Did you know that there has been a steady increase in fine jewellery labels offering bespoke services? Here, we give you five Singapore-based jewellery brands that offer one-of-a-kind jewellery. With style ranging from elegant and refined to delicate and minimal, you’ll definitely fall in love with them.
1. For the aesthete: Madly
For this mother of dragons #gameofthrones will go in forever... Can you believe that our precious intern Emma made these ‘dragon eggs' out of thumb tacks which she painstakingly spent hours crafting - and then spray painted them to perfection because she was so moved by the finished piece? That's the power of art and it doesn't have to be your "thang" for one to appreciate beauty, quality and excellence. #womenwhowearMadly
Launched by Kiss92 DJ Maddy Barber in 2015, Madly is the place for luxe and gemstone lovers. Some of these precious stones that they have fashioned for their clientele into stunning, romantic pieces include garnets, tourmalines and spinels.
Their bespoke jewellery are all handcrafted in 18k gold by skilled artisans, so you’re guaranteed to get the best pieces in the highest quality.
2. For the traditional at heart: Choo Yilin
A thoughtful pairing of luxury and intricacy - the Sakura Dainty Studs with White Sapphires make for a romantic complement to the Sakura Garland Necklace and its colourful array of precious gems. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Request a viewing of handcrafted jadeite jewellery designed to celebrate love stories via chooyilin.com. #chooyilin #finejewellery #TypeAJadeite #sapphires #9KT
Initiated by Choo Yilin, this award winning eponymous fine jewellery label’s speciality lies in jadeite. The 10 year-old local powerhouse is known for giving the traditional green gemstone a modern spin.
Yilin works mainly with Type-A Burmese jadeite. These jades are 100 per cent natural, which means that they are untreated and undyed. She also works with precious gemstones. For the bespoke service, it normally takes up to a minimum of 16 weeks to realise.
They’d also have a few ready-to-wear pieces that are available for purchase.
3. For the art aficionado: State Property
The Battuta Ring with a pink tourmaline centre stone. Pink and white enamel bring bright and sprightly energy to the bold silhouette of this ring. In true celebration of the summertime, these pastels are a soon-to-be staple. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thevoyager #pinktourmaline #pinkenamel #enamelring #boldring #summmerjewelry #highjewelry #finejewelry #couture2019 #thisiscouture #summercolours
State Property is one of Singapore’s fine jewellery labels that specialises in contemporary design. Founded by Lin Ruiyin, a jeweller, and Afzal Imram, an industrial designer, this local brand has expanded its business internationally. It has also became a favourite by Hollywood celebrities such as Lady Gaga and Nicole Kidman.
They offer three types of bespoke services. Namely Realise (crafting and designing from scratch), Reimagine (turning old jewellery into something new and current) and Restore (repairing and giving a new life to loved jewellery).
4. For the refined gentlewoman: Carrie K

5. For the spirited soul: Studio Emoi
And if you’re someone who’s into delicate and dainty jewellery, you’d definitely want to visit Studio Emoi. Founded by Laura Tudol last year, this Singaporean label (yup, you heard us right) draws its inspiration from French girls and their love for subtle accessories.
Their bespoke service allows you to customise and incorporate messages into their bracelets, rings and hoops. All of their jewellery are made in 14k gold and rose gold, or argentium silver 935 via an Asian-inspired filigree method.
