Photographer and designer Dickson Yewn has created four jewellery lines inspired by eastern philosophy, Chinese dynasties and mysticism. Among the pieces is a bracelet that features the 3,000-year-old Chinese lattice pattern - familiar from antique wooden window screens - delicately picked out in 18-karat white gold and diamonds and linked to strings of ruby beads. An unusual square ring (left) features tongue-and-groove jointing, square-cut diamonds and semi-precious stones on chains. 'The globalisation of western jewellery has slowly shrouded the originality of the true source of its inspiration,' Yewn says of his decision to use Taoism and even the I-Ching as inspiration for the Circle of Life, Square of Earth, Lattice and Bodhi Tree collections. The jewellery costs from $5,000 to $200,000 and is available at his two stores in Hong Kong: 9 On Lan Street, Central, tel: 2868 3890; and The Peninsula, Tsim Sha Tsui, tel: 3173 8339.
