The Debut Launch of Bouchier by Designer Melinda Zeman

A JOURNEY INTO PLAYFUL LUXURY

A new bold, globally minded fine-jewellery house from Hong Kong,

devoted to diamonds and street-chic women.

On Pedder is proud to announce the debut launch of Bouchier, by designer Melinda Zeman, with a special event at On Pedder New World Tower in early March 2021.

(2021年2月1日,香港)On Pedder 隆重宣布, 香港設計師Melinda Zeman 的首個珠寶品牌BOUCHIER將於2021年3月上旬在中環新世界大廈On Pedder展出多個不同風格的系列。

Established in Hong Kong in 2019 by Melinda Zeman, who is half-Chinese/half-Ghanaian, the fine-jewellery house captures her multi-cultural sensibility and targets modern, self-determined, independent women who make bold, “playful luxury” style statements. “Bouchier uses diamonds, 18K gold and precious gemstones to create pieces to express your personality — which could be classic or cutting-edge, but not pretentious,” Zeman says.

BOUCHIER由中非混血兒Melinda Zeman於2019年在香港創立,其作品充分展現她多元化的時尚觸覺和獨立自主的當代女性特質,打造出前衛跳脫而不失奢華的獨特風格。Zeman說道:「Bouchier的產品以瑰麗堂皇的鑽石、18K金和珍貴的寶石設計來突出個人魅力,既屬經典,也是尖端前衛,平日佩戴不會顯得太過隆重。」

Enchanted by jewellery from a young age, Zeman’s creative inspirations have ranged from traditional Chinese period dramas, where elegant female characters were adorned in intricate gold pieces, to the golden age of MTV, where hip-hop artists, R’n’B singers and pop icons expressed their bold, individual, decorated style. “Beyond a status symbol,” she explains, “I learned that jewellery signified poise and confidence.”

Melinda自小對珠寶首飾非常迷戀,她的創作靈感從中國古裝劇中女角色配戴金壁輝煌的首飾,還有經典 MTV 內大膽前衛的嘻哈和R&B歌手造型風格。她解釋說:「我了解到珠寶除了是身份的象徵,亦象徵著優雅與自信。」

Bouchier’s best-sellers and iconic pieces will be available at the On Pedder special event. The innovative, eye-catching curations range from “huggie” small-hoop earrings to chain-inspired bracelets and rings, as well as stackable twist-tie rings with a neon touch. Guests will be invited to meet the designer as well as place custom requests — particularly for made-to-order ring and bracelet sizing.

Bouchier一系列熱賣和標誌性單品將於On Pedder的特別展覽中有售。破格創新,耀眼奪目的款式包括「huggie」小圈耳環到鏈環設計的手鏈和戒指,以及帶有螢光配色的扭結設計等。設計師亦會親臨展覽現場與客人面交流,展覽亦提供戒指和手鐲尺寸定制服務。

“Bouchier is synonymous with luxury and unabashed playfulness,” Zeman adds. “I believe every day should be vibrant, with room for adaptability, and wearing jewellery should always be a thrill.”

Melinda補充:「Bouchier是代表著奢華與玩味兼備的代名詞,希望能為佩戴者帶來自信和喜悅。我認為每一天都應該要充滿活力,給予自己想像空間 。」

 

Cartier Unveils The Culture of Design Campaign Featuring Seven Iconic Designs

The Reflection of Rebellion – Juste un Clou Bracelet

 

For Cartier, it all starts with the design. An uncompromising feature: the line is clean and precise. This radical concept, conceived by one of the only Maisons capable of designing creations that form a unique collection of cult jewellery and watchmaking designs, will become Cartier’s signature.

Tank, Trinity, Juste un Clou, Santos, Love, Panthère or Ballon Bleu, instantly recognizable, these collections are based on four main principles of creation: the purity of the line, the accuracy of the shape, the precision of proportions, the precious details.

This intelligence of design places objects seamlessly within their time as well as within the future. Contemporary, although vintage to some, these designs stand the test of time: classic, eternal, essential. They can all be reinvented and continue to inspire conversations: a boundless source of creative energy which Cartier dares to develop over time. A cultural, but also emotional heritage. These pieces are heirlooms. The connection that we have to these pieces continues to grow with time. A powerful feeling directly linked to the idea of heritage and the timelessness that they symbolise.

