Azza Fahmy has further evolved its classic Wonders of Nature collection with 15 new handcrafted designs. Floral and animal motifs including butterflies, ladybirds, bees and peacocks have been reimagined by Head of Design Amina Ghali in a stunning array of yellow gold and sterling silver jewels with diamonds and coloured gems.

The collection’s central theme is the iconic Serpent motif, which has been featured in jewellery design for Milennia. Jewels include a coiling 18 karat yellow gold bangle and pair of hoop earrings, both set with diamond and gem-encrusted Serpent heads, whilst a gold and silver Snake ring spreads across two fingers and is set with a large 10-carat green amethyst.
Amina Ghali explains that as a "symbol of love, fertility, wisdom and protective properties, we have sensitively re-defined the serpent motif emulating elements of its body detail to create a sleek, non-intimidating, chic appeal."

Other jewels in the collection are created in Azza Fahmy’s trademark sterling silver with yellow gold. These include the statement Peacock Collar, an open necklace crafted from gold and silver in a delicate lace effect depicting a trailing peacock’s tail. The highly detailed chunky Jungle Cuff is also made in silver and gold, further adorned with champagne diamonds and rubies.
