Among these exhibits, with a combined value of approximately 560 million yuan, was one of Wallace Chan's best-known pieces – the "Stilled Life" Cicada Brooch and Sculpture.
The brooch & sculpture, crafted from imperial jadeite, rubies and colored diamonds, will be presented on Chinese mainland for the first time at the 5th CIIE, and will be the exhibit with the highest declared value in the history of the expo.
This year will be the first time Wallace Chan participates in the CIIE, bringing over a hundred rare pieces of jewelry artwork, which will be on display in the special section for fashion clothing and accessories in the consumer goods exhibition hall.
