The four-year-old homegrown jewellery brand specialises in pretty arm candy with a bohemian touch. Pieces are made with ethically sourced stones such as lapis lazuli, amethyst and agate, and some also come with 18K gold charms in the form of peace symbols and flowers.
Last month, it introduced a more affordable bridge line called Tribal Gypsy, a series of modern, vibrant stretchable bracelets inspired by founder Shabnam Melwani’s recent travels to the sun-drenched locales of Tulum, Mexico and Ibiza, as well as the culturally rich Macchu Picchu in Peru. Designed to be worn stacked together, each bracelet features faceted 4mm semi-precious stones like quartz and amethyst with iridescent and metallic beads on an elastic band. Another big plus: They’re priced at $29 each, while items from its core range start from US$72.69 (S$99).
