Beyond the bling and baubles of Jul B. Dizon’s fine jewelry line is Lucille Dizon, an exceedingly talented designer with a striking sense of style.

Occupation
Jewelry designer

Regular Activities
“I paint every Saturday at my art class, then usually spend my Sunday with the family at our farm. On weekdays, I usually spend my mornings at the factory checking job orders of my clients. I see to it that every step of the buying and commissioning process is a joy.”

Style Staples
Timeless classics and fashion statements. “Classic or understated doesn’t have to mean a boring shirt. It can be oversized, boxy, or can have peek-a-boo detail. I love the combination of a classic and stylish piece as long as it’s not exaggeratingly trendy.”

Favorite Brands
Balenciaga, Alexander Wang, Acne, COS, and Carven.

Favorite Stores
On Pedder, Lane Crawford, Rustan’s, and the Ramp.

Fashion Philosophy
“Style is more about self-expression which is unique to each person, an extension of oneself.”

Style Icon
“Tina Chow is just one of a kind. She is remembered not only as a style icon but also as a groundbreaking jewelry designer. Her minimal chicness is inimitable and effortless.”

First Big Splurge
An antique pendant with rose-cut diamonds.

Signature Accessories
“Rings that I wear all together whether they’re in white gold or in rose gold. I love mixing metals. Also, my collection of sunglasses and eyeglasses.”

What I Value Most
“The drawings and letters I’ve amassed through the years from my three children and a happy picture of my father and me days before he passed away. These are priceless. I can’t live without my family. They mean absolutely everything.”
