The Lovesong of Stones and Us

One of the benefits of a diamond is to contrast other stones.

Almost perfect how the color ‘enjoys’ the cut.

This is what a ruby sapphire corundum looks like. Can you see the blue in the red? It is really quite amazing Nature knows exactly how to.

While most aquamarines are blue, this one is greenish blue. This is chosen for how the green cradles the blue, in a triangular cut that manifests its color.

Two aquamarine rings, one old and one modern, all natural stones. The distinction in blue and greenish-blue is evident.

Gold as an alloy is not usually revealed to the customer but we like to. The difference in the color of yellow and white gold is not as great as you think. The subtle color is what we want, yellow or white. Enough of adulterated, shiny gold.

No prongs for the heart. The fairest heart (VVS) and simplest setting.

As more and more jewellery come our way, our eyes have grown accustomed to variety. In reality we have grown weary – is it silly to suffer from a case too much ‘design’?

The jewellery arm of our business is now called the Singapore Island Jewellery Store.

Our name change coincides with a deeper change inside us. The reflection within goes something like this: we want to use our curiosity and knowledge of stones to set them in jewellery impossible to replicate, not so because of design but because the stone speaks to us, so interesting, so rare.

We will go out of our way to locate a stone, and it will crawl its way into your heart. Like it has ours.

It’s almost a lovesong, the story of stones and our reflection in them:

“If you don’t know me by now, you will never never know me.”

Introducing Singapore Island Jewellery Store.

We are getting our small asses together to sell ourselves better.

Still no good? But of course.

Dear loyal friends and customers, please bear with us while we put changes through our jewellery website. You’ll see that price categories have moved conspicuously, the jewellery increasingly ‘ethnic’, but most of all, we are moving to include everyone.

Hold thy chariot.

The art of growing old encompasses the ways we appreciate art. It approximates the circle of life.

Some things our eyes would glaze over once now take precedence. It starts like a lingering, then a longing, finally a living out. Of course the living out always feels… unlike anything in the imagination.

The circle of life.

If you have been staying here with us, you are probably growing as we do.

It’s inescapable.

Love letter to individuality

I could be a lamp… I could be a sculpture… I could get outside… I could be me.

Not a day older than you, each said. Bullshit, the other replied. The secret to aging is… cooking… a good soup.

The quiet of dark and light and no middle.

Waiting… for the day a heart settles small and deep.

 

Part I and when I get to II I will show you how to wear a long pendant, with a short necklace or two. Or three.

The art of looking present is harder to achieve when the goal is invisibility.

Times of wont.

 

The Falcon and the Dream Scales are in Art and Objects.

It is that time of late night and early morning, raining heavily as I write, and I am listening countless times, as I have been these few days, to the Chromatics version of ‘Ceremony’. Makes me feel like I am not 2015 in living. You know?

But I don’t know.
