Introducing the Peranakan Flower collection that recalls their signature series, Choo Yilin weaves a new chapter in their artisanal creations

When it comes to crafting cultural motifs into exquisite adornments, Choo Yilin is the undisputed master. The homegrown label that catapulted the vibrant Peranakan heritage into the fine jewellery stratosphere — which also recently celebrated a milestone with its flagship store opening — chalks up another with a lavish extension to their iconic pieces in the new Peranakan Flower collection.

Choo Yilin Peranakan Flower collection

Centring the spotlight back on their iconic matriarch series, Choo Yilin gives it a fresh reinterpretation with intricate floral detailing inspired by one of Peranakan culture's most visible symbols, the Nyonya Kebaya. Featuring an abundance of beautifully elaborate patterns of flowers, butterflies and birds upon its fabrics, the traditional kebaya is made with the utmost patience and devotion to its wealth of complex motifs. Likewise, the Peranakan Flower collection reflects this meticulous floral intricacy and colourful vivacity in its construction.

Refined handcrafted filigree and milgrain metalwork by skilled artisans embellish Choo Yilin's signature jade creations; studded with semi-precious gemstones such as rhodolite garnet, pink amethyst, white and sky blue topaz. With a full ensemble that includes bangles, earrings, necklaces and unique open-ended rings, the Peranakan Flower collection is a proud heritage symbol that wears as glamorous contemporary jade pieces you'll want to curate for your jewellery box.

The Choo Yilin Peranakan Flower collection will be available from August.
