Whether it’s something to pull a look together or jazz up an an otherwise bland garment, we all know what a good accessory can do — both to an outfit and how you feel about yourself. And while curating an arsenal of such beautiful pieces isn’t usually kind on the wallet, these five Asian brands are the rare gems proving otherwise.
From Tiny Islands
Hailing from Indonesia, From Tiny Islands makes chic, minimalist jewellery that you can layer, or wear on their own. Inspired by the designers’ travels, their stackable rings, necklaces, and earrings are all under $100.
Also from Indonesia, Klar uses hand-molded acrylic as their main medium — turning heads with transparent and translucent wearable works of art. They’ve even parlayed these pieces into centrepiece embellishments on leather bags that are equally stunning.
Using silk to create delicate, floral brooches, earrings, necklaces and bracelets, this Thai label pulls off after-dark glamour despite its bohemian influences. They’re definitely one to bookmark when you’re looking to impress.

An effort by two sisters, this Singapore brand stocks stunning, one-of-a-kind pieces that are made by hand. We’re a little bit obsessed with their necklaces that are gorgeous works of art and, sure fire conversation starters.
Anders & Dawn
Local multi-label e-tailer Anders & Dawn stocks jewellery (and clothing too) that make understated statements with their fuss-free aesthetic. Their eponymous in-house label opts for quirky, geometric shapes and unexpected textures.
