You don’t need to sacrifice your savings plan to sparkle in real gems and precious metals. Local Singapore designers are creating affordable jewellery that’s also super stylish. You get real pearls, gemstones and precious metals like gold and rhodium at prices that make it easy to hit “add to cart”.
So how do they do it? Singapore actually has a long history of jewellery manufacture, so many of these designers have access to expert craftspeople who can handle tricky techniques like gold vermeil.
This is an ancient technique where genuine gold is applied in a thick layer over real silver. Vermeil jewellery, also called “Gold-filled jewellery” is called “demi-fine” jewellery because it is filled or plated with more gold than cheap “flash plated” items. The gold layer in gold vermeil jewelley can be up to 1000 times thicker than flash plating, so it’s much more lasting.
You may not have heard of all of these affordable jewellery designers in Singapore before, but they all offer the option of one-off designs or limited-edition ranges. So you can be sure you won’t see your gorgeous necklace or ring on everyone else. You get the glamour of designer jewellery, at great prices. It’s the spirit of modern luxury.
So whether you’re looking for dainty rings, a dramatic cuff bracelet or a stylish jade pendant, you can find it in this list of affordable jewellery lines by Singapore designers.
