Celebrating a Night of Contemporary Art and Jewels

Asia Week showed its fashionable side last night at Sotheby’s, when Yin Zhao and Nikita Manilal hosted a private dinner and opening for The Literati Within, an S|2 exhibition featuring works by contemporary Western and Chinese artists, along with an exclusive viewing of precious gems. Young collectors dined at an elegant table bedecked with splendid centrepieces of jewellery – including a stunning pair of Van Cleef & Arpels drop earrings and a David Webb diamond bracelet – that will be offered in Sotheby’s 19 April Magnificent Jewels auction. Talks given by Sotheby's worldwide head of contemporary ink art Mee-Seen Loong and jewellery specialist Manilal made the night all the more memorable. Click ahead to see highlights from the evening.
