Win: A Bamboo Leaves ring from Vara of London

Raised in London and now living in Hong Kong, self-taught jewellery designer Mayuri Vara has always been fascinated by art and design. Inspired by her own Indian heritage and her time spent travelling, Vara launched her debut collection of luxury jewellery back in 2014 at The Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea, London.

Her collections range from the more delicate to more ornate pieces. The Taylor & Noor cuff, for example, is a statement piece which takes after style icon Elizabeth Taylor and is adorned with vibrant amethysts in pink and purple whereas the Serpentine open bangle and Diva Drop earrings are more elegant pieces that can be worked into your everyday wardrobe.

The Serpentine bangle and Diva drop earrings are interesting pieces that can elevate any outfit.

Vara of London have just launched a brand new Bamboo Leaves Ring collection in collaboration with Joyce Hong Kong inspired by Hollywood Road and the intricate bamboo details found on the gates of Man Mo temple. Available in 18 karat white or yellow gold, the sophisticated cage-like rings are set with glittering white diamonds on the ‘leaves’ and ‘bamboo’ joints.


The Bamboo Leaves ring pays tribute to bamboo as a symbol of virtue in Chinese culture.

We have a Vara of London Bamboo Leaves Ring (valued at HK$11,000) to giveaway to one of our lucky readers. The ring is made of sterling silver and is set with diamonds on the bamboo joints and vivid green chrome diopside on the leaves.