Juste un Clou

Imagined in the 1970s by designer Aldo Cipullo for Cartier New York, theJuste un Clou bracelet is the reflection of a nonconformist, rebellious and provocative era. On the bangle, before the head of the nail, five ridges are engraved in the bracelets, which are reminiscent of flat-headed hardware nails with identical engravings. The eye for detail goes even further with a diamond shape that has been reworked into its lines and the end the faceted tip. On the diamond versions, the choice of setting informs the shape and geometry of the creations. Four different settings are used for Juste un Clou. On the diamond-paved tip, the graduated cut emphasises volume and perspective. With Juste un Clou, Cartier perfects the purity of an ordinary shape and turns a simple nail into a jewel with pure, radical and uncompromising lines. The entire nail is present, but more elegant, less sharp, like a rock-chic statement all at once. The expression of Cartier‘s design vision.

Tiffany Acquires Exceptional 80-Carat Diamond To Reimagine Its Historic 1939 World’s Fair Necklace

Tiffany & Co. announced today that it will reimagine an archival Tiffany high jewelry necklace from 1939. The original aquamarine design has been modernized with an extraordinary oval diamond of over 80 carats, the largest diamond ever offered by Tiffany and eclipsed only by the Tiffany Diamond, which famously is not for sale.

 

The diamond necklace will be unveiled in celebration of the momentous 2022 reopening of the transformed Tiffany Fifth Avenue flagship store, making history once again, just as the original necklace did nearly a century ago when it debuted at the World’s Fair in Queens, New York.

 

“What better way to mark the opening of our transformed Tiffany flagship store in 2022 than to reimagine this incredible necklace from the 1939 World’s Fair, one of our most celebrated pieces when we opened our doors on 57th Street and Fifth Avenue for the first time,” said Victoria Reynolds, Tiffany & Co. Chief Gemologist. “The new necklace perfectly reflects our brand heritage as a New York luxury jeweler, whose founder was known as the ‘King of Diamonds.’”

 

The breathtaking center stone—an over-80-carat, D color, internally flawless oval diamond—is not only very rare, it is a symbol of Tiffany’s industry-first approach to diamond traceability. Responsibly sourced in Botswana, Africa, the diamond will be set by Tiffany artisans in New York City.

 

The original necklace’s sizable aquamarine and exceptional diamond forms entranced the millions who came to admire the international spectacle. With its forward-looking theme, “Dawn of a New Day,” the 1939 World’s Fair promised a glimpse into “the World of Tomorrow.” The fair’s intention was to inspire, in its over 44 million visitors, the dream of a better and more effervescent tomorrow. Tiffany’s masterpiece did just that—setting the stage for the opening of its iconic flagship store on 57th Street and Fifth Avenue the following year, in 1940—foreshadowing what will be a similarly historic moment for the brand in 2022.

 

Tiffany has acquired many rare and remarkable gemstones for its jewelry designs in its 183-year history, including the legendary Tiffany Diamond, one of the world’s largest and finest fancy yellow diamonds, as well as the Hooker Emerald, now exhibited at the Smithsonian and the Mazarin Diamonds, purchased by Tiffany at the auction of the French Crown Jewels.

Vacheron Constantin Métiers d’Art The legend of the Chinese Zodiac Year of the Ox

Vacheron Constantin is pursuing its dialogue with collectors and passionate devotees of Haute Horlogerie by enriching its Métiers d’Art The legend of the Chinese zodiac with the sign of the ox. Symbolizing perseverance, loyalty and patience, it will take over from the rat at the Chinese New Year on February 12th 2021. Two new creations, realised in twelve models each, combine the technical excellence of Caliber 2460 G4 with the beauty of artistic crafts.

Paper-cutting, at the crossroads between Eastern and Western cultures

China, a nation with which Vacheron Constantin has been cultivating special ties since 1845, first introduce the paper-cutting technique known as Jianzhi, a popular art echoed in Swiss culture through its famous Scherenschnitt paper-cutting. This artistic approach, highlighted in the Métiers d’Art The legend of the Chinese zodiac, has been given a fresh interpretation thanks to the expertise of the master engravers and enamellers.

