One of the most renowned and dazzling masterpiece to be showcased is “Monet Water Lilies Collection”, where Anna has taken 10 years of planning, designing and assembling to complete.

Anna’s latest ultra-luxe creation and first-ever showcase masterpiece – CHINA RED MAGPIE BROOCH – calls on the Jesuit missionary and painter at National Palace Museum – Giuseppe Castiglione for inspiration. Castiglione was the most famous Western artist in China during the transformative Qing Dynasty and his piece “Immortal Blossoms in an Everlasting Spring” (currently on exhibition at the National Palace Museum) showcases the beauty of China in a western perspective. Inspired by the concept, Anna has constructed this CHINA RED MAGPIE BROOCH on an 18K white gold frame, encrusting with over 500 gemstones ingeniously present a pair of magpies living in the colorful forest. All gemstones are meticulously placed with round brilliant cut diamonds, yellow diamonds, rubies, blue sapphires, moonstones, colored sapphires, chrome tourmaline, and to complete the design, an extraordinary south sea pearl is nestled as the featured gem of the piece .
It is pertinent that the exhibition be presented by “The Belt and Road Initiative” gala dinner, highlighting the harmonious relationship between the countries. The evening will be attended by the international guestlist including prominent celebrities, arts and fashion society figures.
