Several of the UK’s brightest jewellery designers were launched into the Chinese jewellery market last week at a glittering event at Beijing’s smartest department store, Shin Kong Place. The event, organised by British Jewellery & Giftware International (BJGI)and designer Fei Liu, and supported by UK Trade & Investment and the British Jewellers’ Association, was launched with a VIP reception on Tuesday 8th November, starring famous Chinese film actress Liu Shi Shi and a catwalk show featuring jewellery from the UK designers.

The reception launched a four day in-store showcase, displaying products from UK jewellery designers and producers Dorit Jewellery, Leyla Abdollahi, Mahtab Hanna, Roland Green, Sarah Ho, Tomasz Donocik, and William Cheshire, and silversmith Christopher Perry, supported by the Birmingham Assay Office. BJGI manager Mike Josypenko explained: “This event provides an ideal platform to showcase the work of some of the UK’s finest emerging talent, and a launching pad into one of the world’s fastest growing consumer markets. We are grateful for the tireless and inspirational assistance of Birmingham designer Fei Liu, without whose help this event would have been impossible.”
