“When you’re covered with love, grace and forgiveness you transform a broken past into something beautiful. Legacy Collection symbolises that while scars remain, they remind us of how peace and reconciliation were achieved in South Africa and can occur across our world.” – Charmaine Taylor.
Hand-crafted and encased in precious metal, every Legacy Collection piece – from dazzling jewellery to iconic art – is created from the original fence of South Africa’s Robben Island prison, the notorious Cape Town Island prison that housed freedom fighters including Nelson Mandela, Ahmed Kathrada, Walter Sisulu and many more during South Africa’s oppressive apartheid years.
Crafted from the rugged, raw fence, Legacy Collection jewellery bears the tactile scars of South Africa’s past, while reflecting the powerful spirit of those who overcame. Every Legacy Collection creation is limited-edition and comes with a unique serial number and a certificate of authenticity.
