Carnet by Michelle Ong at Masterpiece London

Insider tip: don't miss Carnet jewels created by Michelle Ong, exhibiting at Masterpiece London fair this week with jewellery house Symbolic & Chase.


Masterpiece London, the dazzling and eclectic selling exhibition of the finest objects that the worlds of art, design and antiques have to offer, opens its doors next week. Among those exhibitors that I will be sure to visit is Symbolic & Chase, the Bond Street purveyor of 'objets d'art' and fine jewels, both contemporary and vintage. I will be looking out for Carnet by Michelle Ong of Hong Kong.

Of supreme delicacy and goosebump-inducing beauty, Carnet is the go-to house for connoisseurs who appreciate the perfection of sublime jewels. Cobweb light, serenely elegant and breathtakingly precious, Carnet is one jeweller you must not miss on your visit to Masterpiece. 

To understand the high esteem in which Carnet and Michelle Ong are held, consider that Joel Arthur Rosenthal, or JAR, the enigmatic jeweller whose work is so sought after that he selects his clients, is a great admirer. JAR says of her work: "Madame Ong's jewels are mouthwatering. There are Chinese clouds utterly different from ours, in scrolls of diamonds; unexpected blackness with reds and greens making ferocious, billowing dragons we will remember; diamonds again trickling about a neck and slipping down wrists; geometry, monsters, flora, colour, a free hand making things we have never seen and will keep forever."

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos with over 5 million views and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform and help us grow our business to the next stage.
