Néih hó from Hong Kong, where I’ve been attending the 32nd annual Hong Kong International Jewellery Show, sponsored by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council. I’ll be sharing full coverage of the show next week, including profiles of exhibitors and insights into the Asian market. But first, as a preview, here are five Instagram snaps from the show.

Brooding! The view of the foggy harbor from the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, home of the HKTDC Hong Kong International Jewellery Show.
South Sea pearl mermaid brooch by Hong Kong-based Po Kwong Jewellery; I loved its sculptural use of the pearls.
This piece by Hong Kong designer EDEN was one of my favorites of the snake rings I spotted (and there were a bunch!). The coral ball in the snake’s mouth moves around, a detail perfect for a fidgeter.
Hong Kong design house Folklore HK is creating really gorgeous work inspired by—and handcrafted by—traditional artisan techniques. This ring uses thewa, the Indian art of silver foil interwoven over molten glass. I will have more to share about this very cool company, and the women who run it, next week.
Okay, so maybe it is not the most practical ring for everyday wear, but this Silver Victoria Harbour View ring by Hong Kong Oapes makes for a really special souvenir that goes way beyond a fridge magnet.
