The Kyi includes a hand-forged bronze double arc adorned with lapis gemstones in various shapes. Featured on a long 14k gold-filled chain, natural lapis square gemstones move freely. The Kyi is the perfect layering necklace, and pairs well with our short geometric pendants.
The Kyi is a part of our Femina collection, which celebrates simple, modern forms and natural materials. Based on striking neutrals, intentional strokes of color punctuate the collection. Each piece is named after an influential and inspiring woman, who has made a tremendous impact on the world.
Aung San Suu Kyi, recipient of The Nobel Peace Prize in 1991, is an international symbol of peaceful resistance. An advocate for democracy in Myanmar, Kyi spent almost 15 years under house arrest. As one of the world’s most prominent political prisoners, Kyi ultimately became de facto leader by democratic election in 2015.
