Engagement rings in Singapore – jewellers for gems and diamond ring design
Every love story is unique, so your choice of wedding band and engagement ring should be custom-made too. Do you have a specific diamond ring design in mind or need some help from a jeweller? From traditional diamond rings to specially sourced gemstone designs, here’s where to buy engagement rings in Singapore. These jewellers also create jewellery for other special occasions like anniversaries – and, of course, eternity rings!
#1 MADLY Gems and diamond ring design
Jewellery is often bought or gifted to celebrate life’s most precious moments, and having a piece specially designed from scratch makes the occasion even more meaningful and unforgettable. Singapore-based MADLY specialises in coloured gemstone jewellery, and they can guide you through each step of the bespoke process.
Gem selection always comes first at MADLY, followed by ring design. This is because there are so many options that their team of designers can dream up, yet each gemstone is one-of-a-kind. They’re especially well positioned to source your dream gemstone. This is not only because they have sourcing offices at the mines, but they also have a vast network of miners, gem cutters and supply partners around the world, allowing them to ethically source the top 0.1 percent of fine natural gemstones.
After selecting your stone and finalising the gem or diamond ring design, the crafting process usually takes around eight to ten weeks, depending on its complexity. Bespoke pieces are hand-crafted by master craftsmen in 18K gold (yellow, white or rose) or platinum. Prices start from around $3,500.
MADLY is at 13 Ann Siang Road. For an appointment, call 6650 1544, WhatsApp 9001 2963, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit madlygems.com.

#3 ART N ASH custom engagement rings and diamond ring design
Jewellery entrepreneur Aarti Sonawala of ART N ASH is a certified gemologist, diamond grader and designer with years of experience.

#4 More than Diamonds – wedding bands and engagement rings in Singapore
If wearability and long-lasting design are more important to you than diamond size, then More than Diamonds is the place for you. Their clients seek them out for their distinct minimal style, something hard to find in Singapore. They can reuse handed-down diamond rings – from your mum or grandma, for instance – to redesign a new engagement ring and wedding band to suit your taste. Or they’ll work with any diamonds or gems you have and make them into a new piece.
When it comes to wedding rings, their signature style is ‘matching rather than identical’, which means they design to both the bride’s and groom’s individual tastes, while using a common element connecting the rings.
If you want something diﬀerent, but don’t identify with large showy engagement rings, you’ve found your match.
