Update – Tiffany & Co. HardWear Collection

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

IMAGE: @WALNUTCRUST FOR TIFFANY & CO.

Next to a piece of jewellery’s overall aesthetics, wearability is just as important, if not the most important factor one considers before committing to the purchase. And because we’re always on the lookout for a piece of jewellery that sits nicely on us that’s also comfortable because when we feel good, we look better.

Which brings us to this particular line that’s stated under every piece of Tiffany’s HardWear collection on their online portal. ‘Designed to be comfortable and easy to wear’ may be a rather bold statement by Tiffany but it also goes to show their commitment to quality and wearability. And with a collection like HardWear that’s both comfortable to wear and pleasing to the eyes, what’s not to love?

And while most of Tiffany’s HardWear collection that has been launched on April 28 at all boutiques worldwide is made up of an array of bracelets, earrings, necklaces and rings, we have narrowed them down to the 3 must-haves from the collection for your perusal.

First up, we have the HardWear Wrap Necklace in 18k yellow gold (SGD18,800), a 92 cm wonder inspired by an archive piece (see above for the original ad) that’s long enough to be looped over such that the ball and the lock seem to be on two separate chains, as if you draped two necklaces over your neck. Then there’s the HardWear Triple Drop Earrings (SGD4100, also in 18k yellow gold), a clear knockout as far as earrings are concerned. There’s something about the graduation of the golden orb that hangs ever so beautifully, a chic and unique piece that’s a natural showstopper. Rounding up the trio, it’s also a necklace (HardWear Graduated Link Necklace, SGD15,600) that starts small at the clasp before it gradually increases in size till you get to the front of the necklace. And no, you won’t end up looking like a mafia boss from the 80s.

Besides the 18k yellow gold pieces, some of the pieces do come in sterling silver as well, so there’s definitely something for everyone. From Tiffany’s HardWear Ball Ring (SGD345) to the HardWear Ball Dangle Ring (SGD685), these are pieces you can slip on on days when you feel more silver than gold. The silver jewellery also extends to other pieces like the HardWear Bead Cuff (SGD675) which comes in the familiar Tiffany & Co. silhouette that’s finished with polished orbs on either end.

Contrary to its name, HardWear isn’t hard to wear at all. Rather, it’s designed to be comfortable and easy to wear. And we rather believe that Hard is better used to describe the women that Wear these pieces. She’s bold, she’s confident and she’s strong.

Apple x Hermès Équateur Tatouage Band

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

IMAGE: HERMÈS

If you’re a Apple fan, or an Hermès fan for that matter, you would already know about the collaboration between both powerhouses on the Apple watch, and with the holiday season just around the corner, here’s something else you can consider for the loved one who already has such a timepiece.

Simply known as the Équateur Tatouage, it’s a new single tour band printed with a scarf motif designed by Robert Dallet on black calfskin. Look closely and you’ll see a leopard lurking amongst the lush jungle foliage, a print from the archives of the French luxury house that dates back to 1988.

Priced at SGD628 (just to be sure, it’s just the band with the watch sold separately), you will only be able to pick it up from Hermès’ newly-renovated boutique at Takashimaya Department Store.

Cartier: It’s Time For A New LOVE

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

IMAGE: CARTIER

It’s a situation most of us are familiar with. There’s something that we love and don’t really mind putting good money down for, but something about it holds us back. And in the case of Cartier’s LOVE bracelet, the more practical amongst you have lamented that because of the way it was designed, taking it off (and subsequently putting it back on) can be quite a hassle, especially when one is alone, and trying to do it all with the specially designed screwdriver is a pain. There, I said it.

With this premise in mind, I’ve got good news. Fans of the Cartier’sLOVE bracelet can now look forward to the newly redesigned LOVE 2.0(that’s what I’m calling it anyway). Instead of needing to unscrew both sides of the bracelet to open it, you now only need to do it to one side, with the other side supported by a new hinge-clasp that’s incorporated into the design.

IMAGE: CARTIER

Also, LOVE 2.0 is more sleek, with bracelets and rings made thinner than the current ones. What does that mean? Well, besides being able to stack more on the same wrist (because who doesn’t love a Cartier #wristparty, right?), it’s also priced much lower. So instead of paying SGD8650 for your regular entry-level models, you’ll only be paying SGD5600 for the new LOVE 2.0 bracelet, with only a slight difference to the way they both look when put side by side. In other words, two-thirds of the price but still looking like a million bucks, which is win-win if you ask me.

To be made available in Singapore at Cartier Ngee Ann City from early December 2016 (and the rest of the Cartier boutiques in Singapore from January 2017), you’ll really have no reason not to anymore. Really.

Think Tiffany & Co. and their shade of signature robin egg blue comes to mind, on a box that’s then lovingly swathed with a lush white ribbon. And come Christmas Day, I can confidently say most (if not all) women wouldn’t mind finding one or more of these boxes under the tree.

And because Tiffany & Co. has a selection of fancy and fine jewellery so immense that it would take me at least a full year to list every single item here, I’ve gone ahead and picked my personal favourites to make your decision-making process that much easier. See something you like? Send a link to your menfolk and they’ll probably get the hint. They’d better anyway, or else…

Disney Tsum Tsum X SK Jewellery Collection

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

IMAGE: SK JEWELLERY

I can think of at least 3 reasons why you should read this post. Firstly, it’s Disney Tsum Tsum! Secondly it’s Disney Tsum Tsum! And lastly, it’s Disney Tsum Tsum! Jokes aside though, with the way the world is now, it’s probably smartest to start putting your money into gold, and because not everyone here (me included) can actually afford gold ingots, this would be a start. And since they all come designed with the cutest Tsum Tsum characters as well, this is perhaps the best of both worlds. One of actually buying something that will hold its value in the long run, and adorable AF. Really.

From 999 pure gold charms in the shape of Mickey Mouse and Winnie The Pooh you can ‘stack’ onto the bracelet that’s also available via SK Jewellery, they also have cute Tsum Tsum characters in the form of pendants as well as gold coins (choose from 0.2 or 0.5 gm options) that come printed with cute mugshots of Elsa, Stitch, even Marie from the animated classic Aristocats.

IMAGE: SK JEWELLERY

For those who want to ‘splurge’, there are even gold bars that come in either 2 gm or 1 gm options. Well, not exactly gold bars, more sheets of gold than anything else, but you know what I mean. While there’s no word yet on their exact prices, you can now check out the full collection at SK Jewellery showrooms across Singapore. Another Christmas gifting option to put onto your shopping list perhaps?
