Siglo - Cohiba-inspired horizontal checker humidor

This handcrafted humidor (HK$6,000) is finished in mango yellow and adorned with a black and white checkered rim, echoing cigar brand Cohiba's signature packaging. More than 10 layers of lacquer are applied, before it is carefully polished to a glossy finish. It can be easily converted to a jewellery and watch box by fitting it with a suede-wrapped jewellery tray (HK$550), which has watch pillows and ring rolls for easy storage.

Lalique - Perles Jewellery Box

The French glassmaker chose Macassar wood from Indonesia and carbon fibre to create this jewellery box (HK$38,700). Each piece takes 28 days to make. It is coated with 14 layers of lacquer for a durable and waterproof finish, and hand polished for extra shine. A minimalistic crystal inlay completes the understated design.

Cartier - watch and cufflinks box

The surface of this black lacquered watch and cufflinks box is crafted from a jade plate engraved with a Chinese landscape and figures enjoying their leisure time at night. It is embellished with 1,000 diamonds of 7.6 carats, more than 50 coral beads, and a moonstone, used to symbolise the full moon. A diamond encrusted dragon in pink gold glares from the bottom of the box. It has an ebony finish and a double layer of jewellery trays. Inquiries: 8105 5008
