BEJEWELLED TREASURES

From the early myths surrounding precious gemstones to their first discovery in India, China and Brazil, and the painstaking creation of timeless modern-day treasures, Lane Crawford takes you on a journey to immerse yourself in the wonder of the earth’s most beautiful gifts.

 

 

GREEN WITH ENVY

 

Known as the stone of heaven, jadeite is steeped in mystery and majesty and has been celebrated in all its beauty in sculpture and jewellery since the Neolithic period. In Chinese culture, jade was seen as a link between heaven and earth and embodied Confucian virtues of wisdom, justice, compassion, purity and modesty.

 

While instantly recognised in its vivid green hue, jade comes in various shades - from lavender and white to red and yellow - and given its range of luminous colours and versatility, it is becoming increasingly popular with both Eastern and Western jewellery designers.

 

Acclaimed jadeite jeweller Samuel Kung juxtaposes polished raw shapes with a traditional Chinese aesthetic and delicate diamond settings in pieces that are as timeless as the material itself. Neither standardised nor formulaic, jadeite's most important qualities are colour, transparency and texture, with the most perfect iterations glossy, glassy, almost luminous, as if lit from within.

 

 

As the Chinese saying goes, "Gold is valuable, but jade is priceless."


 

 

DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER

Throughout history the mesmerizing mystique of diamonds has enthralled kings and queens, moguls and movie stars, evolving into the ultimate possession. Emerging from the Golconda region of India, between the Godavari and Krishna Rivers in Hyderabad, this legendary diamond carpeted valley is mentioned in stories going back some three thousand years, from Marco Polo’s accounts of the wonders of the world to the voyages of Sinbad. In the passage of time, legends, myths and beliefs have intertwined to create the inimitable mystique of the diamond as precious beyond measure.
Objects of desire, symbols of power and status, the diamond has innate dualities; on one hand it is one of the rarest substances on earth, but equally, is formed from carbon, one of the most common elements on the planet; the diamond is at once ethereal and earthy, full of clarity and yet filled with mystery.
Today, in addition to the classic 4C’s of diamond classification (cut, carat, colour, clarity) Lazare Diamonds, focus on ‘Consistency,’ a dedication to the fine art of gem cutting that means every stone is cut to achieve its own personal perfection, with maximum brilliance from every angle.
PERFECTLY PRECIOUS

Strictly speaking, any gemstone outside of the “Big Four” (diamonds, rubies, sapphires and emeralds) has always been considered semi-precious, and the term was originally invented by the industry to describe gems that were more abundant. However, important gemstones are now perceived as the ultimate in rarity, and therefore the ultimate in portable assets with high investment potential.
Contemporary jewellery designers are now utilising a rich colour palette that comes from gem mines across the globe. Italian jeweller Roberto Coin uses an incredible bouquet of coloured stones - from honey coloured gold quartz to shimmering blue topaz - in his architectural designs that mix and celebrate the brilliance and mesmerising hues of nature.
While on the other side of the world, the rich heritage of India can be seen in the cornucopia of colour used by Aishwarya, who select only the most dynamic and bold stones for their inimitable designs.
Discover the beauty of these bejewelled treasures at our exclusive trunk show in store at Lane Crawford Canton Road from October 9 - 25, 2017 and at ifc mall from October 28 - November 13, 2017.

GIGI IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS

“I loved working with Gigi. Her sense of detail and her discerning eye for fashion completely won me over,” says Valerie Messika, founder and creative director of one of fine jewellery’s most innovative contemporary diamond houses.

 

Messika invited Hadid to create a special collection series for the fine jewellery label that is also celebrating the 10th anniversary of its famed Move collection. What Hadid injected was a punk spirit to pieces that are all about stones in motion. “There are at least 16 pieces in pavé, non pavé in rose, white and yellow gold. Earrings, endlessly transformable necklaces, a choker, as well as rings and bracelets that are designed to be worn solo or stacked together,” says Messika who first became enraptured by diamonds as a toddler.

 

    

Her father, a leading diamond dealer, used to bring home stones and allow the young Valerie to play with the gems. Early learning paid off. After working with her father, Valerie launched Messika in 2005 and a Paris fine jewellery atelier and flagship soon followed.

 

“I am always looking for inspirations on my travels, through architecture, interior design - which I am crazy about - by walking in the streets and looking at people’s attitude and style,” says Messika. The Move concept has many dimensions and alongside Hadid’s line, finds anniversary pieces inspired by the work of industrial designer Ron Arad and graphics supremo, Leoh Ming Pei.

 

The beauty of all these pieces is that they don’t just sit there and dazzle, they move and play.

 

Discover more at our exclusive Messika Trunk Show in Lane Crawford ifc mall and Canton Road from September 30 – October 20, 2017.

When artist and visionary jeweller John Hardy first visited Bali in the 1970s, the beauty of the island immediately enchanted him. Inspired by the traditions of the local artisans, he founded an authentic collective with the local craftsmen and unknowingly began his journey to empower the community through the craftsmanship of ancient Bali.

 

There is a distinct strength and mystical beauty in each object that is inspired by the island’s culture that gives birth to dramatic rings and bracelets that are sculptural in form and use precious metals and stones to enchanting effect.

 

        

 

 

Each piece is crafted from original sketches using an eight-step process descended the jewellers of Bali’s ancient courts. Collections are brought to life through ‘wax carving’, where skilled carvers create an expect replica based solely from the designer’s sketch. This is continually refined until it reaches the perfect form that can take up to several weeks for each piece. After, the wax is casted in silver or gold; it is then moulded, delicately assembled and finished, all by hand by master artisans. Committed to community, artisanship and sustainability, John Hardy is more than jewellery, it is an eternal connection to the source of inspiration.


Discover the sustainable and luxury jewellery of John Hardy in store at Lane Crawford Canton Road from August 18 – 27 and at ifc mall from September 1 – 10, 2017. Highlights of the show include the 26 one-of-a-kind pieces from the highly coveted Cinta Collection, which means ‘love’ in the Indonesian language.


 

Meet three artisans from Bali who will be showcasing their craftsmanship including sketching, wax carving and chain making. Take this unique opportunity to have your own John Hardy piece exclusively engraved on site by the artisans at Lane Crawford ifc mall on September 2, 2017.
