eloquent, Fior Drissage - an exquisite shop located in Melbourne’s
inner suburb of Armadale, is not just another jewellery shop! They
use the latest, space age technology to attach diamonds to precious
metal, and the finished products look stunningly beautiful. Diamonds
and girls have never been this close! Congratulations to the owners
Lady Mrs Sicille Kothalwala one of the most prominent businesswomen
in Sri Lanka, and Mr Alston Koch, pop guru music extraordinaire.
For the opening of this unique venture, they invited the man with
the golden hand, most precious diamond in Sri Lanka Cricket, Murali.
Just to fit in to the occasion there was a cricket ball made out
of Diamonds and Gold! Quite fittingly Murali’s hands were
the first human hands to touch this prices less ball, which contains
2704 diamonds with an 18 karat gold seam!!!
For the people who hail from the island they once called “the
pearl of the Indian Ocean”, this is a special place too, all
the jewellery is made in Sri Lanka using sophisticated European
designs and finest diamonds cut to perfection by ‘Blue Diamonds’.
