Diamonds, precious gems and fine Ceylon sapphires—to discerning clients and jewellery connoisseurs, these are what independent luxury label B.P. de Silva Jewellers are best known for. This month, it launches its newest ready-to-wear collection, comprising three styles of necklaces, two styles of earrings and a one-of-a-kind ring that fully embodies the brand's ethos, and honours the concepts of human connection and family ties.
For a start, the Lovedrops collection was co-designed with fifth-generation scion and creative director Shanya Amarasuriya as well as design manager Khek Yin. Both designers were situated in New York and Singapore respectively and took over a year to bring the collection to life despite the distance between them.
The collection marks a new beginning for the jewellery brand as the first that Amarasuriya has helmed creatively. It is also rooted in a simple concept: to showcase how the love that surrounds us has the ability to bring magic to life. Characterised by its intrinsic designs, each piece is inspired by true love stories.
For designers Amarasuriya and Khek, it also stands as a testament to their dream of creating a nostalgic collection despite the distance, making use of three-dimensional printed casts to better visualise the pieces before finalising on a sophisticated collection that weaves in the vintage charm of the old world as well.
