An 1883 English folklore recounts that the old item provided protection for the baby to come and for good luck.
Have you recently inherited some of your mother’s or grandparents’ older jewellery? Would you like to wear it as a part of your “something old, something new”? A piece of jewellery that you could both on your wedding day and even after your wedding? Something you could wear daily or even on special occasions?
Older styles of jewellery, while it has its appeal, may not be as easy to wear with apparel of modern, contemporary styles.

It is a way of keeping a part of you that you cherish, in a style that is relevant to you. Keep

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 stellar pair of Tahitian pearls and diamond cluster ear-drops. At 13mm diameter, this pair of Tahitian pearls are of AAA, fine quality with no blemish and very good reflective lustre. Specially sourced on a commissioned basis, this pair of perfectly round Tahitian pearls are of superb quality.
Factors that affect price of pearls:
- Roundness: Pearls are classified according to perfectly round, semi-round, oval, button, baroque, cercled (yes, you read that right. There is no spelling error – it is not circled).
- Shine/Lustre: Excellent mirror-like lustre, very good lustre, good lustre, average lustre and weak lustre.
- Surface: No imperfection/blemish, minimal imperfections, imperfections and important imperfections
Size also plays a big role in price point. Assuming all other assessing factors of quality being the same, the larger the pearl, the more expensive. For example, a 15mm pearl that is perfect round with very good lustre and no blemish would command a much higher price than a 15mm pearl that is semi-round, average lustre and has imperfections.
The pair of Tahitian pearl ear drops were commissioned to complement our client’s existing Tahitian baroque pearl necklace and we must say it is stunning.
The design of the pearl earrings were conceptualised from the natural environment of the ocean where oysters and corals are a part of the natural landscape.
At first glance, it seems the diamonds have been randomly clustered into a somewhat irregular shape. However, on closer look, one would realise there is actually symmetry to be found in the design and the placement of the diamonds. It makes for a very natural piece of art one would wear on herself.
A beautiful dainty Sapphire ring: Featuring 3 petite diamonds on each side of the Sapphire, tapering outwards to the ring shank, this is a romantic design that will match any wedding dress.
When it comes to customised pieces, exact and ideal dimensions and sizing is key in the pursuit of perfection – not for everybody or anyone else, but for the wearer.
How broad should the shank be? How large should each diamond be? Relative to the Centre Sapphire? How does the overall ring sit relative to the owner’s finger?
Design is not simply about style and looks but pulling in together aesthetics, functionality, purpose and dimensions. That is the soul and beauty of customised works of art.
She was drawn to the vivid blue of the Sapphire. Intensely saturated, yet not at all opaque and overly dark. Which is difficult to find in natural Sapphires.
A dainty sapphire engagement ring that sets this piece apart from the rest. It looks deceivingly simple yet suits its owner to a T.

Garnets have good hardness and durability and come in various colours. The gemstone & jewellery industry dedicates a special mention to the Mandarin Spessatite, which ranges from a orange to yellow-orange to deep reddish-orange or a deep orange-red colour. And within this special class of garnets called the Mandarin Spessatites, there is a special locale that produces that signature Tangerine Orange colour. These are the ones from Namibia. In a class of its own.
Namibia produces Spessartites that come in a bright, fiery orange colour. Pure tangerine orange. Not too much yellow, not too much red. Just pure orange, like Tangerines.
It is the Manganese compound that gives the gemstone that bright orange colour. It is best to view Mandarin Spessartites in daylight, as viewing them in yellow light or store light might result in the Spessartite looking more warm in tone than it actually is, making it seem more “orange-y” than it really is.
Below is a stunning, customised set of Mandarin Spessartite jewellery.
What Mandarin Spessatites are famous for is their high lustre, brilliance and best of all, they are normally unheated and untreated. While Mandarin Spessatites do come with some natural inclusions visible to the eye, it is possible to source those that are relatively eye-clean.
2016 is definitely a year for the Spinels as it makes its mark to be added to the list of birthstones. Newly minted as the August birthstone by the Jewelers of America and American Gem Trade Association (AGTA), Spinels have always and will continue to capture the hearts of many. With such a variety of colours available and most Spinels generally being rather eye-clean, having good lustre and ranking 8 on the MOHs scale, they make for fantastic jewellery. Just for reference, Sapphires rank 9 and diamonds rank 10 on the MOHs scale.
We love working with Spinels and featured below is a pink Spinel engagement ring that one can hardly say no to.
Set in beautiful champagne pink gold, this ring is definitely a charmer. Unique choice of gold colour which makes it special as a promise ring. More beautiful than a Pink Sapphire, this bespoke spinel engagement ring is truly magical in its own right. Most spinels are unheat, which makes them all the more to love!
