With a Mother of Pearl universe surrounding a twinkling gemstone, the Galaxy Ring is a portal into our innermost dreams. It’s a daily reminder that you’re a part of something so much bigger but that you also hold the wonder of the universe in your hands. What better choice could there be for the Oscars, an accolade that marks the pinnacle of dreams coming true?


This year, Helene had the distinct privilege of our piece being worn by Janet Yang, President of the Motion Picture Academy of Arts and Sciences, on the Oscar red carpet. Yang’s impressive career spans decades and continents, bridging the Asian and American film markets with a passion for storytelling. As a producer, she has been behind influential films like The Joy Luck Club and Shanghai Calling, championing diverse voices and narratives in Hollywood.




Janet Yang’s contributions to the film industry are monumental. She has been a trailblazer, not only as a producer but also as an advocate for greater representation and inclusion within the cinematic arts. Her leadership at the Academy underscores her dedication to nurturing the next generation of filmmakers and ensuring that diverse stories are told on the global stage. Her passion for film is matched by her commitment to sustainable and ethical practices, making her an inspiring figure who connects deeply with Helene’s ethos.

 

Helene pieces were handpicked by Yang and worn throughout the awards season because she resonated with our story. The Galaxy Ring from our Galaxy Collection was chosen for Oscar night and the 14th Governors Awards, where Yang opened the show. Yang also wore Helene Quan for the Oscars Nominees Luncheon, opting for the Helene Quan Rainbow Heart Chandelier Earrings which reflected the multi-coloured details of her Kaftan Studio dress. Beyond awards season, Yang has donned our designs at the 12th annual LACMA Art+Film Gala, selecting our Spring in Rome Earrings with blue sapphires.  For every event, Yang was dressed head-to-toe by conscious brands, proving that luxury can be sustainable.
