Anti Zika Jewelry In Singapore

The jewelry brand, “By Invite Only” launched a range of jewelry with refillable citronella beads that protect wearers from Zika spreading mosquitoes.

At the end of August, Singapore reported 41 new cases of the Zika virus. Amidst rumors that the country has developed its own strain of the virus, the National Environmental Agency (NEA) increased monitoring in hot areas to document further outbreaks. In response, residents are hoarding mosquito repellent and sales have spiked across the country, with many stores running out of stock.

A new line of jewelry the Yu Ahn Collection offers a fashionable solution, including bracelet and necklace styles with refillable citronella bead pendants. Citronella is a non-toxic essential oil used in mosquito repellent and is effective against the Aedes aegypti mosquito that spreads dengue fever and carries the Zika virus. The cartridges last up to 7 days and refills are available for about $5.00 dollars.

 

Jade is the Chinese symbol of protection against evil and bad luck. The Yu Ahn Collection offers a play on this concept, as the green citronella inserts are paired with Burmese jade beads. Founder Trixie Khong explains the reason behind the innovation, “We realize that people don’t want to carry mosquito repellent all the time, even though mosquito-born diseases are a problem in Singapore. So as a jewelry designer, we decided to combine the concept of safety with fashion.”

Recently, Springwise looked at a jewelry line for adults that doubles as a teething toy for toddlers to chew on and other decorative wearables.
