Michelle Ong ranks as one of Hong Kong’s greatest jewellery talents, with her designs sought out by connoisseurs and collectors from around the world.
Ong has an eye for intricate detail, but nevertheless she ensures all her designs are comfortable to wear and have a lovely feminine sensibility. She approaches jewellery as an art form with no set limits; she will create whatever inspires her, but mostly Ong is drawn to the elegance and beauty of natural forms. Flowers and fruits are particular favourites, touched with playful fantasy, and her passion for food and the way it is presented similarly feeds her creative spirit.
The acclaimed American jeweller, Joel A Rosenthal (JAR) says of her work,”… all of her jewels are like great pleasures - devoured in one bite of the eye to remain unforgettable.”
Carnet is so dark and discreet that you might almost overlook it, but that would be to miss some of the most exquisite jewellery to be created in Hong Kong.
Only Carnet timepieces are sold at the store.
Michelle Ong crafts all her jewellery in-house and has been creating beautiful, one-of-a-kind jewels for Carnet for two decades. She is renowned for her combination of precious stones, craftsmanship and strong aesthetic.
