Champagne and Sapphires as Tiesh launches festive collection
Sri Lanka’s reputed jewellers, Tiesh, recently unveiled an impressive array of trend setting designs from its brand new collection of sapphires for the forthcoming festive season, at an exclusive gala soirée at the Tiesh store in Colombo.
Gracing the champagne soirée was Miss Inter Continental Sri Lanka 2017 Natalee Fernando in her first official public appearance after winning the title. Tiesh created the crown for the winner and was also the Official Jewellery Partner of the Miss Continental Sri Lanka pageant.
Designed and created by the master craftsmen at Tiesh, the Rs. 1.2 million hand-crafted rose gold crown weighs 212 grams and is studded with blue topazes and white sapphires. It is indeed a work of art and one which truly befits a queen.
The multi-hued sapphires, ranging from the perennially favoured blues, sun-kissed yellows, the pretty pinks and more, are meticulously hand-crafted and artfully placed on precious metal, thus producing the most exquisitely designed selection of jewellery coveted by all who value the good things in life. Each precious stone and design embodies the credo of Tiesh which is authenticity, creativity, rarity and quality without compromise.
Speaking about the elaborate designs, Directors of Tiesh, Ayesh and Thiyasha De Fonseka remarked, “This is a collection of statement pieces which are perfect for cocktails or evening functions. Using a new range of cuts and styles in fashioning the gemstones we have gained ground in the ever-evolving fashion trends of Milan and Paris”.
“While the main focus in the collection is centered on the versatile sapphires, we also showcase other Sri Lankan gemstones, and the timeless value of diamonds which always lives up to its reputation as being a girl’s best friend. By setting these stones in precious metals of rose gold, white gold, yellow gold, and silver, we have further enhanced their original value many fold,” they added.
The Directors went on to say that Tiesh uses Sri Lankan gemstones as much as possible “since we have such a vast range of beautiful, naturally-coloured and textured gemstones we can boast of. The collection comprises beautiful necklaces, earrings, pendants and rings, with a focus on the larger pieces designed primarily for events and cocktails”.
Indulging its valued customers, the newly-refurbished Tiesh showroom now has a new internal fleet of stairs which connects the expansive upper and lower levels in a seamless experience. This further enhances the ambiance of the showroom as customers can now leisurely luxuriate in the surroundings created especially for them by Tiesh, as they experience the story behind the sparkle.
Tiesh exudes an aura of elegance intermingled with class on par with internationally acclaimed jewellery stores featuring ultra-modern state-of-the-art interior designs. On display are beautifully crafted items valued for their unique craftsmanship and attention to detail. The reasonably priced products often feature one-of-a-kind gemstones.
Tiesh offers more than its contemporary styles in jewellery, as it is also the preferred choice for tourists who visit the two branches in Kandy and Colombo to obtain a holistic knowledge about every aspect of being a jeweller. They are given a hands-on experience at the showrooms which house a gemological museum, a testing laboratory, an auditorium, a jewellery workshop and a replica of a gem mine which is the piece-de-resistance for both local and foreign clients.
