AngloGold Ashanti’s Celestial Origins

Deals with the mythical origin of gold and the story behind this precious material. Designers  were given 500g of 18 carat gold along with a simple brief: create something exceptional, something that really tells the story of and speaks to the origins of gold.

Kristen Malan’s Halo is an exquisite headpiece, made up of 495 separate gold elements and 45 moveable sections. Kristen explains, “Halo, a reverential, other worldly symbol associated with greatness, celebrates the celestial moment when gold, the most precious of all elements, came into being.”
