Singapore Tatler Jewels & Time
Exotic Gems & Jewellery may be a small outfit but it’s big on creativity, gemstone quality, and friendship.
Exotic Gems & Jewellery is like one big family. The team doesn’t view each transaction as a mere business deal. They see it as an establishment of a friendship and each client a new member to the bigger Exotic Gems & Jewellery family.
Which is why they are happy to attend to any request—big or small. Founder Joanne Chua (pictured) takes charge of the design process of any bespoke request from setting a gemstone into a piece of jewellery to refurbishing and modernising old jewellery so that they are modernised and become wearable again.
After Chua puts the client’s vision onto paper, the jewellery is intricately handcrafted by its team of highly-skilled artisans locally. At every step of the process—from the sourcing of gemstones to designing to handcrafting—the team ensures that at no point is quality compromised and always kept to strict and high standards.
The brand specialises in coloured gemstones and in its showroom sits an array of high quality collection gemstones. Carefully sourced and procured by its in-house jeweller, Queenie Chua, each gemstone is screened and checked rigorously. While Exotic Gems & Jewellery largely creates bespoke pieces for their clients, it also produces ready-to-wear creations.
Clients also appreciate the stability Exotic Gems & Jewellery has offered over the years. Since 1990, it has been designing unique jewellery pieces that reflect its clients’ individuality. Serving clients from the Central Business District for nearly two decades now—first at OUB Centre (now known as ONE Raffles Place) and now at Chevron House—exotic Gems & Jewellery continues pursuing greater heights in creativity, quality and value.
The good news? The brand plans to stay a compact outfit to continually improve standards. Because its clients—or rather, friends—deserve only the best.
