SAMA was created on the basis that no two women are alike and so the jewellery they wear should be as unique as they are. It offers discerning customers artfully crafted, exclusive, one-of-a-kind masterpieces that are so rare, there is only one piece of each in existence. A testament to Dubai’s passion for innovation and progressive culture, SAMA is the embodiment of the emirate’s impression on Damas.
The SAMA collection comprises of a fantastic array of evening sets perfectly handcrafted for the most special of occasions. The range also features a wide variety of exceptional rings garnering a center stone of minimum 10 Carats surrounded by various diamond cuts. SAMA also carries exquisite white diamond 4-piece bridal sets – necklace, earrings, bracelet and ring – designed to offer the bride an unmatched element of brilliance and beauty on her special day.
Commenting on the new brand, Anan Fakhreddin, CEO of Damas said: “SAMA comes as a natural evolution of the great vision we set forth three years ago. It presents not just a product-line but an entire experience and showcases what lies at the heart of the brand – what Dubai and the UAE has taught us. It is a premium and luxurious offering that will capture the essence of the brand globally.”
In speaking about the collaboration with Penélope Cruz, Anan continued, “we are thrilled to be working with Penélope, an ambassador whose values and characteristics perfectly fit the heart of the brand. She is one of many celebrities we’ve tied up with but this is, by far, our most glamorous campaign. With this launch, and the collaboration, we are truly moving from a famous jewellery retailer in Dubai to conceivers of a famous jewellery brand from Dubai.”
