks. Of course, I took my chance to create the perfect look with her elegant jewels before they were to find their beautiful owners among visitors of the biggest jewellery event in the Middle East.

As you might know, my love for Brazilian fashion designers is insatiable. Matching skirt and top by Adriana Degreas were absolutely perfect for our delicious lunch at my favourite space in town, La Fontaine Centre for Contemporary Art & Spa, just before heading to the opening of Jewellery Arabia Bahrain.

I styled my look with three elegant gold chokers embellished with diamonds and emeralds from Azza Fine Jewellery latest collection. Their minimalist design creates the perfect delicate layered necklace on my neck, which otherwise would have looked overdone with chokers of larger size.

Hoops have suddenly stormed the jewellery scene once again. I personally enjoy wearing large statement earrings, but these dainty pear-cut aquamarine hoop earrings instantly stole my heart: they are just so fun to play with! Jewellery styling tip of the look: think outside the box and decorate hoops with your favourite flowers for a day just like I did.

The sunglasses are essential finishing touch to any outfit in the land of 25°C the whole year round! I like to think that these gold-plated sunglasses by Elie Saab were inspired by the shape of pearl, one of my favourite gemstones in the world. How appropriate for Bahrain, the country with deep-rooted heritage of natural pearls jewellery craftsmanship!
