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.
The Hong Kong Jewellery Design Competition is jointly organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), Hong Kong Jewellers’ & Goldsmiths’ Association, Hong Kong Jewellery & Jade Manufacturers Association, Hong Kong Jewelry Manufacturers’ Association and the Diamond Federation of Hong Kong, China. This year marked the 21st edition of the competition which, over the past two decades, has served to identify many budding talents and promote Hong Kong jewellery products to an international audience.
