Hong Kong Fei Cui Design Biennial Contest Launched

Hong Kong Fei Cui Design Biennial Contest kicks off on 2 March 2019.
The first Hong Kong Fei Cui Design Biennial Contest was officially launched on 2 March 2019 at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre during the Hong Kong International Jewellery Show. Organised by the Hong Kong Jewellery & Jade Manufacturers Association (HKJJA), the spectacular event was well-attended by senior government officials, industry leaders, designers, fei cui connoisseurs and international media. The high-achieving 2015 Miss Hong Kong winner Ms Louisa Mak was invited to share her thoughts and stories on fei cui from a fresh perspective.

In his welcome remarks at the opening, chairman of HKJJA Mr Ken Lo provided a brief introduction to the competition which aims to enhance exchanges in fei cui design, promote the influence of the oriental gemstone at an international level, and offer winning participants an opportunity to exhibit and sell their works at prestigious auctions and museums.

The most amusing moment came when the enthusiastic audience made a guess at the type of fei cui jewellery Ms Mak was fond of. Prominent guests joining the entertaining session included Mrs Cherry Tse, Permanent Secretary for Home Affairs, Mr Samuel Kung, Director of MoCA Shanghai, Mr Law Chi Kwong, President of the Hong Kong Jade Association (HKJA), Mr Ho Koon Wan, Director of Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Creative Centre and Mr Billy Lau, President of HKJJA.
