The leading Hong Kong jeweller's latest high jewellery collection, Reflections of Siem, is inspired by the majestic history of the Khmer Empire.

Chow Tai Fook unveiled its fourth annual high jewellery collection titled “Reflections of Siem” yesterday at Ion Sky. Inspired by the ruins in Siem Reap, every piece in this collection is deeply resonant of the strength and elegance of Cambodia, harking back to its glorious days when it was once a Khmer Empire. 

The Chant

The Chant, an extravagant neck piece, is inspired by the towering trunks growing out of temple ruins. The 27.649-carat oval red tourmaline cabochon centre stone is set in an 18K yellow gold necklace comprising of chain tassels, dusted with rubies and yellow diamonds.
