In designing this ring, I drew inspiration from the rich history depicted on the stained glass windows of the magnificent yet romantic churches in Italy. During the medieval times, apart from churches and public developments such as town halls, only the very wealthy could afford stained glass windows as part of their architecture in their homes. As well, the most appropriate gemstone to be paired with the romance of this ring was to go in search of a wine-coloured gemstone – and no other type of gemstone exudes this exact shade of berry wine colour, except the Rhodolite Garnets.
For a piece of Italy on your finger, retailing at SGD2,980.
18k white gold featuring a 6.6carat Rhodolite Garnet surrounded by diamonds.
This pair of bright and cheerful earrings, stunning enough for that lunch date on a Sunday, retailing at SGD2,890. Fancy, yet not OTT, these earrings will definitely add that additional oomph to your dress. A staple pair of earrings for this summer.
18K white gold, intense blue sapphires, happy yellow citrines surrounded by pure white sapphires.
PS: did you notice that there are no diamonds used in this pair? In designing this pair, our vision was fun, cheery and bright earrings, yet at the same time, striking a balance between fine precious gems and a casual statement.
Would like to update that this pair of earrings has already been sold. Thank you for your enquiries and support.
We had a client who had over the many years, unknowingly amassed several gemstones and jewellery in a very nice, rich orange hue.
She came to us one day with a ring and 2 loose gemstones and wanted us to help create a whole matching set of jewellery.
This was our client’s ring from her mother that she wanted to redesign.
Our client brought her own loose gemstones that she wanted to complement the new design we were going to re-set for her. We were delighted to help her re-design an entirely new set of jewellery she could finally wear.
So we proceeded to start work on dimensions, design process, design customization and final design confirmation. Notice that the above 2 gemstones were not entirely the same shape. But that is definitely not a problem for us – after recutting and re-shaping the gemstones slightly, this was the final outcome:
A beautiful 3-piece jewellery set with a classic vintage appeal, set in 18k white gold with diamonds. Notice her original ring was in yellow gold – we also changed that to white gold during the re-working process.
In recent months, I’ve had 2 very common questions:
1. I’ve got some old jewellery handed down from my grandmother. I have no idea what to do with them. I like the designs but I also want to update the look so that I can actually wear them. Can you do anything about this?
2. I’ve bought some loose gems during my travels over the past years, but I have no idea what to do with them. Can you help?
Well, what do you know, we have the answers here for you!

In our next post, we’ll give you an example of how one of our clients already had existing jewellery that required a brand new look and another client who only wanted a simple update of her engagement ring. Stay tuned.
A client recently came to us, looking for a birthday gift for her 2 daughters, turning 16 and 21 this May. Her request was simple – “I’m after a pearl pendant. A sweet, young design – ideally the same design, but in different coloured pearls. But I do not want the classic silver pearls. I want a Tahitian pearl and a deep gold pearl. Can you find me a nice deep gold pearl? I’ve heard that nice deep gold colours are hard to find.” Sure we could!
A ribbon pendant – 18k white gold, diamonds and Tahitian pearl, and 18k gold in oxidised finish, black diamonds and Deep Gold Champagne pearl.
Every woman has a love affair with pearls. Woman of all ages can wear pearls. They are Mother Nature’s answer to pure, timeless elegance. Pearls strands can be worn in many ways. As a pearl choker, as seen on Angelina Jolie
or as a luxurious pearl rope, as seen on Katherine Heigl.
Pearls come in a variety of beautiful shades as well. Rose hues, silver, cream, light champagne gold to deep gold, and not forgetting, greyish tones of Tahitian pearls, including green overtones, and beautiful eggplant-coloured Tahitian pearls. As seen here on Michelle Obama and Hilary Swank.
We have recently sold a double-strand pearl choker, 16-inch length with diamond-accented fleur clasps. Just the most stunning and beautiful piece (see our previous post). The lustre of these South Sea Pearls is simply breath-taking. All 82 pearls were individually hand-picked and stranded by hand. These pearls had just the right amount of silver overtone and slight bluish-green undertone – as requested by our client.
Here, we take you from 2 pairs of earrings, ideal for day-wear, to a glammed-up evening look.
