Fine jewelry brand Marli New York is all set to open its flagship store in Riyadh, at the Kingdom Center in March 2022. Marli has long been known for being a brand that offers jewelry with a deeply magnetic aesthetic appealing to the modern woman, and customers can expect to see the New York brand’s architectural and contemporary pieces at the store, particularly its signature Cleo and vibrant Jazz collections created for the Marli woman who always makes an entrance. To mark the launch of the store, Vogue Arabia enlisted Saudi makeup artist and blogger Yara Al-Namlah to spotlight some of its key pieces.
A new addition to the Cleo by Marli collection is called ‘Rev’, derived from the word ‘reve’ meaning ‘dream’ in French. Embodying the visionary appeal of New York, the designs heavily mine inspiration from the city, with pieces mirroring its architecture. The collection aims to give rise to emotion with its craftsmanship and use of materials like lustrous gold, polished diamonds, and a variety of stones such as black onyx, red and pink coral, and green agate. “For me, the Cleo Rev is a radiant collection that perfectly represents the spirit of Marli, and what we stand for. To ensure every woman has something to wear that helps express her beauty and individuality,” says Maral Artinian, founder and creative director of Marli.
Similarly, the Jazz collection embodies the spirit of the Marli woman—someone who basks in the golden hours and has a strong sense of self. The collection is arresting in its use of colors and its playful combinations give it an enduring impact. A multitude of stones features within the collection, from pink opals to amethysts which can be paired colors such as the white and yellow gold set with diamonds and several other earrings, rings, and bracelets.
