An 1883 English folklore recounts that the old item provided protection for the baby to come and for good luck.

In collaboration with Bridestory Singapore, we feature a pearl collection for that special day, for that special bride-to-be.
The modern day bride can be ethereal, rustic, romantic without being too OTT if the gown is accessorised with the right choice of jewellery and hair accessories, paired with a beautiful gown and the correct makeup.
Jewellery on your wedding day need not be boring and neither should it clash with your bridal gown and bridal look. When planned properly, it can enhance the bride’s features, and pearls can add that glow to your complexion.
Wearing pearls at night completes the look of elegance without being too garish. A simpler pearl pendant paired with cap-sleeved bridal gown helps even out the proportion of an otherwise empty neckline.

A ring that was customised as a wedding anniversary gift with 3 coloured diamonds to signify the couple’s 3 children.
A style that is unique, yet understated and wearable daily with somewhat of a cool factor and definitely not something off-the-shelf. The lady wanted a design that symbolised the pure, natural love for her family, husband and children, hence the organic-styled design of this ring. As with any family dynamics, there is always undulating up and downs symbolised by the uneven texture of this ring. But at the end of the day, everything comes full circle, symbolised by the circle of this ring.
What is special about this ring is that no 2 sides or faces about this ring is remotely the same.
We will be showcasing our latest collection of unheated Sapphires, Malaia Garnets, Spinels in a wide assortment of colours, including our new ready-to-wear collection.
27th October (Friday) – 30th October (Monday), drop by Marina Bay Sands, Booth B113 to view.

We’ve had a client come to us, looking to change his centre gemstone from its existing ruby cabochon to another suitable gemstone. It is in fact, often easier to change the design of the ring, keeping intact the feature gemstone. However, the original design of this ring made it simple enough to find a suitable replacement gemstone that was similar in shape and size so that they owner could enjoy a new look for less!
Below: BEFORE changing the centre gemstone
Below: The “After” shot.
The basic design of the ring had not changed. Our craftsmen did have to subtly amend the ring slightly to suit the new Cabochon. But what a world of difference it makes to the entire ring when the feature gemstone is a clear, beautiful piece as seen below.
Yes, the owner decided to ditch his Ruby Cabochon for a stunning Garnet Cab.
An incredibly eye-clean Garnet Cabochon makes this piece an instant eye-opener! Garnets make for great jewellery as they rank high on the MOHs scale of hardness. They are generally durable and garnets come in a variety of colours! With colour ranging from purple, red to bright fiery orange and intense green, what’s not to love about the garnet?
Our feature this month focuses on setting and design. Our client is truly someone special who chose to be unique and dared to be different. By proposing with a tension set engagement ring! Not only was the setting and design unique, the shape of the gem itself was special.
Below is a trillion shape Rhodolite Garnet tension set with 2 large side diamonds in 18K white gold. Rhodolite garnets typically exhibit a slight tinge of purple/violet. This particular rhodolite has no purple/violet, instead is a beautiful deep red colour. The 2 sides of gold work on either ends of the rhodolite seems to magically hold and suspend the garnet mid-air.
For someone looking for a contemporary, minimalist and unique setting, this engagement ring ticks all the checkboxes.
With so many choices of gemstones out there, why stick to just sapphires for an engagement ring?
Spinels have long been used in fine jewellery. With lustre and brilliance that is comparable and sometimes even rivals that of sapphires, it is not surprising that its popularity has been rising in recent years as people become more aware of this precious gem. Unlike sapphires, spinels are typically unheated as well.
Since ancient times, spinels have long been used on royalty crowns and jewels. And back when technology was not as advanced, people often mistook spinels for corundums (sapphires/rubies) because of its high lustre, being very similar to sapphires.
As far as hardness on the MOH scale, spinels do not fall far behind sapphires, which makes them just as suitable as engagement rings and rings that one would wear on a more regular occasion.
Set in 18K rose gold that beautifully complements the deep red of this spinel, this spinel engagement ring is definitely one of a kind.
Icy blue frost is the best way to describe colour typical of swiss blue topaz. And our client had wanted to gift this pair of earrings in time for christmas. What better colour represents christmas than that of swiss blue topaz?
Our client was after simple drop earrings and was not so keen to have the topaz overshadowed by too many diamonds. He was also more inclined towards a simple, fuss-free and modern style. Hence, we decided on the pyramid-styled studs at the top which nicely complements the tear-drop topaz on the bottom.
