Jewellery pieces are always a flattering way to complete your everyday outfit — whether you are going out for dinner or working at home. Even just a simple pair of earrings can make you feel more put together and excited for the day to come.
The pandemic has made it difficult for local brands to thrive, so supporting local businesses have never been more important. If you are looking for a new piece of jewellery to add to your collection, keep your eye out for some of these up-and-coming homegrown jewellery brands.
Lucy & Mui
Named after founder Rachael Kam’s maternal and paternal grandmothers, Lucy & Mui aims to provide shoppers with honest, handmade jewellery crafted by local artisans. This brand hopes to add femininity to modern aesthetics through wearable and intimate jewellery.
While Lucy & Mui is widely known for its uniquely made engagement rings and wedding bands, it also offers everyday jewellery. Here, no two pieces are the same, so consumers will truly have a one-of-a-kind creation. If you have a jewellery idea, check out its bespoke page, where the team at Lucy & Mui will help create your very own customised jewellery piece.
This local jewellery brand offers niche, unique, and sustainable jewellery made from renewable resources. These pieces are sourced from the waste of industrial processes such as wood pulp. These materials are then moulded, cast, sand, and polished right in Singapore. As each piece is made from scratch, no two pieces are alike.
Do note you will need to make an appointment to visit its store to have a look at what pieces are currently available.
