Carrie K. X Paige Parker

Whether as accessories for your bridal look or stunning gifts for your mother, MIL or bridesmaids, we love these travel-inspired pieces from the Journey Collection, a collaboration between local jeweller Carrie. K and philanthropist, gemmologist, and author, Paige Parker. The collection draws on the latter's love for travel as well as her Guinness World Record road trip across 116 countries over six continents in three years with husband Jim Rogers, hence taking on the motifs of navigational tools like the compass. 

Crafted with gemstones that bear meaningful messages, Red Garnet, Blue Topaz, Moonstone and Green Onyx – symbols of passion, courage, strength and protection, they make for lovely gifts for the ladies in your life, serving as little reminders to take charge of their lives. 

To carry it foward, 50% of profits from the Journey collection will be donated to the Singapore Committee for UN Women that runs programmes that empower women through education and job opportunities. 

Available in 925 silver, 9k and 18k gold. Journey will be available at Carrie K. Fine Jewellery Atelier located at #02-02 National Design Centre from 5th November 2018. A made-to-order option is also available for customers who purchase 9kt or 18kt gold pieces. Choose from 17 gem selections including Topaz, Quartz, Amethyst, Peridot, Garnet, Moonstone and Tiger Eye at no additional cost.
