For the lovely mother of two, Irene Steffen, winning the title of Mrs Asia International 2013 has brought her the confidence to partake in new, exciting challenges. One of these is taking the spotlight as the new Umayal Collection brand ambassador.

Being the wife of Q Lifestyle Managing DirectorJoachim Steffen, Irene has been using various QNET products for several years now, so it is an honour for her to be the new face of the Umayal Collection. She had first been able to experience wearing a piece from the Collection when she received the Sylvan necklace as a gift from Datin Sri Umayal Eswaran. She remembers wearing this with her traditional Kebaya dress and garnering the attention of her friends, who could not take their eyes off the necklace. The piece remains her favourite to this day because she finds that it suits her Asian look wonderfully and has a particularly stunning design.

The Umayal Collection celebrates nature with simple but elegantly designed jewellery which add a distinctive touch to the wearer’s sense of style. Inspired by the rustic beauty of tree branches and the intricate lacey designs of corals from the sea, the pieces in the Umayal Collection are artfully fashioned from silver and ornamented with delicate gemstones. Each piece is handmade with the utmost care by skilled craftsmen, ensuring its uniqueness and quality. Created to emulate nature at its best, the Umayal Collection is meant to appeal to those with a passion for nature.

There are nine themes featured in the Umayal Collection: the Peacock Baroque SetFloret Empress SetGlacier Leaf Set,Viola Coral SetRowan SetNautilus SetIce Queen SetSylvan Set, and Misty Pendant. Each set draws inspiration from a unique element of nature and celebrates its elegance and splendour. The Umayal Collection serves as a tribute to Mother Nature’s ingenuity and has been designed to connect with the hearts and souls of world-class women who have a strong love for this natural heritage.
