TSL Estrella x Willard Wigan "The Eighth Wonder of the World" Micro-sculpture First-in-Asia Exhibition
Langham Place, Mong Kok from 8 April to 10 April Debut of The World's Most Precious Diamond Micro-sculpture Art Piece "The Starry Lovers"

TSL today unveiled its highlight event of the year – TSL Estrella x Willard Wigan "The Eighth Wonder of the World" Micro-sculpture First-in-Asia Exhibition– at Langham Place, Mong Kok. The world-renowned micro-sculpture artist Mr. Willard Wigan was in Hong Kong to officiate at the Opening Ceremony at Langham Place, together with Mrs. Annie Yau Tse, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TSL, Mr. Lambert Chan, Chief Operating Officer of TSL, and celebrity Ms. Annie Liu to unveil the world's most precious diamond micro-sculpture "The Starry Lovers".

The Exhibition will open for the public from 8 April to 10 April with free admission, allowing the people of Hong Kong to witness the world-class micro-sculptures. Moreover, the Exhibition showcases invaluable Estrella diamond jewellery masterpieces and trendy and innovative Estrella diamond crossover pieces. Apart from the wondrous exhibits, visitors can feel and experience the unique and astonishing beauty of TSL's Estrella Diamond via advanced and interactive technologies at the exhibition.

At the Opening Ceremony, Mrs. Tse said, "We're very pleased to have brought 'The Eighth Wonder of the World' micro-sculpture art pieces to Hong Kong and Asia for the first time. TSL Jewellery's exquisite craftsmanship is very much in sync with the astonishing micro-sculpture skills of Willard. We hope the community will have the opportunity to appreciate the superb quality of both art forms via this Exhibition, especially through this world's most precious diamond micro-sculpture art."

The world-renowned micro-sculpture artist Mr. Wigan remarked, "I'm very delighted to collaborate with TSL Jewellery, which allows me to hold my first exhibition in Asia, taking my artistic career to the next level. I was amazed by TSL's unique 100-facet Estrella diamond which features a "Nine Hearts & One Blossom" pattern, and was inspired to make something that was as detailed but 'just a little bit smaller', which is 'The Starry Lovers' as you can see today."

The World's Most Precious Micro-sculpture Art Piece – "The Starry Lovers"
To commemorate the collaboration with TSL, Willard specially made a precious micro-sculpture art piece, "The Starry Lovers", for its world debut in Hong Kong. The art piece perfectly features a man giving his loved one his heart to cement their eternal love for each other. Not only has the artist created his art to sit on an Estrella Diamond, he has gone even further to adorn the lady with an Estrella grand piece necklace and bracelet. And if you were able to get even closer with a more powerful microscope you would see the lady even has painted fingernails.
