Wallace Chan

Macao-based Wallace Chan, whose unconventional designs were unveiled in the United States for the first time in fall 2010, has forged new ways of setting large gemstones atop other stones, creating dramatic layers of shapes and colors without the traditional prong or claw setting. The results are striking, voluminous pieces that portray a fluidity and artistic sensibility, yet remain feminine and wearable. Among his signature concepts is setting large diamonds on colorful opals, white jade, or white agate with the absence of metal. He seeks unusual materials to incorporate into his artistic designs, such as 600-year-old porcelain with inlaid painting or a tiger tooth carved with totems fit to diamond-inlaid titanium.
