Pure craftsmanship and meaningful inspirations take centre stage in these stunning creations
From a cherry blossom branch to clouds seen on top of a mountain and a dashing kingfisher bird, we highlight some of our favourite Singapore-based jewellers’ inspirations for their iconic fine jewellery creations.
“I draw my design concepts from everywhere and anywhere,” shares Michael Koh, Founder and Designer of Caratell. “It could be places I visited, architecture, nature, things around us, films, or even the gemstone itself.” For his new collection, Above the Clouds, Koh was inspired by the magnificent clouds he saw on top of the ‘ruby’ mountain in Myanmar. “The clouds appeared to frolic lazily, teasing the tall trees in the mountains, reminding me of a pure, childhood joy.”
