To blend modernity and tradition, contemporary jewelers presents their object d’art with these traditional-crafted works, including renowned Hong Kong jewellery designer Dickson Yewn’s ‘Golden Kaiserihind Butterfly' brooch (lot 278) which captures the beauty of butterflies in nature, the Song-Dynasty inspired ‘Le Faisan Doré brooch (lot 282) by international Chinese brand TTF while emerging talent Yici Zhao presents ‘The Prelude’ brooch (lot 281) in the shape of a ruyi which symbolises luck and artistically reflects China’s unique cultural and historical core of the ‘The Central Axis of Beijing'.
