Utilitarian chic has gained some much-needed sparkle with the launch of a collection of Swarovski-crystal-encrusted ornaments and key-rings from Lumineux. The pieces, which feature a built-in Octopus card function, can adorn handbags, key-chains and mobile phones. The ornaments operate in the same way as normal Octopus cards and value can be added at MTR stations, 7-Eleven and Circle K stores, or by charging the desired amount through registered credit cards. Each piece comes with HK$10 credit and, unlike regular Octopus cards, requires no initial deposit. There are nine ornaments in the collection. Try the deep red enamel and crystal Bear Bear (HK$699) or elegant multi-coloured-crystal Ocean Spark charm (left; HK$799). Available from Lumineux, shop 111, Gi Centre, 34 Granville Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, tel: 2367 8880.
