Galle Lights Morganite ring, $18,800
There’s always something so sweet and feminine about pink morganites and this fabulous statement ring lets the stone’s natural hue do all the talking. With a little help from the 18K rose gold silhouette plus a ring of fire from scintillating white diamonds, of course. But there is absolutely no doubt that the breathtaking 4.73-carat pear-cut morganite is the star of the show in this ring that pays tribute to the historic city of Galle, a place dear to the members of B.P. de Silva’s founding family. Perched on a knife-edge band also fully paved with brilliant round diamonds, this gorgeous jewel evokes the colours of a beautiful sunset.

Deco Darling Aquamarine studs, $12,200
One of B.P. de Silva’s best-selling jewellery silhouettes of all time is the Deco Darling ring, and now this timeless, versatile design inspires a pair of earrings for modern romantics—or the elegant boss lady. Its powerful geometric aesthetic is derived from the Art Deco era which favours straight lines and strong angles. That sleek halo of brilliant round diamonds alternating with baguette-cut diamonds highlight the crisp facets of the cushion-cut aquamarine centre stone of approximately 0.85 to 0.95 carats.
If you love this design but prefer it with another gemstone, keep a lookout on B.P. de Silva’s website this festive season for special releases.

Grand Lotus Diamond ring, $8,600
Representing peace, purity, and transcendence, the Lotus inspires this contemporary collection of everyday wearable jewellery. Taking cues from Mother Nature in creating the pieces, B.P. de Silva gave its lotus motif wonderfully organic curves akin to that of an actual lotus leaf. Its plush proportions symbolise abundance, success, and blessings. Brilliant round diamonds in varying sizes are set all over its surfaces, glistening like drops of clear water on a beautiful sunny day.
Instantly recognisable and perfectly timeless, the Grand Lotus Diamond ring looks amazing when worn with matching earrings.

High Street Diamond necklace, $6,800
An ode to the beautiful streets and charming architecture of old Singapore, the High Street collection pays tribute to B.P. de Silva’s very first atelier, which was literally a shophouse on High Street. We just love how the intricate filigree silhouette is reminiscent of Peranakan-inspired designs and are absolute fans of old mine cut diamonds, which are used as the centre stone of these elegant pendants. Each of the stone’s 58 facets are masterfully cut and polished by hand, and perfectly proportioned for an unparalleled glow by candlelight. Every piece crafted by band, this one is for the old romantics for sure.
Such an exquisite jewellery piece should definitely be worn on its own, and paired with matching earrings if you’re in the mood.

How delightful are these stackable gemstone rings? Crafted in every shade of gold and featuring coloured stones of all hues, from morganite and aquamarine to citrine and tourmaline, these are irresistibly fun to wear—talk about eye candy. B.P. de Silva infuses the collection with its love for Art Deco geometrical shapes by using Asscher cut gemstones masterfully cut by its lapidaries in Germany. Each gemstone is approximately 0.9- to 1-carat and bezel set to enhance the octagonal shape, and fitted to a knife-edge band.
Wear two or three on one finger to amplify the jewellery’s colourful persona.
