Velaa Private Island Maldives launches bespoke jewellery collections
Velaa Private Island Maldives has launched its own bespoke jewellery collection, in partnership with Frédéric Béziat of Maison Atelier Loréedubois.
Béziat, who typically produces one-of-a-kind jewellery for private collectors including the Sultan of Oman, worked with owners of the resort, Radka and Jiri Smejc, to craft two fine jewellery collections inspired by the beauty of the island – High Jewellery Collection and Turtle Anniversary Collection.
The High Jewellery Collection features 10 limited-edition designs, including one-of-a-kind pieces. Highlights include the 18K white gold Ocean Lagoon Blue Ring with tanzanites and diamonds which is an absolute piece of artistry, as are the Parrot Earrings featuring pear-dropped diamonds, and a Tropical Garden Bracelet encrusted with emeralds and tsavorites.
The masterpiece of the High Jewellery Collection is the Sea Beauty Necklace, which is inspired by the trilogy of colours of the island, the underwater garden and the rhythm of the sea. Some of its most valued stones include round brilliant diamonds and hand-carved onyx.
The Turtle Anniversary Collection will live on the island and be available to guests visiting the ultra-luxury resort. Because turtles are such an important part of Velaa’s ethos, each piece is designed to resemble a turtle. The collection will be available only at Velaa Private Island Maldives.
Tucked away within the collection of islands that form the northern Noonu atoll, Velaa Private Island is elegantly positioned to overlook enchanting vistas of a cerulean ocean. Its name derived from generations of sea turtles that flock there to nest and hatch; it is comprised of 47 private villas, houses and exclusive residences. The resort also includes a Romantic Pool Residence which can only be reached by boat.
At Velaa Private Island, all details have been considered: each villa comes with a personal butler, all services offered can be tailored to personal specifications. Attention to detail everywhere is also impeccable: stone pavements from the desert in Jordan, Indonesian flowerpots, luxury wood panelling from Borneo, and glimmering Italian marble.
Velaa Private Island offers endless exclusive opportunities. These unique offerings include the Maldives’ first and only snow room, the largest and most extensive wine collection in the region, one of the few Maldivian resorts with a private submarine, an extraordinary kids’ club conceptualised as the world’s ideal kids’ club by the owner’s seven-year-old daughter, and the only resort in Asia with a My Blend by Clarins spa.
Personalising and tailoring the entirety of the island depending on specific requirements, there is no limit to ensure the ultimate experience. Guests can sit back in the knowledge that the island’s highly trained and dedicated butlers will cater to each and every whim. Whether it is watching a spectacular fireworks display within the Maldivian night sky, dancing into the early hours with an Al fresco live music event, stepping aboard the island’s private yacht for a glamorous sunset cruise or enjoying a private, open air cinema night, anything is possible. Other interactive activities perfect for private groups include gourmet cooking classes with one of the resort’s chefs or wine tasting within the Maldives’ largest wine cellar.
For those looking to get involved in some Indian Ocean adventure, Velaa’s high-tech water toys, including the hover board, jetpack and fly board serve as the definitive adrenaline rush. Whilst discovering the wonders beneath the island’s welcoming waters, guests can learn to dive or simply snorkel the coral rainbow.
