Trained in gem-setting through the traditional “master and apprentice” structure, Jimmy Hui has been in the industry for over thirty years. In addition to diamond mounting, master Hui is adept with jadeite and other precious stones.
Master Hui began learning gem-setting at the age of sixteen. After three years of apprenticeship and with the encouragement of his master, he dedicated himself to specialise in stone settings. He worked at different jewellery companies in Hong Kong and Japan, where he perfected his diamond setting techniques. Later, he was invited by an Indonesian jewellery company to teach diamond setting techniques.
Upon returning to Hong Kong, Master Hui opened his workshop. With his experience and perseverance, he always strives for perfection in each piece of jewellery. He is currently a craftsman-in-residence at Dawn Jewellery, responsible for custom jewellery and gem-setting.
