My eyes light up when I see jewellery. My wallet would like to believe it’s all science – that it’s simply the sparkle of the gems reflecting off them. But I know better. I know it’s love. The way my heart skips a beat every time my eyes light up is all the confirmation I need.
I have been a magazine journalist for eight years, and found my specialisation as a jewellery writer and editor in the latter four of those years. I knew I was hooked during my first major trade fair (Baselworld 2013), when I acted like a kid in a (very expensive) candy store; I wanted to keep making rounds of the booths long after my compatriots begged to stop. The adage “do more of what you love” sounds like really good advice; this site is simply my attempt at heeding that advice.
While the digital medium allows my content to be global and largely unbound to specific geographical regions, I divide my time between Singapore and Stockholm. Expect a slight bias, especially in the News section, towards relevancy to these two cities or the regions they are in (Southeast Asia and Northern Europe).
