Choo Yilin - fine jewellers - will be opening at Mandarin Gallery very soon.
Choo Yilin partners with heritage and social impact communities, creating luxurious pieces that tell important stories of their conservation efforts.
The label works with highly skilled artisans in South-East Asia that come from a long history of jade carving, silver-smithing and other fine jewellery techniques.
The brand is known for its richly-coloured gemstones as well as its sculptural and organic forms, winning numerous international design awards. It has exhibited its work at Paris Fashion Week and has been featured extensively in the press, including The New York Times and The Financial Times’ How To Spend It.
In a city dominated by luxe uber expensive brands, Lustre Jewellery stands out from the crowd. Why? Lustre is unique because it specialises in pieces that are unique, very often made in limited quantities, and all of this at a very reasonable price point. In fact due to the very nature of gemstones’ varying shapes, sizes and colours no two pieces can ever be identical. This is especially important in a small community like Singapore, but nice to also think that where ever you live, your jewellery is unique.
Thakkar, strives to launch four collections a year, focusing on personal inspiration and whimsy rather than on the passing of seasons like most other brands. She constantly draws inspiration from life around her, travel, and very often from geometric shapes.
She designs and has pieces crafted in limited numbers and doesn’t repeat her collections, thereby adding to the uniqueness of the brand. Most of the settings are in sterling silver, or gold plated brass alloy
Founded in 2011, Lustre is a distinctive brand that delivers high quality semi precious jewellery for the woman that has no age, knows no boundaries, is stylish without having to try too hard. She is unique and comfortable in that she is perfect in her own way.
The brand name instantly conjures up the gleam and fire of a gemstone, but its first four letters also spell the word “lust” - in this context, translated as every woman’s desire to own beautiful things and look good - all at an affordable price point.
Anaita Thakkar is the Founder, Director and Chief Designer of Lustre Jewellery. Since she was a little girl, she has had a love for semi precious gemstones and all the beauty they impart to modern contemporary jewellery. Originally from Bombay, she moved from Hong Kong to Singapore, where she noticed a distinct lack of affordable semi precious jewellery. She decided to carve a niche in the market and has realised the lack of high quality, one of a kind, stylish yet affordable jewellery for all collections.
She sources her stones, (both the common place like Amethyst to the more unusual like Moldavite) from India, the gem capital of the world. She works with artisans in ateliers dotted around the globe, who work to create Lustre’s pieces.
Passionate about her brand, and involved in every aspect of her business from designing, sourcing, marketing and finally selling the product is what drives Thakkar. Having control over quality makes her confident about showing off these amazing pieces, and is reflected in the loyalty she gets from her customers. This business is truly her baby, and she does a marvellous job in etching out a story for each piece she sells, with creativity and confidence.
Lustre Jewellery’s showroom is located at the heart of Singapore’s CBD area. A tiny bejewelled showcase representing a wide-range selection of natural cut unique gemstone jewellery that Lustre offers. Unlike at a store, you experience a bespoke shopping experience with the owner behind the brand. Thakkar is at the showroom each Tuesday and Thursday, and is both extremely personable and passionate about the brand.
