“The Way of the Na­tu­re” is the brand’s phi­lo­so­phi­cal stan­ce, hi­ghlighting beau­ty, har­mo­ny, and ra­vi­shing de­si­gns. A long lost Chi­ne­se he­ri­ta­ge li­ves again in a new ce­le­stial col­lec­tion.

YEWN is one of the ve­ry few Chi­ne­se con­tem­po­ra­ry fi­ne jewel­ry brands at the fo­re­front of lu­xu­ry re­tail. Sin­ce the end of the Chi­ne­se Mo­nar­chy in 1911, Chi­ne­se jewel­ry de­si­gn had been a ra­re sight not on­ly in the re­st of the world, but al­so wi­thin Chi­na itself. Un­for­tu­na­te­ly, what was lost in ti­me was not ju­st tra­di­tio­nal Chi­ne­se de­si­gn, but al­so the im­por­tant em­pha­sis on har­mo­ny wi­th na­tu­re that had for­med the ba­sis of Chi­ne­se way of li­fe and the bac­k­bo­ne of the tra­di­tio­nal Chi­ne­se crea­ti­ve pro­cess. Ar­ti­st and foun­der Dick­son Yewn’s mis­sion is to re­vi­ve Chi­na’s lost he­ri­ta­ge by crea­ting con­tem­po­ra­ry Chi­ne­se fi­ne jewel­ry that nei­ther the pa­st nor the pre­sent ge­ne­ra­tions ha­ve ever wit­nes­sed, brin­ging back not on­ly the uni­que ae­sthe­tics of Chi­ne­se cul­tu­re, but al­so the an­cient Chi­ne­se li­te­ra­ti class’s re­spect for, and ap­pre­cia­tion of, the na­tu­ral world. For the Pro­ta­go­ni­st ex­hi­bi­tion, Yewn taps in­to mil­len­nia-old tra­di­tions that pay ho­ma­ge to “the way of na­tu­re” ap­proa­ch in fi­ne jewel­ry ma­king. The Th­ree Folds Au­spi­ciou­sness ban­gle wi­th dia­monds set in 18K whi­te gold and re­clai­med Cu­ma­ru wood re­pre­sen­ts the de­si­gner’s de­di­ca­tion to col­lec­ting and using re­clai­med, aged wood to crea­te a fre­sh new work. The Day­li­ly Ink Pain­ting in­spi­red by an­cient li­te­ra­ti pain­ter, BaDaS­haRen – a dia­mond ring set in 18K whi­te gold, blends an­cient de­si­gns wi­th Yewn’s ico­nic squa­re­sha­ped, ivo­ry-co­lo­red ce­ra­mic. This bold yet de­li­ca­te pie­ce, whi­le pay­ing tri­bu­te to the an­cient Chi­ne­se tra­di­tion of ce­ra­mic (one of the mo­st im­por­tant li­fe­sty­le ma­te­rials be­si­des wood), is an al­ter­na­ti­ve to the ele­phant ivo­ry used in lu­xu­ry Chi­ne­se de­si­gn. The­se two pie­ces hi­ghlight Yewn’s con­ti­nued de­di­ca­tion to crea­ting en­vi­ron­men­tal­ly and so­cial­ly re­spon­si­ble art jewel­ry, as well as brin­ging to the We­st so­me yet un­seen beau­ti­ful ae­sthe­tic
