Chelsy Davy’s jewellery collection inspired by Africa

Chelsy Davy was inspired by her African heritage when creating her new jewellery line.
The blonde beauty – who previously dated Britain’s Prince Harry – recently launched her AYA collection and revealed that she wanted to show Africa’s rich culture in her creations.
Chelsy said: “Africa has always been an integral part of my life and will always be my home. It is an absolutely fascinating continent and I was inspired by its rich culture and the bold and vibrant nature of African design.”
Chelsy, 30 – who was born and raised in Zimbabwe – studied at the Gemological Institute of America before launching her ethical accessories collection, which features rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets.
She said: “I wanted to do something a little different and showcase these beautiful colored gemstones in modern and contemporary designs.
“The gemstones in the pieces are so magnificent on their own that they don’t need diamonds. After studying colored stones at GIA, I am now obsessed with all the different gemstones out there and would love to work with gemstones from all over Africa.”
