CANNES, France, May 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ —

Superstar Chinese actress chooses Mouawad diamond jewellery to step out in style at this year’s Cannes Film Festival

Hollywood glamour reigned supreme at the Cannes Film Festival this week as Superstar Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi stepped on to the red carpet at amFAR wearing a stunning Diamond set by Mouawad. This perfectly offset her recently unveiled pixie-cut hairdo. Zhang looked picture perfect at the star-studded amFAR charity benefit at Cannes with over 21 carats of diamonds worth a pretty sum of a 1 million US dollars.


Pascal Mouawad, Co-Guardian of the Mouawad brand, said: “At Mouawad we have more than 123 years of heritage and over that time, our jewellery has graced some of the world’s most beautiful and influential women. We’re proud to continue in that tradition this week at Cannes, with Zhang Ziyi choosing to be seen and to sparkle on the red carpet in some of our very finest diamonds; gems which have helped to make our family name synonymous with glamour, elegance and style over four generations.”

Ms Ziyi is just the latest in a list of international superstars who have chosen to wear Mouawad in recent months.

About Mouawad

MOUAWAD – Enchanting customers with magnificent jewels since 1890

Led by 4th generation Co-Guardians, Fred, Alain & Pascal Mouawad, and backed by more than a century of excellence in its field, Mouawad remains a family business built upon artistic excellence, superb craftsmanship, trust and relationships.

Diamond Manufacturing

In addition to its jewellery and timepiece design and production, Mouawad also manufactures rough diamonds as a Diamond Trading Company (DTC) Sightholder through its joint venture company, Premier Diamond Alliance.

Diamonds and gemmology have always been a passion for the Mouawads and besides being renowned for fine jewellery and timepieces, over the years the Mouawad family has acquired some of the largest and rarest diamonds in the world and many of these historic gems carry Mouawad as part of their designated name. The family’s on-going support of the global industry through research and education led to third generation, Robert Mouawad, receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and having the GIA campus named in his honour.

Guinness World Records

Mouawad has been honoured by the Guinness World Records four times with their most recent award for the MouawadL’Incomparable Diamond Necklace-the most valuable necklace in the world ($55M)-featuring the world’s largest internally flawless diamond, the Incomparable diamond (407.48 carats).

With brothers Fred Mouawad heading the diamond division, Alain, the watch division and Pascal, the retail division, each Co-Guardian brings his unique business acumen and creativity to the 123 year old brand with the mission of continuing the rich heritage of creating fine jewellery and timepiece collections-while widening distribution through contemporary and accessible price points in order to increase the reach of the brand internationally.
