As Wallace Chan once said, "I work on each piece of work till no room to improve." This is the spirit of the craftsmen that they seek perfection at each stage of the workflow.

Jewels are all always lady's love. The charm and beauty in them shines and make these ladies stands out elegantly in the crowd. If the ladies are also are well dressed, graceful mannered and with great knowledge, they become the girls of class. The pearl's mildness, the warmth of ruby, the hardness of the diamond, the calmness from Tanzanite, the sensitivity of tourmaline. the wisdom from amethyst, the restrain of jade, these precious stones decorate the ladies and reflect their temperament.

At the beginning of this year, Italian designer Alessio Boschi designed a series of necklaces using a them named after Piazza Navona, a square in Rome. With rose gold, he sculptured four river gods, the center of the square. The main stone was lifted by the gods and around them are emerald and Paraiba which stand for fountain in the square. This creative design, artisan craftsmanship, and unconventional idea are all well expressed in this piece of the art. It is a sculpture, art work, history and culture. It tells a story of 400 years old.

Jewelry expert Wallace Chan is famous for his excellent technical esthetical skills in International antique and jewelry design field. Last year he was invited to Paris Biennale des Antiquaires. He was the first and only Chinese exhibitor who had ever been invited to this event. His work name is "YuLuQingChan". The word "Chan" meaning cricket has the same pronunciation as gompa. His invention (Wallace Cut) combines the technologies of relief sculpture, intaglio carving and jewel cut.

What is jewelry design?

The journey starts with hand drawing from the designer, followed by selecting stone, blueprint, engraving wax model, casting precious stone, setting stones, polishing. It usually takes a few months or even months for a team to complete a precious jewel. And sometimes, they have to make adjustments as needed.

As Wallace Chan once said, "I work on each piece of work till no room to improve." This is the spirit of the craftsmen that they seek perfection at each stage of the workflow.

Besides knowing the nature of the material they use, the designers also need to understand the culture and philosophy about the things to be made. they also have to understand optics, gemology, chromatology, metallurgy and even ergonomic so that they can make the best out of the precious stone.

As OGP develops, more seminars are held in London, Shanghai and New York. We get to make known antiques from different centuries, introduce many jewelry designers, mosaicist, polishers and casters to the public.
