To celebrate the year of the Dragon we are delighted to present our limited-edition Dragon Earrings, and share the story of how this charismatic and gifted creature managed to secure its place on the Chinese Zodiac.

Long, long ago, the Jade Emperor invited all animals to compete in a race with the purpose of selecting 12 animals to be his personal guards. The Emperor sent an immortal messenger into the land of men with the message that those 12 who finished through the heavenly gates first would be included in the Zodiac.

The start of the race was along the bank of a fast-flowing river which the animals would need to negotiate to reach the finish line on the other side.

In fifth place came the mighty dragon, who flew over the finishing line breathing fire out of his mouth. “Why did you not come first?” asked the puzzled Jade Emperor. The dragon explained that along the way he had to stop and make rain for all the people and creatures in the world, which caused him to be delayed. Then, whilst flying over the river he noticed a little rabbit set adrift on a log, so he blew a puff of wind to carry the log to the shore. Pleased with the dragons acts of kindness, the Jade Emperor granted him the fifth place in the Zodiac. Our Zodiac Dragon Earrings encompass this act of kindness and hold the spirit of the Dragon within its ruby eyes.

These earrings have been designed by Alexander to honor these powerful mythological creatures and to commemorate the lucky Year of the Dragon.

It all began when Patrick created a pair of earrings for his wife Catja, who wore them to the hair salon, where her hairdresser saw them and requested that a pair be made for her. Soon afterwards, all the other ladies who went to the salon were asking for similar earrings and from this gift of love, our journey as Africa’s luxury house began.

Patrick and Catja have injected their style and creativity into the magical environment of their home and studio in the sanctuary of the Umwimsi Valley where they brought up their four sons.

From day one, the boys grew up immersed in the creative surroundings of their father’s studio. Alexander, Forbes, Patrick Jnr and Benjamin infused the house of Mavros with their enthusiasm, creativity and passion with a serious pinch of fun...

Marrying intricate craftsmanship with an intrepid family heritage, every piece that we make has been designed by a member of the family with the sole intention of bringing delight and showcasing the very best of African luxury.

Love pervades everything connected with our business, from the design and production of our works of art to the care and attention given to serving our customers and friends and, of course, our love of Africa.
