When it comes to local jewellery boutiques, most Singaporeans probably think of Poh Heng Jewellery or SK Jewellery. But there are now many more players in the market. Smaller, leaner companies that move faster with the trends and are much more unafraid when it comes to trying something completely different.

In this article, we will feature pieces from 3 of these relatively new players in the market.

Modest Minerals

Price Range:

Specialty: Semi-precious and precious gemstones.

Modest Minerals is the newest kid on the block, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and always happy to tell you about their favourite gems. It is perhaps the only shop where shoppers can sort by properties, to find a gem that suits their personality and needs!

Specialty: Fine jewellery for everyday wear

Tessellate has been around for a few years and it’s all thanks to the tenacity of its founder, who decided to drop out of the university to start Tessellate. Much like how a chef travels to handpick her produce, or prime cuts of meat, founder May goes to India to handpick her favourite gems.

A beautiful piece with top quality labradorite stone ornaments throughout, it’s an understated piece that lights up whenever you move your body. Like the wings of a carpenter bee, Labradorite is iridescent – which means its appears to change colours when the light quality changes.
