Ying Chen Chen Fine Jewellery
The next on my radar for Christmas is Ying Chen's fine jewellery. Ying Chen Chen's eponymous #finejewellery brand was set up by Ying Chen, a jewellery designer, GIA and metalsmith to create unique and poetic jewellery. Enchanted by jewellery, Ying Chen majored in jewellery design and metalsmithing. After graduating from university, she went to Paris to continue her studies in jewellery design. Her main source of inspiration is nature, flora as well as poems, music and travels. She recreates each special scene in the form of jewellery, combining beauty and elegance into timeless pieces, the story and significance behind each piece of jewellery will give the impression. In addition, Ying Chen is obsessed with various coloured gems, and her husband Yang Hua-en, a gem cutter, has flaws in creating the most desired jewellery pieces. I have selected the 'Winter Calm' ring for you, which features Neon Blue - green tourmaline centre stones. The ring expresses transparency, and cleanliness in winter, with diamonds, moonstones and sapphires in harmony giving you the perfect urge to love and treasure.

Mathon Paris, a Paris-based jewellery designer has invited me to preview the third and final chapter of the Les Vergers collection in Paris. And I absolutely fell in love with the collection. Mathon Paris has a strong attachment to the fauna and flora which has been interpreted through their three-part collection. The House of Mathon draws its inspiration from nature and pays tribute to the earth through its naturalist jewellery collections. The three chapters of the Les Vergers collection are a tribute to Roger Mathon, the founder of the House. The Family home called "Les Vergers" is a major source of inspiration for this grandeur collection. The drawings, paintings and sketches of the founder have allowed the creation of this collection in the full heritage of French savour-faire. I have picked up some of my favourite pieces for you to pick from.
Belle De Nuit, Les Vergers, Pink Gold 18k, 6 White Diamonds,072ct, and Laquire
