When the final months of the year come around, it can only mean one thing: vacation season. With a plethora of destinations to choose from, we look forward to the holidays each year to relax, let our hair down and have fun! And while you immerse yourself with the itinerary and what to bring on your trip, here are some of our jewellery recommendations to still look chic on holiday.
Embarking to a destination that is unique and different like Cinque Terre? Play up your holiday ensemble with pieces of jewellery that are striking like the Bamboo Marquise Jade Ring with amethyst or the Bamboo Trilliant Ring with citrine (above). With their 4-carat checkerboard-cut gemstones, these rings lend an effortless yet bold statement to your holiday ensemble.
They say keep it simple but significant. Not all holidays have to involve lavish spending. Many times an easy holiday is very much preferred, like lazing on the sands of Bali. And while we meticulously plan all our outfits for each day of the holiday, the accessorizing department can be made fuss-free with our Bamboo-inspired pieces, such as the Bamboo Square Necklace and Bamboo Square Jade Ring. What more with the bamboo being a symbol of unassuming strength, appearing carefree and well-put-together while on vacation has never been easier.
A spectacular city is one that is vibrant, exciting and refreshing. It pays attention to heritage, revitalises old neighbourhoods and blooms with a distinct identity that sets it apart from other bustling metropolises. Thus it is no surprise that cities like Barcelona, Rome and Florence in Europe, and Bangkok and Kyoto in Asia are all-year popular destinations. Discovering a country's history and immersing yourself in culture while still enjoying the conveniences of a modern metropolis makes for a pleasurable vacation.
Match your desire for history and culture with the Peranakan Flower Collection. Adapted from the Peranakan flower commonly seen on the Nyonya Kebaya, the pieces from this collection are the perfect accessory for the discerning traveler looking to experience a different culture and stories past.
A fresh change of scenery is paramount to a rejuvenating vacation and to revel in mother nature's beauty is one of the best ways! The natural landscape is an antidote to the stress of hectic city life, providing you with a tranquil and restful experience in time to begin the new year energised.
The Sakura Florette and Cherry Blossom Collections are testaments to how we are inspired by the beauty of nature, turning this love into, lasting and wearable jewellery. Stay elegantly in bloom on vacation with these pieces (above) inspired by the Sakura flower.
