Great for: Per­anakan jew­ellery Founder and de­signer: Thomis Kwan Foun­da­tion Jewellers cat­a­pulted to fame last year af­ter news broke that Queen El­iz­a­beth of­ten wore a Per­anakan brooch made by them, which had been gifted to her by the Gov­ern­ment of Sin­ga­pore in 2012. Foun­da­tion is one of the only jewellers in Sin­ga­pore that fo­cuses on pre­serv­ing the Per­anakan craft, which uses an­cient gold­smithing tech­niques to cre­ate in­tri­cate mo­tifs that are in­her­ently linked to this cul­ture. Thomis seeks to mod­ernise this art and hopes that the next gen­er­a­tion will con­tinue to ap­pre­ci­ate this cul­tural craft.
