“Yen’s work is feminine yet striking and the new collection is a wonderful example of how Yen’s molecule theme continues to be the inspiration behind her new designs. Yen has successfully managed to maintain her signature while taking it to another level." Jewellery Specialist for the BBC Antique Road Show & Sotheby's Joanna Hardy
Yen Duong expresses her passion for art and design through jewellery. By focusing on elegant and considered designs her work addresses complexities that go beyond the purely aesthetic. The physical and visual fluidity in her designs encapsulate a rare intriguing quality and her work is imbued with an unique attraction.
20 years on Yen Jewellery is still sold directly to her loyal customers from her central London studio in Bloomsbury. Prestigious exhibitions and galleries include Sotheby’s, The Goldsmiths’ Company and The Crafts Council, having also worked with Liberty of London, Selfridges and Harvey Nichols.
Yen is fascinated by the construction of jewellery and how this influences the feel of a piece, by focusing on the ways in which the structural and connective complexities relate. The exciting challenge is to design jewellery that makes precious metal feel soft and dynamic.
Intricacy and precision are integral to the quality that is experienced by her loyal clients. Wearing a piece of Yen Jewellery becomes a journey of interpretation and enjoyment, which feels different each and every time.
Subtle nuances diffuse and differentiate the ranges, designed to appeal to various tastes and for all occasions.
Yen Jewellery, established in 1996, still retains an uncompromising passion for thought-provoking design. Experimentation and re-creation enable the collections to remain fresh and contemporary.
Proud of her Vietnamese heritage and complemented by an early childhood spent in Wales, Yen takes delight from a diverse upbringing. Upon graduation from Sir John Cass in 1995, innovation drove her creative direction.
