dinh van launches Seventies Collection

Luxury contemporary French jewelry house dinh van, part of the fashion arm of Mark PJSC, continues to dazzle audiences with its Seventies collection which sees the French jewelry house return to the very essence of it creations.

With unique and sleek lines and curves, characteristic of the seventies, this collection pays homage to the boldness, freedom and creativity of the decade. In a fresh take on an everyday object, dinh van has used a key ring’s spring clip to create a new line of jewelry that is both simple and complete.

An object of inspiration, the key ring was reworked until nothing was left to chance, producing an overall unique, modern motif featuring in bracelets, rings, necklaces-penants and earrings available in yellow, white and pink gold, set with diamonds.

The pieces of this timeless and emblematic collection can be either worn on their own or in accumulation with others.


Following on the success of dinh van’s mono-store in Dubai, Marka plans to continue the contemporary jewelry house’s expansion in the Middle East with five more bespoke boutiques in the pipeline for the UAE and Qatar, providing exciting and second-to-none experiences for its fashion-savvy customers.

Resting time: Overnight

• 4 small red beets, roasted or boiled
• 200g Goats cheese, softened
• 2 tablespoons honey
• 3-4 tablespoons Greek yogurt
• 2 tablespoons balsamic reduction
• 2 tablespoons groundnut oil
• 50g chopped and roasted hazelnuts
• Mixed leaves to finish


1. Using a mandolin slice the beets very thinly and using a 2 inch diameter cutter, cut into circles. Place on a tray generously lined with paper towel and rest in the fridge overnight.
2. Mix the softened goats cheese with the honey and add the greek yogurt one tablespoon at a time, mixing until slightly softened but still holding its weight. Put in a piping bag.
3. Mix the balsamic and groundnut oil well, and dress the mixed leaves and hazelnuts together.
4. Start to build the Napoleon: starting with 1 beet slice, pipe a bit of goats cheese mixture in a swirling motion, top with another beet slice and press down slightly if the cheese mixture has not made it to the edge. Repeat to create a stack of 6 layers of beet and 5 layers of goat’s cheese.
