To conclude our 4 part series on discovering luxurious treasures at the high-end jewelry exhibition in Abu Dhabi’s Emirates Palace hotel is the Lydia Courtielle collection.

Her work is in a class of its own – or rather in a “planet” of its own. With the Nine Planets Collection, you can escape into a blissful land of your own whenever you want to.

With her rare skill, Lydia Courteille has used precious stones dating back to the 16th century for Gothic creations in her Vintage Collection. She treats her creations as art even as her focus gravitates towards the flora and fauna of the forests.

We had a tough time deciding whether to shrink away in horror or gravitate to the chalk-white skull smiling cheekily at us through its sun shades and a rose clenched tightly in its mouth.  This unique Lydia Courteille Creation is made of white agate, diamonds, garnets, sapphires and gold.

All Lydia Courteille jewelry pieces are put together in such a way that you feel that if you touched it, you would be transported into a different dimension.

The Secret Garden Collection is flush with fuchsia flowers that are miniature sculptures in themselves. Can you imagine carrying a ‘secret garden’ on your finger – a convoy of  petals and delicate sounds of the studded beetle?

Take some time to  also consider  Rose Creations. The ring is in coral, gold and black diamonds and also pink sapphire. Quite a take! The big rose creation is in gold, morganite and pink sapphires

And here questions of type such if honestly strike me not much as I wrote everything higher. It is visible you simply you don’t want to read all this. As my parrot does.
