About Shenzhen MOVER Jewellery Co Ltd:
We like their creativity, originality and integration of hobby craft with jewellery. It takes a lot of imagination and persistency, which our industry should encourage and foster.
To define why they are “different” is an understatement. “Mover Culture” is the first global innovative enterprise dedicated to pan-entertainment and fashion-derived jewellery, they give fans something more lasting – more precious; simply put, the jewellery products it manufactures are inspired by existing characters, stories and concepts (whether in print, film or other media) that already have their respective following.
Mover Culture utilises existing IP to create jewellery that tells stories. In this time and age, there is no denying that jewellery is no longer only an accessory but an extension of the stories its owners’ value.
About Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group Ltd:
With Chow Tai Fook’s extensive retail network and buying power, it is hard to believe that they would invest USD 3.8 million in automated diamond polishing machineries in their Shunde facilities instead of outsourcing it to third parties. CTF is actually one of the very few in the industry, and the only Chinese jewellery company, that possesses three sightholders’ qualifications from De Beers, Rio Tinto Group and Alrosa; hence it is strategically important to keep the polishing and cutting of diamond in-house and in China.
Upon full installation, over 80% of diamonds can be polished by automation. This is a way to combat rising labour cost and diminishing interest of young people entering the polishing and cutting sector.
The overall operational efficiency, productivity and better-quality control would enable CTF to response quickly to evolving market dynamics and customer demand, and further solidify their leading position.

About YANG Lian Guang:
About Zulu GHEVRIYA:
A game changer in the jewellery business and a lover of luxury, Zulu Ghevriya’s mind is as multi-facetted as a prism of colours – a fitting trait for the man who leads Hong Kong’s Prism Group to the fore.
In just 20 years, the Prism Group has grown from being a manufacturer that delves in the cutting, processing and polishing of loose diamonds, to a retail and design powerhouse that has made waves in the fashion scene. It currently enjoys a major presence in key global cities, such as Mumbai, Bangkok, Dubai and New York. It is also regarded as a reputable retail brand by a top TV network in the US and a trailblazer in Asia and Europe’s jewellery sector.
With such an expansive network and impressive business portfolio to his name, it is almost hard to imagine that the managing director of this burgeoning empire has not even hit 40. What Ghevriya lacks in age, he makes up for in experience and his imagination.
What started out as a supply and manufacturing business has now become the realisation of Ghevriya’s dreams of being a respected purveyor of luxury. On top of working with diamond miners Rio Tinto and De Beers, the Prism Group also recently launched a new retail brand called Vedantti – a brand that caters to new millennial and young adults.
