The designs were inspired by the first trip Leong made to South Africa in 2009. “The wild landscapes and larger than life animals are forever imprinted in my mind,” she says. For her Walk for Giants capsule collection, she aimed to infuse a bit of whimsy into her modern and elegant designs, thus was born her hand-carved, giraffe-inspired motif. “These giants move with such grace and dignity, and that’s how I want the wearers of my pieces to feel,” she explains.
The Sahara poison ring, in brushed 18k gold, has a unique design with a clasp opening and contains a ‘hidden’ rough emerald.
