Given fresh relevance by the upcoming Olympic Games, chinoiserie-inspired items are all the rage - and Shanghai Tang is paying attention. For spring, the brand has released the sterling-silver Cloud

and Jade Flower collections. From the Cloud collection come chunky resin and silver bangles (above; HK$1,480 each) in colours such as jade green, white and black. A pair of delicate jade and silver floral chandelier earrings (below left; HK$1,480) or a bracelet (below right; HK$1,880) from the Jade Flower collection would make the perfect gift for the woman who has everything except a gold medal. The collections are available at Shanghai Tang, Pedder Building, Pedder Street, Central, tel: 2525 7333.
