AYA x Gemfields Exclusive Emerald Ear Jacket Earrings for Walk for Giants

by AYA

 Gemstone      Emerald 
 Carats      5.16 Emeralds
  Gold Type      18kt Yellow Gold
These delicate emerald ear jacket & stud earrings are perfect for those who covet timeless and unique jewellery. The versatility of this stunning earring allows for it to be worn two ways, as a simple but beautiful emerald adorned stud or as an ear jacket, where the earring hangs perfectly just under the earlobe.

Using the finest Gemfield's emeralds sourced in Northern Zambia, near the Kafue River, these earrings take inspiration from jewellery worn by some of Africa's indigenous tribes women. Worn to symbolise feminine elegance and beauty.
It was important for AYA to use Emeralds in the design as they are believed to stand both fertility and rebirth which resonates deeply given the initiative we are supporting in Walk for Giants. We want to convey that nature is fragile and delicate and that we have a responsibility to protect and preserve it. We must allow future generations to be able to marvel at some of its most amazing creations and the African elephant is no better example of this.

Walk For Giants 


On 17 August 2020, the international conservation charity, Space for Giants released Walk for Giants in partnership with Gemfields. The fundraising and awareness-building campaign will kick off with the release of two exclusive capsule collections: a 44-piece collection from Gemfields, a world-leading supplier of responsibly sourced coloured gemstones; and a series of 15 sustainable collections from NET-A-PORTER, the world’s leading online luxury fashion retailer. Proceeds from these capsule collections will bring critical support to protect Africa’s elephants and their natural habitat.

Space for Giants is committed to securing the ecological and economic value that nature conservation offers. Especially in this time of crisis, when travel and tourism are impacted, wildlife and natural habitats are even more vulnerable to exploitation. Both capsules are showcased in a series of stunning images, made possible by the support of Gemfields.

The Walk for Giants Campaign was shot by Francesco Carrozzini, with creative direction by Riccardo Ruini, featuring models Arizona Muse and Selena Forrest at Enasoit Game Sanctuary in Laikipia, Kenya.

All our AYA pieces are made from sustainably sourced materials and ethically sourced gemstones.
