Gi! is a precious jewellery range inspired by the visionary African giraffe. Elegance, Johannesburg’s destination jeweller, introduce this uniquely African-range of fine jewellery inspired by the stately giraffe. The giraffe can reach what others cannot yet remains grounded with a far-reaching future view. The range comprises celebratory pieces with a contemporary take on the giraffe motif – including earrings, rings, necklaces and bracelets – available in a variety of shades of 14kt gold and precious gems. The Gi! collection is now available at Elegance in Bedford Centre, Melrose Arch and Sandton City.

Elegance recently celebrated their 50th year as Johannesburg’s destination jeweller of choice and the same design team behind the ubiquitous Nom Nom range is behind the new Gi! Range. “Gi! is inspired by the ever-elegant giraffe, and named after Gianna, my niece,” says creative director Oresti Mavrodaris. “Due to its sheer height, the giraffe is a visionary creature. It eats the best leaves from the tops of trees which other animals can’t reach, and yet it remains grounded, gentle and graceful. This intelligent creature has a very different view of the world and keeps its eyes on the horizon. It is an inspirational animal who reminds us to keep looking to the future and not to look down at the ground and lose focus of our goals. Above all, it is truly African, and stands out above the rest – as does the Gi! range.”
