Fairfax & Roberts has partnered with The Westmead Institute for Medical Research (WIMR) to create a bespoke collection ‘Taia’. The Taia collection features a bespoke necklace and bracelet available for sale, with profits donated to WIMR’s lifesaving work.

Launching more than two decades ago, WIMR is making life-changing breakthroughs in medical research and applying these discoveries to some of the world’s most serious diseases, including COVID-19, cancers, neurological disorders, HIV, diabetes, vision disorders, heart, kidney and liver issues and deadly viruses.

THE MEANING BEHIND THE NAME, TAIA

The name Taia, derives from Greek mythology. Theia, is the Titan goddess of light and the goddess who endowed gold, silver and gems with their brilliance and intrinsic value.

Theia is also the mother of the sun, moon and dawn. The meaning behind the collection title resonates deeply with the work WIMR carries out, being the light and hope that medical research and related discoveries and improvements in patient care, brings about in many people’s lives, while also reflecting the partnership with jewellery house, Fairfax & Roberts.

THE TAIA COLLECTION DESIGN

line

The Taia collection design was crafted after a visit to the WIMR facility where Fairfax & Roberts had the fortunate opportunity to meet with some of the amazing team of researchers and witnessed firsthand the working laboratories where breakthrough science is developed.  

The Taia collection design represents that breakthrough moment, when inspiration hits, when clarity and healing is found.

The black element is a metaphor for the uncertainty felt when faced with illness, and the darkness of a life-threatening diagnosis. The bright, white light shines through the darkness, it’s strong and clear.  It’s the knowledge that brilliant minds are at work, fighting the good fight for everyone in need. From the darkness, comes the light
