Laika was a stray dog found in a street of Moscow. She was trained up and launched in Sputnik 2 in 1957 as the first animal to orbit the earth. She now still is somewhere in the sky.
The Laika collection showcases 18 karat yellow gold, grey Akoya pearl directly sourced from designer Ikuko Kurahone’s home country Japan, yellow and orange sapphires and tsavorite. The focus of the design is to add movement to a ring. The pearl charm moves around your fingers like a child’s toy, putting smile on everyone’s face. It adds another dimension to iKuria’s playful, light-wear and unique fine jewellery design.
