In a festive shopping rut? Fret not, we've put together a local jewellery gift guide for the holiday season

Suen Jewellers

If you're on the hunt for diamonds, Suen Jewellers is the ultimate place for glittering fine jewellery pieces that can be worn on a daily basis. Eternally timeless in style, their Love Diamond collection boasts a range of high-shine, low-key statement pieces in a variety of carats and cuts that can be dressed up or down. Alternatively, you can also opt for Italian partner-brand FOPE's flexible gold jewellery––dubbed Flex'it––featuring delicately linked, clasp-free bracelets crafted by a patented technology. 


Motherchuckers. x Chez G

Local loungewear brand Motherchuckers. has joined forces with Singaporean-based fine jeweller Chez G (pronounced shay g) to unveil an out-of-this-world pendant necklace inspired by the cosmos and all of its mystical wonder. Handmade in 925 silver with either silver or gold plating, it's the ultimate unisex accessory to layer or wear on its own for any occasion. 


Gung Jewellery

Influenced by founder Yinn Ooi’s background in interior architecture, Gung Jewellery's demi-fine pieces blend form and structure for the everyday. For the festive season, we're eyeing their 18k gold-plated wishing star pendant necklace and jewellery tray set that can both be engraved with personalised messages, initials or quotes for loved ones. 


Wanderlust + Co 

Inspired by love letters on kindness, Wanderlust + Co's latest 'Book Club' collection speaks to everything that the season of gifting is about. What better way to bid goodbye to 2021 than with a locket that celebrates progress and reflects on the new energy that the next chapter can bring? The nostalgic book-shaped collection features five 14k gold locket styles that carry different stories––of self-love, the future, hopes and dreams and more––and arrives in a limited-edition celestial gift box that includes a self-love manifestation note for your younger and future self. 


Oranda Jewellery

If you're on the hunt for customisable jewellery gifts, Oranda Jewellery is the place to go. Apart from their minimalist charms, the local brand's sleek, made-to-order designs is distinctive for the use of gothic lettering and scripting across pendant chain-link necklaces, vertical script bar earrings, band rings and dainty bracelets. There's even the option to have pieces made in Chinese or Arabic scripts. 



There's no better way to do holiday gifting than with everyday essentials to cherish forever, and female-founded MYJN's selection of elegant demi-fine jewellery hits the spot. Opt for their signature gold hoops in a variety of styles, from classic bands to mini sunshine-textured pieces and the three-in-one stack, as the ultimate golden gift for everyone on your nice list. As an added bonus, they also offer limited-edition holiday wrapping as well as a variety of other gifting choices, including a jewellery care kit and an eco-gifting box.
