As its most prestigious line within the brand, no more than 36 Black Label pieces are made annually. One-of-a-kind, some take up to two years to create. Chao’s pieces are recognized for their sculptural qualities, recently being featured at Christie’s Hong Kong, art fairs, and museums.
This year’s Red Diamond Ribbon Ring boasts a cut-corner square fancy purplish-red diamond as the knot, complimented by triangular-cut white diamonds, all set in 18K white gold.
Also on view at Paris Couture is Cindy Chao’s White Label collection, including Dragonfly Brooches in emerald and conch pearl separately, and an intricate Yellow Diamond Leaves Ring with three heart-shaped fancy intense yellow diamonds framed by white diamonds set in 18k white gold.
