Save the Dates with Choo Yilin!

Click on the image to enlarge.

Save the dates! The CYL team pops up in the city for two full weekends to cater to the end-of-year festive season. Some of you have mentioned that you’d like more lead time for our events (especially from our friends based overseas who want to fly in to shop), so here’s an announcement in October! ;)

We have loads of exciting things planned, from flash sales @ 70% discount to a brand new collection launched. We’re also bringing in gorgeous loose gemstones (Spinels! Tourmalines! Aquamarines!) that you can pick to customise your own set of stackable rings.

We also have 15 black and white jade bangles that we’re bringing in especially for this event. They are all one-of-a-kind – no two jade bangles are identical – so come and pick the piece that calls out to you and choose your own CYL signature jade bangle motif. 

And there’s more… so watch this space over the next few weeks for details!

In the meantime, please visit our wonderful stockists if you’d like to purchase any of our RTW pieces. The events are designed in such a way that your shopping experience with CYL pieces will be kept distinct regardless of where you go.

Date:
9th to 10th November 
and
7th to 9th December

Time:
1100hrs to 1800hrs

Venue:
The Adelphi, #04-16

Project Centre Stage Diamond

Click on the image to enlarge.

This diamond came to us with Y, already at home in a traditional setting. Its new owner, C was already a big fan of our designs and the 1.55 carat diamond had to move houses and was reworked into a bespoke project that reflected C's personality better.

It now joins 35 other tiny diamonds in the neighbourhood surrounding it; several are set on and between the prongs on leaves with milgrained details, while the rest are in a straight row down the street in a half-eternity design, also with milgrain "fences" ;)

Set entirely in solid 18KT white gold, the diamond is now secure in its happy new home on C's finger.

Her World Plus, Singapore. September, 2012.

Our Druzy collection was featured on Her World PLUS's website in September. Our favourite part? 
"The result is statement jewellery that packs plenty of punch – a gritty, unpolished centre stone co-exists gracefully with webs of yellow gol
d and silver. "

Many thanks, J, for the mention!
