Wallace Chan returns to the Tefaf





Wallace Chan returns to Maastricht’s Tefaf with some pieces out of the ordinary ♦ ︎
At the Tefaf in Maastricht (March 10th-18th, 2018) there are several names of jewelery designer in the catalog. And not just vintage jewelry by great Maison, like Cartier or Van Cleef & Arpels, but also from contemporary designers. In addition to Hemmerle, for example, the master Wallace Chan also returns to the great Dutch art fair, antiques and design.

Wallace Chan is a legend in the world of jewelry and more. Born in a poor family in Fuzhou in 1956 and moved to Hong Kong at the age of five. After a long apprenticeship, in 1987, he devised a method for sculpting figures inside a stone. The technique uses carvings as in cameos to create an image that is then reflected within the gem and creates a three-dimensional effect. As in the jadeite in the shape of a horse’s head, with white diamonds, yellow pink and brown, crystal, tsavorite garnet, on titanium: a piece not to be missed and which you see photographed on this page.
At Tefaf, in any case there are other pieces of unusual jewelry, such as the necklace with citrine signed Andrew Grima, or the ring with the Cassiopea diamond of 4 carats, part of the collection of Amy Burton. Federico Graglia
