For a woman, jewellery can mean many things; it can be a form of self-expression as we choose what to wear on our body, it can be given as a sentimental gift from our loved ones or just a gift from ourselves, it’s often a testament of feminine beauty and for many, a jewellery collection is a collection of memories. Jewellery is an art form for both its creators and their consumers, especially with bespoke pieces. Thus, we have curated a list of the best luxurious jewellery in Singapore for all of you jewellery-lovers out there.

Types of jewellery available in Singapore:

Pre-made

These are the ones you see flashed in stores all over our island; in our malls, in neighbourhood areas, in markets and even at bus interchanges. These pieces are also often worn by many Singaporean women. With premade pieces, consumers are often limited by the choices the jewellery designers have created. This does not necessarily mean they’re any less beautiful! With ready-made pieces, consumers are often enamoured by the creator’s designs and end up being these products to wear them or keep them in their own collection.

Premade pieces are often cheaper than bespoke pieces as they are often produced in multiples. However, it can be extremely pricey especially If it’s from renowned jewellers with a long history and large shares in the diamond trade.

Bespoke or Custom

From the title, I think you can guess what bespoke jewellery is. If you have a design in mind or if you want something very sentimental, custom made pieces are the way to go. They’re often very pricey as it requires a specific type of craftmanship and the fluctuating prices of materials.

In this list, we cover some of Singapore’s finest luxurious jewellery.

2. Gen.K Jewelry

Looking through the Genevie and Kayde’s (combine their names and you have Gen.K!) designs, I find it true to their slogan in wanting to define modern jewellery. Many would think jade as old-fashioned, ‘oriental’ and only for our mothers. However, jade is more than just a material, it is a history of culture and extremely gorgeous in its own right as it turns darker green overtime. Its beauty and appeal have withstood the test of time and I am sure it will last even longer.

At Gen.K, they aim to revolutionise, modernise and update the stereotype of jade by giving it a modern and trendy appeal for such a historic and classic jewel. Jade enthusiasts would also know the different grades of jade and at Gen.K, they promise only the best (Type A Burmese jade) and other semi-precious gemstones; each material is expertly handpicked and their craftmanship makes every jewellery piece worth every penny. At Gen.K, they offer a wide range of premade pieces that are sure to dazzle.

A customer of Azen Jewellery prefers simple and minimalist designs. Don’t be fooled by the plain design; sometimes less is more. The rings are thin but it’s perfect to make our fingers look longer, slenderer and undoubtedly more elegant.
