Champion's earrings demonstrate creative take on this year's theme

HONG KONG, Aug 10, 2020 - (ACN Newswire) - The results of the 21st Hong Kong Jewellery Design Competition have been announced, with designer Lee Wing-yan, sponsored by Luk Fook Holdings (International) Limited, taking the top prize with her entry "Freedom and Bondage". The main design element of her earrings is a group of flying doves breaking free from their tethers to reclaim their freedom. Ms Lee took the Best of Show Award & Craftsmanship and Technology Award in the Open Group in recognition of her excellence in jewellery design and craftsmanship. The theme for this year's Jewellery Design Competition was "Relative, Compatible".

Another Best of Show Award winner in the Open Group was designer Tang Yuk-ying, sponsored by C.S.S. Jewellery Co. Limited, who created "The Harmony of Sea and Land" using blue and yellow ribbons to represent the symbiosis between ocean and land. Her creative and delicate bracelet expresses how having an open mind and loving heart allows people to live in harmony. Designer Chareine Lee, sponsored by Charente Fine Jewelry, also won a Best of Show Award in the Open Group with her entry "Eternity". Her meticulous pendant shaped as a set of unique gears represents the "eternity of time".

In the Student Group, Chung King-wai from the Hong Kong Design Institute created an exceptional pendant to take the top place. His entry "Metal and Wood" is a simple yet striking design combining two contrasting materials that reflects the competition's theme. Hattie Chan from the Technological and Higher Education Institute of Hong Kong with her entry "Coral" and Law Yuen-kwan from the Hong Kong Design Institute with her entry "Victoria" were joint first runners-up in the Student Group.
