Zeemou originally studied interior and architecture design in China, before graduating from the London University of Arts- the collection is a perfect amalgamation of design functionality and beauty- and is testament to the breadth of his studies. Each piece in the collection incorporates a unique movement mechanism- this movement not only creates a new look each time the jewellery is worn, but also creates a different sound, depending on the length of the tube used.

This beautiful collection- designed in 18 carat yellow, white and rose gold, with Japanese Akoya white pearls and Tahitian black pearls- consists of rings pendants, bangles and earrings.

As the main inspiration for his work, Zeemou credits his own mother, stating: ‘’She is a gentle and beautiful woman. She suffered a terrible accident in a fire when I was nine years old, leaving her with scars all over her body. It was a miracle she survived. Then she suffered from breast cancer. The way she fought really changed my perspective on women- showing me how powerful and strong a woman can be. I want to empower women with my jewellery as well as show my admiration and respect for all women. That’s why my first collection is called the ‘Venus’ Collection.’’
