Sparkling treasures
by Leong Phei Phei

ONE is inspired by the grandness and majesty of love. The other draws inspiration from the modern women. Yet another wants to personify romance in jewellery.

Goldheart Jewelry's Grandiosa, Poh Heng Jewellery's Visionaire by itrustme collection, and TianPo Jewellery's Romanga are signature collections inspired by the Love of Romance, which will be showcased at the Singapore JewelFest 2009.

The Grandiosa is a one-of-its-kind, magnificent choker of 135 round brilliant diamonds of one-carat each, embellished with five spectacular teardrop design of round brilliant diamond clusters and a centerpiece that features a 30-carat round brilliant diamond. The entire piece has 369 high-calibre brilliant diamonds totaling 206.95 carat.

Goldheart Jewelry's assistant brand manager Mr Gary Goh says: 'Grandiosa is designed to convey the five beacons of love that are words of love, gifts of love, time for love, acts of love and the intimacy of love.'

Poh Heng Jewellery's Visionaire, on the other hand, is a piece inspired by the modern women. Poh Heng's director Chng Hwee Siang says: 'It is designed to encapsulate feminine individuality and match the enterprising spirit of the itrustme woman - a gogetter who lives by her own rules.

'The dramatic and dynamic collection features a striking dome-shaped design and sleek contours of incandescent 18K white gold encircled by rows of glittering diamonds that reflect the constant creation of innovative ideas by a woman with vision, wit and elegance. Diamonds also symbolise love and eternal union,' she adds.

TianPo Jewellery's Romanga is a statement piece that will appeal to the fashion savvy and jewellery lover.

TianPo's general manager Joseph Hong says: 'Inspired by the snug formation of the toga-design in fashion terms, we have added on an extension piece that encapsulates the shoulder area and which illustrates the placement of the hand and arm of your loved one over your shoulder, symbolising affection and fondness.'

'This piece will appeal to the woman who isn't afraid to express her bold sentiments on being in love.'
