Wallace Chan will be the first Asian jeweler to display his work at the Paris Biennale des Antiquares this coming September 2012. He's not new to the industry, though, having won the Hong-Kong Jewelry Design Grand Award for his 1987 invention, the Wallace Cut. This is basically an intaglio cut on the reverse side of a faceted stone which is carefully calculated to appear "complete" only when seen through the facets.
In the early part of this century he caught the Titanium trend(see previous), and presented a collection in 2007 as Baselworld
He's recently pre-presented several of pieces to the press:
|A Butterfly broach in titanium set with precious and semiprecious stones. The wings are verigated rock-crystal|
