Arabian Gulf Super Cup Trophy
In 2018, ROYAL INSIGNIA designed and crafted this bespoke trophy for the champions of the Arabian Gulf Super Cup. Drawing from the rich culture and heritage of the Emirates, the trophy's modern sillhouette was accented by traditional elements unqiue to the UAE. The lattice structure extending from the base of the trophy was an allusion to the palm tree, a symbolic plant integral to UAE’s historical identity.
Silver Model of the Sultan Oman Saiffudin Mosque
Crafted out of sterling silver, this model of Brunei's Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque is decorated with gold gilded qubbas. A minature replica of a 16th cenutry mahliga (ceremonial boat) rests in front of the model. The silver building is mounted on a high gloss black lacquered base. The model was commissioned by the Prime Minister's Office of Brunei as a diplomatic gift.
The highlight of this diplomatic gift is a gold gilded coin centred on the plateau. Finely engraved on the coin is a realisitc portrait of both rulers mid hand-shake, flanked by the state flag. A gold arch towers over the coin surmounted by an ornate enamelled crown. The base of the plateau is further decorated with an embossed spray of intertwining flowers, each flower a symbol for the respective rulers.
Designed and crafted for the elite members of a football club, this ring is set with 148 blue sapphires to represent the 148 goals the team has scored over the season. The team's tiger mascot sits over the bed of blue sapphires and is set with a shower of white diamonds. The ring shank is decorated with the hexagon-pentagon pattern found on a football.
To capture a slice of time in metal is to immortalise that moment. Crafted out of brass and coated in 24 karat yellow and white gold, these framed pieces of gold art serve as statement pieces for any space.
