Winner of multiple local and regional design awards, Playback Concept founder Chan Po Fung started his creative career in 2012, pivoting the integration of sustainable metal craftsmanship and lifestyle. His collections are often expressed in the art form of material transformation and mechanism creations showcased in contemporary jewellery exhibitions. The jewellery collections seamlessly blend wood and jade elements into silver and gold, adorning the distinctive designs that can hardly be found in the market. Fueling his passion for metal arts to a wider society, Chan also regularly hosts jewellery workshops, targeting loving couples to forge their very own rings and cufflinks. Spare some time and effort with your significant other to attend the workshops and create the most meaningful gifts or pick something special from their latest collections.

Diligently handcrafted with 925 sterling silver, 18K rose or yellow gold, each collection carries a distinct significance with a unified focus in celebrating the beauty of ancient culture and wisdom with a modern twist. Their signature Chakra collection represents each Chakra—the energy of your actions, thoughts and emotions that is essential to your growth and well-being. Flora curated this collection to anchor the brand mission that drives positive changes, desires and to be the best version of yourself. As a socially conscious business, they only work with ethical, family-run jewellers promising quality, fair and sustainable production.
Storia Jewellery is the love child of Storia Cheryl, who designs her pieces as a series of short stories in life journeys that one can hold in their mind and physically. Inspired by nature, city and emotion, she intends to set a reminder for us to spare a moment for the tiniest things in life and learn to appreciate them. Similar to the brand's logo which showcases a spinning windmill and a Scribble letter “S” for Storia forming an infinite symbol, the collections collaboratively convey the message of the infinite possibilities in life and its constant astonishment. Continuing using the finest gemstones and 18K gold in her creations, Storia will be relocating to the United Kingdom later this year for her continued venture.
