A Delightful Indulgence

A Delightful Indulgence – top view of the ring

D is a beloved old friend to us, commissioning many pieces since our founding days. For this bespoke heirloom project, she had only one request – she wanted it to match a pair of simple moonstone and diamond studs she had commissioned earlier http://chooyilin.blogspot.sg/2011/09/mad-for-moonstones.html

The pair of moonstone studs we did earlier, with diamond studded leaves cusping the stones set in 18KT gold. D wanted them to look like pearls.


We were really excited to find a perfectly spherical moonstone in an almost identical shade to the earring studs. And, letting the earlier piece guide our design, this was the final result, complete with a three-dimensional diamond-studded flower peeking out from the side of this special project.

A project from Choo Yilin's bespoke heirloom line - creating stories for you, by you.

Project Jewellery Designer - From Her Eyes


From C’s eyes – the bride shares her side of the story. This is what C wrote to us:

Thank you so much for the work of art that P and I will cherish. When I saw the ring I just thought of how proud I'd be to pass it on to a child of ours some day - it's just a timeless, stunning piece. To be honest, as we were in the process of designing the ring, I was a little nervous about the amount of ornamentation on the setting of the ring but now every day as I look at the ring I see something new and amazing about it which I didn't observe before. (Usually the different light situations. Very pretty.)

Also, I've been following the posts on your Facebook recently and can see the signature Choo Yilin aesthetic in my ring and the ones you've been posting about recently. I can see that you are all working so hard at your craft, and I just want to say that I'm happy to be a small part of that and to cheer you on your journey. *pom poms*
