Mouawad Diamond House marks 125 years at Grand Hills Hotel Broumana, Lebanon
Beirut, September 27th: Grand Hills Hotel in Broumana, Lebanon was the stylish setting for a remarkable and glittering celebration held on September 26th. Lebanon’s A-list gathered for a memorable evening to celebrate the 125th anniversary of legendary diamond house, Mouawad, and to mark the reopening of the Grand Hills Collection Hotel and Spa under the Luxury Collection.
VIPs, top influencers, bloggers and media were present as Mouawad’s three co-guardians, the fourth generation brothers Fred, Alain and Pascal Mouawad recounted the brand’s distinguished history spanning over 125 years. They described its growth from the humble beginnings in 1890 until the present day, with the company now considered as one of the world’s most prominent diamond houses.
The evening began on a high note with “Mouawad Journey”, a themed 3D animation show that traced 125 years of Mouawad’s history. The exclusive event that followed was a sparkling celebration of style and elegance featuring a live performance by the Canadian singer Garou and a glittering line-up of models wearing some of Mouawad’s most exquisite jewellery. For this memorable event, a suitably majestic backdrop was provided by the Grand Hills, which houses a new Mouawad boutique.
As the co-guardians noted, the Mouawad family empire is built on a continuing commitment to quality and service, and on a passion and genuine understanding for gems and jewellery across four generations. The rich heritage of this family was greatly evident at this celebratory evening, where the special guests of honour were the co-guardians’ proud parents, Robert and Leila Mouawad. The three brothers and co-guardians Fred, Alain and Pascal Mouawad, released a joint statement that said: “As we look back on the history of Mouawad and celebrate its milestone achievement, no matter how global our brand, no matter the stature we have achieved as a company, there’s no place we’d rather be tonight than here, in Lebanon. It is the country of Mouawad’s origin, and we acknowledge with pride our cherished roots in the Middle East, and give thanks to our extended family, friends and patrons who have made all this possible.”
