Personalised, bespoke jewellery in Singapore

If you’re on the hunt for a good necklace or ring customised down to the very tee, right to your exact preferences, this list will come in handy. From engagement rings to bespoke necklaces, personalised jewellery can jazz up a simple LBD or add a personal touch to a gift for that special someone. Not into the whole “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” saying? We’ve got you covered with gemstones that are equally beautiful too!

Facets Singapore | Inspired by you

Founded in 1980, Facets Singapore is a diamond wholesaler that offers bespoke services for bridal and estate pieces. Snazzy technology comes into play when you get to see a 3D-printed wax model of the ring before it’s sent to crafting! We sit down with Business Development Manager and GIA Graduate Nikhil Hathiramani for a chat.

What is your most memorable project so far?
“We had a customer in the UK who contacted us for a custom engagement ring through a friend’s recommendation. We communicated via email and on a business trip here he picked up the piece for the first time. After the proposal, he found out the size was too big; an honest mistake on his part! We are committed to resizing for free but not having access to the ring was a challenge. Thankfully our founder Suresh was travelling to the UK so they met in a small café in London and Suresh collected the ring. He then brought the ring back and we had it resized accurately before returning it to the customer just in time for their wedding.”

What’s your business vision?
“Facets strives to push the boundaries of what it means to be a diamond wholesaler in today’s competitive marketplace.”

Launched in October last year, online bespoke jewellery store Gifts Less Ordinary has now expanded to Japan, Australia and the U.S. Gift idea: personalise the ring, bracelet or necklace of choice with a hand-engraved message or date! We sit down and have a word with founder Amy Read.

What is your most memorable project so far?
“A young man was looking for a ring to propose to his girlfriend. We helped him select a rose gem spinning ring engraved with ‘Together forever’ and the date they first met. This was gifted inside a leather ring box with the message ‘Will you marry me’ embossed outside.”

What’s your business vision?
“We take the hard work out of gifting. Buying thoughtful and bespoke gifts for a friend or a loved one should be a pleasure, not a chore. There is nothing more precious than seeing someone’s face light up with pure joy when they receive a gift that is not only beautiful, but also well thought out.”

Here’s what Deanna and Yilin from Choo Yilin have to say.

What is your most memorable project so far?
“They are all extremely memorable because these pieces are all so distinctly different and significant in their own way. Our clients come to us with some of the most beautiful love stories and we’re just thankful that we get to play a part in immortalising their journey.”