 

A llied artistic crafts

The foliage motif appearing on the dial and based on classic Chinese iconography is etched directly in the metal. The pattern remains semi-embedded and stands out from its gold base by a subtle stage-setting of variously accentuating reliefs creating a depth effect. This makes the vegetation appear to be floating over the dial.

 

Then comes the stage of Grand Feu enamelling, an ancestral technique that remains the preserve of a very few particularly skilled artisans. By applying the enamel in successive layers, the enamel specialist enhances the intensity of the blue or bronze-toned dial. Achieving the necessary mastery of colour and of reactions to firing at temperatures between 800 and 900 degrees Celsius calls for an expertise that can only be acquired over long years of experience. The animal, made of platinum or pink gold, is hand engraved and delicately applied to the dial centre.

 

A movement that leaves plenty of space for artistic expression

Calibre 2460 G4 makes it possible to create a distinctive and ideal stage-setting for the decorative arts, by giving the central dial motif a starring role. The hands-free time display is achieved through four apertures showing the hours, minutes, days and dates. These indications – the first two of the dragging variety and the last two of the jumping type – proudly embody the longstanding savoir-faire of the Maison in designing and developing original displays. Clearly visible through the sapphire crystal back of the platinum or pink gold case, the 22-carat oscillating weight features a decor inspired by the Maltese cross emblem. All movement components are indeed finely finished in accordance with the criteria of the Hallmark of Geneva, a quality label of which Vacheron Constantin is the most faithful representative.

DIOR PRESENTS THE NEW ROSE DES VENTS AND OUI COLLECTIONS

An iconic odyssey, the Rose des Vents collection designed by Victoire de Castellane has now been enhanced with new bracelets, necklaces and studs in pink, white and yellow gold. Reinvented, the medallion is delicately openworked, exalting it emblematic eight pointed star like a good luck charm. A resolutely contemporary creation to give and receive.

Punctuated with diamonds, the emblematic Oui collection designed by Victoire de Castellane is now enhanced with new bracelets adorned with a delicate cord in seventeen shades. In yellow or pink gold, these three irresistible little letters celebrating love, friendship and sisterhood whisper tender declarations. An ode to the beauty of unbreakable bonds.

Song Hye Kyo Sends Her Season’s Greetings with Chaumet Jewelry

As the weather cools and the holiday season nears, Chaumet’s Brand Ambassador in the APAC region, Ms. Song Hye Kyo, once again radiates charm in the Maison’s creations from the Bee My Love, Laurier and Liens Collections in a new set of photographs that are sure to bring cheer and merriment to the end of the year celebrations!

 

Bee My Love collection apt, as the bee is a symbol of sovereignty and an imperial emblem that provides the inspiration for the geometric honeycomb creations of the collection that perfectly complements Song’s sophisticated grace.

 

The Laurier Collection continues the theme of kings and queens as the wearer of the sprig alludes to a future filled with success and achievement – a worthy cause for celebration that lights up every precious moment in one’s life with joy and happiness.

 

With Christmas around the corner, we come full circle on another year, marking a time of unity and expression of eternity that has inspired the Jeux de Liens Harmony medallion. With its two asymmetrical parts representing the union of two people who choose to share the best of life together, love is indeed all we need during this auspicious season that is shared with lovers and loved ones alike!

 

So whether frosted in diamonds, standing out in vibrant yellow gold, or wrapped in the warmth of rose gold, gift your loved ones with the sovereign prestige of Chaumet this Christmas, as the season of love and family marks new beginnings in the coming new year and beyond!

 

Hermès Watch – Arceau Horse

Arceau Horse

Designed by Henri d’Origny in 1978, the Arceau round watch lends its singular design to a new stylistic expression. Its round case with stirrup-inspired asymmetrical lugs, along with its sloping numerals evoking a galloping horse, secure its place in a timeless and playful universe.

The result of Hermès’s saddlery and leathermaking expertise, 395 mini studs – individually placed on the leather dial of the new Arceau Horse – compose an equestrian motif. The meticulous studding is complemented by the delicate crafting of the black or white leather, both miniaturised to the scale of the dial. The spirited horse comes to life framed by a steel case set with 100 diamonds and secured to the wrist by a calfskin strap matching the dial colour – all produced in the Hermès Horloger workshops.
