Backes & Strauss Green African Elephant (Gemfields Walk for Giants Capsule Collection)

Backes & Strauss has created the unique Green African Elephant watch exclusively for Gemfields’ Walk for Giants capsule collection.

Gemfields is a world-leading supplier of responsibly sourced coloured gemstones. In partnership with the international conservation organization Space for Giants, Gemfields has recently launched a 44-piece Walk for Giants capsule collection of jewellery and watches. Its proceeds will be donated to support the protection of Africa’s elephants and their natural habitat.

The Walk for Giants collection by Gemfields offers creations by 12 brand partners: AYA, Backes & Strauss, Bina Goenka, Fabergé, Fehmida Lakhany, Francis de Lara, GFG Jewellery by Nilufer, Margery Hirschey, Sandy Leong, VAK Fine Jewels, Valani Atelier and Zoe & Morgan. Supporting this campaign, Backes & Strauss has created the Green African Elephant watch, a dazzling ladies’ timepiece adorned with diamonds and Zambian green emeralds.

The Green African Elephant watch features a slim diamond-set case attached to a tactile bracelet set with two rows of carefully selected diamonds and a third, middle row of emeralds from Gemfields’ Kagem mine in Zambia. The natural green mother-of-pearl dial of this timepiece features a meticulously hand-painted elephant, the emblem of “Walk for Giants”.
