In­spired by Asia’s buzzing cul­tures and vivid colours, Maarz Pearls has be­come well-known on Sin­ga­pore’s in­die fash­ion scene for its af­ford­able, wear­able and classy jew­ellery creations for women.

De­signed by Maryam in Sin­ga­pore, each piece is crafted by hand in Shang­hai us­ing pearls and semi-pre­cious stones and crys­tals sourced on her trav­els around the world. “I want to show women that pearls can be worn by any­one, at any age,” she says. “I’m in­spired to show how they can look mod­ern by com­bin­ing them with other ma­te­ri­als.”

Now, she’s cel­e­brat­ing a new mile­stone – the launch of her on­line store – which has been a long time com­ing! “I’ve had a great re­sponse do­ing pop-up events and tak­ing ap­point­ments the last few years, but as the brand has grown I’ve had a lot of in­ter­est from peo­ple out­side Sin­ga­pore (the UK and Dubai, for ex­am­ple) who want to browse the en­tire range.” Mo­ti­vated by feed­back, she has now launched her web­site and new col­lec­tions to go with it.

Our favourite picks? The eye-catch­ing Druzy col­lec­tion, which fea­tures the dis­tinc­tive stone in bold hues of fuch­sia pink, elec­tric blue and black. What’s more, each of the neck­lace and bracelet de­signs are plated in 18k gold and ster­ling sil­ver for a luxe fin­ish.

“I want to show women that pearls can be worn by any­one, at any age.”
