Local jeweller Choo Yilin is a label that's firmly grounded by heritage and roots, choosing to design with jade predominantly as a medium. Without letting go of that precious past and incorporating new materials to signify the celebrated values of Chinese tradition, a limited-edition capsule collection of Chinese New Year jade rings make for starting the year with good vibes abound.
Jade rings might be the jeweller's mainstay, but it's the yellow gold symbolising balance and good luck that is in spirit of the upcoming new year. Red garnet, whisky quartz and citrine in Choo Yilin's signature Trilliant, Cushion and Marquise cuts have been rimmed in the auspicious metal, fashioned in shape of the bamboo motif. Elegant jade encircle the finger when worn, completing the traditional masterpiece.
A match made in heaven for the lady who holds the Chinese values close to her heart, these jade rings are a fresh addition to your mother or grandmother's jade collection. The best part? They'll complement — but not replace — the prized pieces they've cherished over the years.
The Choo Yilin Chinese New Year Jade Ring collection launches on 12 January, and can be purchased online here, or in store at 331 Joo Chiat Road.
