HABIB has unveiled its timeless collection, ‘The Gift of Happiness,’ which beautifully unites Malaysia’s rich heritage in a spectrum of colours.  This special release for Merdeka  coincides with the jewellery showcase at KLCC, taking place until 13th August 2023.

According to Dato’ Sri Meer Habib, Group Executive Chairman of HABIB Jewels,”This year, we are amplifying our roots, a steadfast commitment we have always upheld. Our core pillars, namely our brand’s motto, ‘The Gift of Happiness,’ and our identity as a proud Malaysian brand hold immense significance and we seek to highlight them. Our aim by underscoring our motto, ‘The Gift of Happiness’ is to evoke joy and wonder, recreating the experience of giving and receiving gifts. We also incorporated vibrant campaign visuals that are inspired by our national flag, the Jalur Gemilang, symbolising Malaysian pride”. 

“Additionally, as a tribute to Malaysia’s rich heritage, we are introducing a new edition of 999.9 gold wafer coins featuring different kebaya designs and matching brooches. We strive to infuse our products with the essence of Malaysian flair and culture as it is our way of honouring our roots and connecting better with our loyal customers. The essence of our Malaysian identity runs through every piece we create, serving as a reminder of our rich heritage and our unwavering commitment to our valued customers,” he added. 

As part of its special Merdeka collection, HABIB has launched its exquisite 999.9 gold wafer coins, featuring stunning designs inspired by the Kebaya attire and adorned with traditional brooches or kerongsang.

Reflecting on his inspirations, Dato’ Sri Meer Habib stated, “As a young observer, I was profoundly moved by my father’s passion when it came to adorning customers with precious jewels. The sheer delight and newfound confidence that radiated from their faces left an indelible impression on me. Witnessing the profound impact that sparkling gems can have on people’s lives, I felt compelled to embark on my own journey within the realm of HABIB.” 

The Merdeka Collection of Gold Wafer Coins: The Kebaya Series by HABIB comprises five variants of Kebaya Riau Pahang and Dokoh Rantai Kebaya Kebarung and Kerongsang Emas Bulat Kebaya Nyonya and Kerongsang Thoe Kebaya Perlis and Kerongsang Rantai Kebaya Kota Bharu and Kerongsang Daun Sukun.
