Wallace Chan and friends at Tefaf

The best pieces of jewelry at Tefaf New York: there is also a new ring by Wallace Chan.
Tefaf, the most important event dedicated to antiques, but not only, arrives in New York. Established in Maastricht in 1988, the fair has been so successful that it was also exported to New York, where it even two editions, in May and in October (22-26). Although the focus is centered on paintings, sculptures and antique furniture, there are prestigious exhibitors offering antique and contemporary jewelry. And among the great jewels to see (you can observe something this page), there are those of Wallace Chan, the first Chinese designer to be invited to this prestigious art fair. Chan is a master not only in the composition of the different elements, but also in the processing of stones, with innovative cuts and often patients incisions on the surface. The novelty is called the Ring of Night, which has at its center a large amethyst for over 116 carats. Although at first glance it seems a rather simple ring, it’s actually surprisingly built without griffes to hold the stone. It is the hand of the master. Next to this piece out of the ordinary, and it’s not the only Wallace Chan that will be in exhibition, Tefaf also houses other pieces of great value, as the earrings by Reza to the Camellia brooch by Van Cleef & Arpels.
