As a British woman with strong African ties, Betty Balaba’s designs developed as a result of her passion for travel, which led to her dream of creating contemporary fine jewellery with equatorial influences.
Her collections are inspired by elements of a continent, incorporating land, sea and air. While the pieces are influenced by Africa’s nature, themes and colours. The materials used in the ranges include pearls, silver and 18 carat gold set with precious stones such as diamonds and emeralds. All of this creates a series of collections that are modern and easy to wear.
