RAPAPORT... The International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) awarded Dubai-based Dhamani 1969 the "Best Gold Viva Award" for its classic store design. Dhamani's store façade is marble and bronze and the interior incorporated custom polished surfaces and signature lighting treatments.

Amit Dhamani, the managing director of Dhamani, said,  "Dhamani is a shining gem among the jewelry elite; it is a modern interpretation of the traditional art salons, conveying a sense of intimacy and serving as a branded, signature backdrop for viewing the art on display. To accentuate the timelessness of Dhamani's artistry and reinforce the feeling of handcrafted luxury, only the most exquisite materials, sourced from around the world were chosen -- Italian marble, golden silk-covered walls, rose gold trim and hand-rubbed bronze finishes. The design celebrates each of Dhamani's handcrafted, one-of-a-kind masterpieces and distinct-cut gemstones as works of art."
David Macadam, the CEO of The Middle East Council of Shopping Centres (MECSC), said, "Having played a small role earlier in the retail industry with Dhamani eight years ago, it is extremely gratifying to see the brand 'Dhamani 1969' rise from modest beginnings to sit comfortably in the arena of such wonderful jewelry legends as Cartier and Graff. Amit Dhamani and his family must surely be proud of this wonderful global award provided by the ICSC at the Viva Awards for the Best of the Best retailers."

MECSC is the regional trade body that represents the shopping center industry in the Middle East and North Africa. ICSC also honored the Dhamani 1969 project at an awards dinner during their 2014 RECon Middle East & North Africa conference.
