The Homegrown Designers Flying The Flag And Making A Statement At JeweLuxe Singapore
1/7 State Property
Set up by Central Saint Martins‑trained jeweller Lin Ruiyin and industrial designer Afzal Imram, State Property is the antithesis of the classical aesthetic that often pervades the industry. Its jewels play on shape, function and form, and are a 21st-century take on art deco.

Ivy Masterpiece is a trusted brand in Singapore’s jewellery industry, and is now run by Ronald Low—the son of its founder Ivy Choa—and his fiancee Sarah Tan. Glowing testaments from its loyal clientele attest to the brand’s commitment to creativity and quality.
3/7 Jaipore by Ritu Aurora
Chosen by royalty around Asia, Jaipore by Ritu Aurora vaunts jewels with a timeless appeal, but with an uncanny recognition of what today’s women want. Whether it is drop chandelier earrings with diamonds and emeralds, or tassel necklaces that dazzle with precious stones, these pieces have an enduring quality to them.

4/7 Elliott & Carmen
Coloured stones like jadeite, pigeon’s blood rubies and sapphires feature prominently in the works of Elliott & Carmen. They anchor each piece, which is then accentuated with diamonds to highlight their beauty.
5/7 Yuki Mitsuyasu
This award-winning Singapore-based brand is an extension of its namesake founder Yuki Mitsuyasu’s own aesthetic and her desire to create jewels that are beautiful from all angles.
6/7 Maison Tjoeng
The works of Maison Tjoeng founder Yasmin Tjoeng are inspired by her multicultural background—the Australian-born designer of Chinese and European descent was raised in Papua New Guinea. Despite being bold interpretations of her international upbringing, all her pieces are innately wearable on a daily basis.
