Carnet by Michelle Ong

    Hong Kong designer Michelle Ong is known for seamlessly fusing Eastern and Western cultures in a distinctive, identifiable look. Her graceful style stems from years of training as a ballroom dancer. Though these days there is little time for dance as she travels between her homes in Hong Kong and London and meticulously supervises the production of her one-of-a-kind designs, which can take up to one year to create. Signature Style: Feminine and stylish as illustrated in lacey, open-work diamond cuffs appointed with rose-cut diamonds and diamond jewelry with an absence of visible metal, which gives stones the illusion of floating against the skin.
