Armanis are renowned for their high quality jewellery.
However, it was not always this way.
For centuries, it has been the traditional fashion of the rich and famous to wear a jewellery set from the Emirates, including a diamond belt with a pearl earring, a chandelier, a golden tiara and an emerald ring.
The Armania Exchange Belt was designed to take the place of these traditional and expensive pieces of jewellery and offer an affordable alternative for those who can’t afford to own a diamond necklace or earring.
The UAE government had previously announced that the UAE would be the first country to launch an exchange belt, but the official launch of the belt in December 2017 did not go as planned.
Instead, a second round of talks took place, where the UAE and Arman had the option of adding a second belt and the final agreement was agreed on in August.
The official launch on August 23, 2018 has been met with much criticism from some quarters and even some members of the UAE government, with some arguing that the country has not achieved its goal of becoming a high-quality market for Armanias.
The Dubai-based designer and entrepreneur Haji Mohammad Al Seddiqi was among the many who criticised the decision, arguing that Armana, the UAE’s second largest luxury brand, was not prepared to offer a high quality product.
The Belt, a collaboration between the Dubai-listed Al Manar Group and the UAE-based Almani, is a fully functional necklace made of gold plated metal with a golden earring and a diamond chain with a crystal earring at the end.
The belt is available in various sizes and can be purchased online or in the Emirates.
The gold plating is also reflective and the earring is gold plastered to the inside of the ear.
“They [Armani] did not give us a clear plan, and they have not come up with any alternative for us, we have to wait for the announcement of the second belt,” said Seddiwi, adding that it would take more time for the belt to be launched and offered in shops.
“I have waited for it, but I have been impatient,” he said.
“There is a lot of demand in the country, but we are waiting for the official announcement of a second Armanian exchange belt.”‘
