From the first day they met, Dubai-based fashion and beauty content creator Maram Zbaeda and renowned Lebanese businessman Chris Maalouf were inseparable. Now, four and a half years later, and after three postponed weddings due to the global pandemic, the happy couple tied the knot in a ceremony in March that saw Maram wearing the legendary Mouawad Dragon yellow and diamond suite to complement her designer dress.
Maram’s choice of the stunning Dragon Suite by Mouawad brought an extraordinary brilliance to the couple’s wedding day. The suite features five brilliant fancy vivid and deep yellow diamonds taking center stage among a scintillating backdrop of hundreds of brilliant white diamonds. The pinnacle of these exceptional gems lies at the heart of the Dragon necklace, an extraordinary polished 54.21 carat round brilliant cut, fancy vivid yellow, known as the Mouawad Dragon and revered as the largest diamond of its type graded to date by the Gemological Institute of America.
Although plans for a larger wedding celebration are on hold until the world returns to greater normality, the couple’s decision to formalize their union and to do so in unique style allowed them to celebrate all the positive emotions of love.
“2020 was a tough year during which many things changed around the world, and it allowed everyone to appreciate the most important things in life, such as family and loved ones,” said Maalouf and Zbaeda. “Many couples, like us, had to delay their wedding plans and cancel ceremonies. But we believe that hope prevails and love always wins, which is why we decided that a wedding isn’t just about having a party, but it is about starting our life together as a married couple. We hope to encourage other people to do the same.”
Mouawad Co-Guardian Mr. Pascal Mouawad said, “Sincere congratulations to Maram and Chris, whose wedding message of hope and love is inspiring. For the occasion, a masterpiece of Mouawad jewelry beautifully complemented the unique personality of the bride while radiating with an extraordinary brilliance that evokes purely positive emotions.”
