#BUROSupportsLocal: 19 Malaysian jewellery brands to shop

All that glitters does not have to come from across the seas—Malaysia is brimming with talents after all. From edgy, head-turning ornaments to timeless engagement rings to seal your declaration of love, these homegrown jewellery brands prove you don’t have to look far for pieces to remember.

 

For everyday jewels that are tarnish-resistant…

 

INARI JEWELLERY

Inari Jewellery came into existence upon a passion for artisan jewels. Founded by Eva Woon in 2022, the relatively new brand strives to empower women via handmade pieces that are unique in their own style. What’s more, the label takes pride in championing sustainability by using materials like gold-filled and sterling silver, which are perfect for those seeking durable accessories. Along the way, Inari Jewellery aims to educate the local community about jewellery production in hopes that anyone can make a wise decision when buying jewellery.

WANDERLUST + CO

You can count on Wanderlust + Co to provide beautiful and high-quality jewellery designs at a reasonable price. Founded by Jenn Low, it has easily become one of the best jewellery brands in Malaysia to shop from, offering daily jewels predominantly crafted from recycled brass, stainless steel and sterling silver bases. Each design can be effortlessly stacked for a whimsical yet classy appeal. Additionally, what sets this brand apart from others is its commitment to sustainability, which includes creating a safe working environment for the artisans and using eco-friendly materials that are gentle on the earth and your skin.

GUNG

Gung is a stellar choice when you are on the lookout for jewellery with edgy designs and an air of sophistication. Made from high-quality materials like stainless steel and plated brass, this jewellery brand in Malaysia offers bold pieces of jewellery, including tassel earrings and chain link necklaces that are sure to catch people’s attention when worn.

TAILORED JEWEL

Understated and refined, Tailored Jewel’s jewellery collection is strikingly simple, yet covetable. Most of the piece are crafted in 14k solid white or rose gold, and set with a single diamond for a hint of sparkle. The brand started off online but has since expanded to a physical location at The Boulevard Mid Valley in KL, offering consultancy and jewellery repair services. They make diamond rings and wedding bands as well.

THE STRAITS FINERY

Founded by Foo Chia Chern and Amira Yahaya, The Straits Finery specialises in 14k gold creations with pared-down designs that are perfect for stacking. With a repertoire devoid of stones—a rather atypical move for a jewellery brand—their designs shine with minimalistic, geometric forms and quiet elegance. Eco-consciousness is also a value that the brand prides itself on, from its custom-made packaging that was designed to minimise waste to efforts in carbon offsetting.

MYJN

Demi-fine jewellery label MYJN (an acronym for May-Jun) promises quality at an affordable price, made possible by their choice of ethically sourced materials—that includes gold vermeil (925 sterling silver plated with a thick layer of 14 to 24k gold) and sterling silver. From elegant pearl-adorned necklaces to edgy, raw-formed rings, there is something for every personality here.

If you haven’t heard, the brand was launched in 1999 and boasts conflict-free and organically sourced diamonds.

A post shared by SELBERAN (@selberan)

Born of a collaboration between Royal Selangor and two European master jewellers in 1973, Selberan takes pride in their 18k gold and diamond jewellery featuring fine craftsmanship and classic motifs. Inspirations for their creations range from the exotic (‘Rococo Reimagined’ and ‘Persia’) to local culture (‘Batik’ and ‘Songket’).

Fun fact: the jeweller has even been given the royal seal of approval—it was entrusted with the restoration of the Sultan of Selangor’s coronation crown in 2003, where it refitted a ceremonial songkok with diamonds and rubies.
