Luxury London 2019 - In Praise of Bejewelled Beasts


Tears of the African Elephant 4047, Backes & Strauss

A magnificent menagerie of scuttling beetles, bejewelled birds and tiger timepieces celebrates the master craftsmanship of the high jewellery and horology worlds.

Created in partnership with Tears of the African Elephant, a charity committed to reducing the demand for ivory, this Backes & Strauss 18kt white gold watch is decorated with iconographic leaves and a central elephant motif. Ideal cut diamonds make this great creature sparkle, and complement its enamelled tusk and teardrop made of gold.
