CARATELL

Singapore Tatler Jewels & Time - - Gallery -

Founders and de­sign­ers: Michael Koh (above) and Achil­lea Teng If you thought that the only com­pelling rea­son to visit United Square was for kids, then you’ve not yet dis­cov­ered a hid­den gem: Caratell. The jeweller set up shop in 2004 and has built up a rep­u­ta­tion for con­jur­ing con­cep­tual de­signs that de­lin­eate its pas­sion for coloured stones. Caratell sources for rare, beau­ti­ful, multi-hued stones di­rectly from the mines, and founder Michael is also trained in lap­idary. They cut some of the more un­usual shapes in-house, al­low­ing the team greater free­dom in the de­sign process. This melange of stones and colours is well-demon­strated in its lat­est col­lec­tion, Im­pres­sion­ist, in­spired by the great works of Monet and Van Gogh.
