Anabela Chan is the first fine jewelry brand in the world to champion laboratory-grown and created gemstones with high jewelry design, artisanal craftsmanship, and a focus on ethical and sustainable innovations.
Every story begins by hand-carving the designs in wax before casting in parts, then assembling, polishing, and engraving in meticulous detail. Every stone is carefully selected for its brilliance and color; then cut, faceted, polished, and set painstakingly by hand. Every jewel is hand-crafted individually by skilled artisans, combining her love affair with gemstones and an obsession with detail and perfection, to create magical treasures of infinite colors and sparkle that are loved, worn, and collected alike.
HOW TO WEAR IT
These days a bow represents pure uncaged creativity, a confident willingness to be different, and an uncompromising embrace of style in daily life in society. The message given by these earrings is far more than we think.
Anabela’s work indeed feels like it can hold emotions and memories: her pieces have a timeless quality. Her eclectic skillset has been evident since launching her jewelry label back in 2013. She comes from three generations of cinematographers, having grown up in London and Paris, and has a background in architecture, fashion, print, and embroidery. This shows through in her designs, which are visually ingenious, reminiscent of vibrant markets with eye-catching contrasting colors. Her designs meld vulnerability and strength, delicate settings unashamedly embedded with bright gemstones.
“Travelling to the exotic and the Orient is one of my greatest passions,” says Anabela. “Through my travels, I collect unusual gems and treasures from local markets, nature, and the unusual people I meet. I then use my findings to create limited editions of couture jewelry that are almost like souvenirs of my journeys. Each piece is one-of-a-kind; a story-telling treasure that can be worn or displayed alike.”
