Our list of custom jewellers who can turn your design dreams into a personalised masterpiece.
More than Diamonds
More than Diamonds is a jeweller that will tell you that “Biggest is not the best”. Chris and Sara have been creating jewellery in their own style for the past decade, and while they custom design according to each person’s ideas, many clients seek them out for their distinct minimal style, otherwise not found in Singapore.
They source diamonds and gemstones to your requirements and can design anything, be it engagement and wedding rings, anniversary gifts or a well-deserved treat for yourself. You can bring along pictures and describe your ideas – or let Chris and Sara suggest a suitable design for you, following a friendly chat. In line with their simplicity, they don’t upsell, so you can rest assured that the advice you are getting is design-led with wearability in mind.
More than Diamonds can also use your own diamonds and gemstones, so you can redesign an old piece of jewellery into a piece that you want to wear. You will be surprised how different a gemstone from an old-fashioned ring can look when set in a new design! If you want long-lasting and wearable jewellery, then More than Diamonds is the right place for you.
The new Brand Experience Centre of MADLY Gems gives customers an experiential journey of a bespoke jewel straight from the source. From an interactive map of the world’s mining locations to a virtual gem-cutting demonstration, you can witness gems in their rough form at the mines and watch how they’re slowly shaped and polished into the final gleaming gem.
After understanding this journey, you’ll be better placed to create your own meaningful heirloom jewel. MADLY’s designers will sit down with you to chat about your style, the occasion and your vision for the piece. Then, you can watch them put pen to paper and sketch out your personalised jewellery on the spot.
By exposing the “unglamorous” side of fine jewellery, the brand hopes clients will appreciate the beauty of Mother Nature, and the hard work, creativity and artistry that goes behind unlocking each jewel’s potential.

Stephanie Wong Jewellery
Stephanie Wong handcrafts fine designer jewellery and draws her inspiration from the organic shapes of nature and urban architecture that surrounds her in Singapore. The graphic lines, textures and patterns of her work are inspired by elements of modernist design and current fashion.
Stephanie is also endlessly fascinated with the hues of natural gemstones and the shifting colours of precious metals. Her jewellery design is firmly rooted in the traditional techniques of metalsmithing, upon which she experiments and creates modern, wearable pieces that showcase their unique characters.
With a design philosophy aimed at bringing beauty to life one piece at a time, this is jewellery that’s intended to be wearable, comfortable, artful, beautiful and durable. A focus on simplicity, harmony and balance in the designs also lends the pieces a timeless quality that allows them to become future heirlooms. Ethical shoppers will be pleased to know, too, that the gemstones are natural and sourced mine-to-market where possible, and all the diamonds are conflict-free.
GIOIA Fine Jewellery
Led by creative director and experienced jewellery designer Cheryl Woon, GIOIA’s specialty is bespoke custom jewellery in Singapore. There’s a wide range of gemstones you can choose from to incorporate into your design, including ruby, emerald, sapphire, spinel and the uber-premium paraiba tourmaline. Paraiba is often used in luxury jewellery and is touted not only as the most valued gemstone in the tourmaline family, but one of the rarest gemstones around. The unique neon greenish-blue colour of paraiba tourmaline from Brazil is absolutely eye-catching! There are rare coloured gemstones available, too, such as unheated royal blue sapphires, padparadscha sapphires and pigeon blood rubies.
Each precious gemstone at GIOIA is handpicked for its brilliant colour and quality, and the team really display their creativity in the way they incorporate the stories behind the gemstones into their designs.
Exclusively awarded Best Singapore Jeweller by Tatler Asia in 2021 and 2022, Les Precieux is one for the conscious shopper – the brand has a focus on sustainability and uses labgrown diamonds instead of mined ones. It also specialises in custom jewellery in Singapore, creating bespoke engagement rings and celebration jewellery using natural unheated sapphires and gemstones.
If you’re after a bespoke jewellery piece, you can enjoy a private shopping experience under the personalised guidance of Les Precieux’s team of experts. They make use of both bespoke physical sample designs in store and computer-aided design drawings to help customers visualise the design of their jewellery pieces right down to the fine details, eliminating the likelihood of any discrepancy between a handsketched design and the final product.
