Press release:
Givori, the luxury accessorizor specializing in mobile art, has launched the premier model within its new Fine Jewellery collection, Calypso, designed to showcase the classic elegance and intrigue evoked by the Greek nymph of the sea.

The Calypso collection, which is available on 18 karat gold-plated Nokia 8800 handsets, is hand crafted in England, and features natural mother of pearl intricately cut, shaped, and arranged in a stunning fish-scale design fastened with gold pin embellishments – a true celebration of the sea’s most delicate natural commodities.

“For the new Givori Fine Jewellery line, we drew inspiration from Greek mythology to produce a range that reflects timeless glamour, exquisite natural materials, and the romance of folklore,” said Nader Mikhail, Givori Brand Manager.

“Through our unique collaboration with leading craftsmen in England, each mother of pearl element is individually hand fitted and delicately grouped together to form one seamless surface reflecting heavenly hues. The end product is a true piece of jewellery and the ultimate fashion accessory,” continued Mikhail.

The mystical sea-nymph Calypso has been immortalized in Greek mythology as the protector of ancient Athens and is synonymous with boundless beauty. The fashionable interpretation of Calypso’s splendor is sure to appeal to Givori’s stylish clientele who crave exquisite design coupled with the functionality of popular mobile devices.

The Givori Calypso collection is available in a Classic edition retailing at AED 8,899, and an Exclusive edition retailing at AED 15,000. The exclusive edition features a round brilliant cut 0.22 carat diamond solitaire navigation key, a flawless baroque shape pearl pendant, and a personalized name engraving option on the handset.

The Calypso collection will be launched on 7 April at the Dubai Bride Show Exhibition 2010, and available exclusively at select Axiom Telecom outlets, and Harvey Nichols Dubai, Mall of the Emirates, UAE.
