And what could be more bling than a 22 karat gold business card?

Diamond giant puts on the bling

De Beers hosted a two-day celebration to mark the opening of its first Hong Kong flagship store earlier last month. In addition to a VIP dinner banquet at Grand Hyatt's Plateau on January 21, the firm also threw a cocktail reception in its new 2,200-sq-ft Landmark store the next day. To add to the bling, a 52-carat D-colour diamond was flown in for the event.

Sharp blades

This season, gentlemen of distinction -regardless of occupation - should suit themselves in superb tailoring. Fine fabrics, a perfect cut and extravagant accessories (think diamond watches, an antique lapel pin or dandy cane) say you mean business, without be boring. Just don't call them bling-bling.
