Hong Kong-based jeweller Corina Larpin is the founder of Stefere, in the spotlight recently for collaborating with designer Thom Browne on the 44-carat ruby nipple covers worn by Cardi B at this year’s Met Gala. Corina is also a newly-appointed committee member for Hong Kong’s Women of Hope charity, advocating change for social justice. Here, she shares what she loves most about the city.

Most memorable Hong Kong moment.

Everyday, I have memorable moments here in Hong Kong, but last year when I won the Women of Hope award for Entrepreneur of the Year was one of the most memorable for me.  

Favourite restaurants.

There are many. I like Zuma a lot, and Cipriani, and my favourite spot for lunch is Sevva, for the view and the food.

Unmissable markets.

I go to the Ladies Market in Kowloon and Stanley Market a lot when I want to get inspiration from people, and see what’s happening in day-to-day life.

Where to stay.

Repulse Bay – I live there and I love it. I feel like I’m on holiday every moment of the day. I walk on the beach, and stop to have a drink or for lunch. 

Best place for a drink.

I would say Sevva – when the weather is nice, the atmosphere is very cool.

Great spot for shopping.

Of course, Lane Crawford and Joyce.

Most mindblowing view.

From my home in Repulse Bay. Or from The Peninsula hotel where I lived for 7 years on the 23rd floor – the view at night time is amazing.

The city’s best-kept secret.

I haven’t found it yet. But we have a boat and I love discovering the island’s coastline.
