Korean Jewellery Edit: Shop trendy genderless jewellery pieces as these brands ship direct to Singapore
If there's anything we learned from obsessing over the street style looks at Seoul Fashion Week season after season, it's these three words: accessorise, accessorise, accessorise. It doesn't matter if you're talking about Spring/Summer or Fall/Winter. The single easiest way to elevate your look is to accessorise.
And just like the fashion scene, Korean jewellery designers have really stepped up their game. Creating well-crafted, timeless pieces that run the gamut from simple minimalist styles to over-the-top statement creations, these young and brilliant minds produce some truly winning collections that we're absolutely swooning over.
Here are some of our favourites so far. Shop the collection online as they ship internationally, or follow them on Instagram to get your daily dose of K bling inspo.
Chain pieces are a major highlight of its pre-fall '20 collection. Otherwise, there are choices aplenty for bold, chunky necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets. Everything is crafted in either silver-plated brass or 14K gold, and we love how the designer turns simple shapes and forms into versatile creations.

Love handmade jewellery? Then you'll love the creations from this quaint, artisanal family-owned label with a name that means 'wish' in French. Each piece is made to order, designs are totally unisex and range from minimalist to over-the-top to one-of-a-kind.
Offering a fashion-forward approach to jewellery design, here's where you can find everyday wearable pieces with a sculptural aesthetic. Playing with motion, shape and size, the designs are mostly genderless and can be layered or mixed and matched with all kinds of outfits. But why 1064? Because that's the melting temperature of gold.
There's a fun and playful vibe in these pieces which comes from the designers' bold use of all kinds of materials and not just metal. Made to order, these demi-fine handmade jewellery in sterling silver, brass, or 14K gold take anywhere from 10 to 14 days to be produced manually.
Here's an up-and-coming jewellery design studio offering handmade pieces crafted in limited quantities. We're loving the goth vibes in the Velvet Goldmine and Warrior collections - they totally look like something Seo Ye-ji would wear on the set of It's Okay To Not Be Okay.
There's something hauntingly beautiful about the pieces here, as they evoke nature while forefront its fleeting beauty. Organic lines meet raw finish as every ring, necklace, or brooch aims to emulate florals and foliage – even a collarbone-inspired ring. And they're all so finely crafted you find yourself hearing the imaginary "crunch" of dried leaves and twigs.
Genderless jewellery that transcends fashion stereotypes, this audacious label goes far out of the box in its designs. Pieces are created to be mixed and matched, many come in a choice of gold as well as silver. We simply love the ear cuffs – you must see those gold plated Airports (yes Airports).
