Fancy 22K gold, meet rugged Italian leather. We’re not quite sure why this fetishistic pairing hasn’t taken the accessories domain by storm, but it will surely be hard to resist Poh Heng Jewellery’s latest collection of leather-and-gold necklaces and bracelets.

Poh Heng’s ORO22 Leather Collection is at once fierce and wearable, with both out-there necklaces for the bold and sleek bracelets for the meek but no less stylish. If plain gold accessories are too “bling” for you, and studded leather cuffs veer too much into teenage goth territory, then the balanced pieces from the ORO22 Leather Collection are for you.

Crafted from fine Italian leather and 22K gold, the bracelets are available in six designs and are incredibly versatile – not too showy for the office, but edgy enough for an after-hours cocktail party. Two styles, the Bonhomie and the Felicity, can even double up as pendants.  

Here’s the clincher: For each bracelet style, you can choose from an array of coloured leather bands in black, brown, fuschia, olive, green, purple or red. The individualist in us is cheering already.

Complement your unique Poh Heng bracelet with a statement necklace, also from the ORO22 Leather Collection. Available in four designs, these striking show-stoppers each embody a geometric theme.

The Gladiatress necklace, in particular, is a clear winner: Strong chains of black leather are offset by elegant, delicate loops of pale gold. In contrast, gold comes to the fore in the Noveau necklace, with an angular, diamond-cut gold pendant and a sleek adjustable leather strap.
