Celebrated self-taught baker, Faaiza Omar, has partnered with Charles Craig to drop her very first jewellery collection. Charles Craig Jewellers have been in the industry for a very long time, making them the near-perfect brand to partner with in this regard.

“There was definitely a need for a standout local luxury collaboration. There hasn’t been one in South Africa for a while, and I saw a gap in the market for exclusive, standout pieces.

“After months of planning, we are ready to launch. Now is the perfect time as we head into the summer season under level 1, with social calendars filling up with events and special occasions,” says Omar.

Omar was inspired by Beechwood Gardens, which is one of the most popular spring destinations in Jozi and flowers are usually in full bloom during this time of the year.

“Inspired by Beechwood Gardens and the spring blossom, bumblebees, dragonflies and butterflies, typical of an October day, we have created a collection of jewellery of varying price points. The collection highlights our favourite gemstone and colour – emerald – enhanced by unusual fancy cut diamonds,” says jeweller Greig.

Omar preferred to work with rose gold and yellow gold as the base metals for this collection of gems. The most sought-after gemstone in this collection is emeralds.

The collection proudly boasts 40 pieces, which includes earrings, an ear-cuff range and bracelets.

The collection can be viewed at Charles Creig Hyde Park.
