For starters, you should look for bespoke jewellers like La Putri with vast experience, knowledge, design capabilities and personalised service – all the qualities that you’d need when customising jewellery.

A Couture Jeweller With More Than Four Decades of History and Experience

Known for their exceptional quality in fine gems, innovation, inspirational designs and unparalleled personal service, couture jeweller La Putri was founded in 1973 by Madam Wan Ming Chin. As a first-of-its-kind jeweller back in the 1970s, La Putri first started out as a humble home business where Madam Wan shared her love of fine jewellery with friends and family. Soon, the business flourished and set up its flagship shop at Ampang Park Shopping Centre in Kuala Lumpur. Today, La Putri is helmed by Madam Wan’s two daughters who brought the brand to our shores in year 2000, and continues to offer its customers the same exquisite quality, one-of-a-kind designs and personalised bespoke service the brand is recognised for.

More Than Just a Bespoke Jeweller

What You Need To Know About Precious and Coloured Gemstones

What truly sets La Putri apart from other jewellers is their vast offering of coloured gemstones, pearls, jade and innovative designs. Although they do carry and offer diamonds, La Putri is known for their wide variety of coloured and rare gemstones such as the Paraiba Tourmalines that may not be widely available elsewhere, and creative designs that stand out against run-of-the-mill creations.

The world of coloured gemstones is exceedingly interesting and varied as compared to diamonds. Sure, there is no denying that diamonds are pretty, classic and still the preferred bling for most. But with so many different types of gemstones, colours and intensity available for your picking, the possibilities of fashioning one-of-a-kind jewellery with a coloured gem is endless, even within the same family of stone!

Don’t worry if you’re new to coloured gemstones; La Putri’s in-house designers will gladly introduce and ease you into the world of coloured gems and show you their unique beauty. They’ll also share that although the quality and value of a coloured gemstone is determined by the purity, intensity and degree of saturation of its colour, you should not make your selection based on the stone’s perceived value and quality. Rather, you should choose one that speaks to you on an emotional and personal level in spite of its perceived value and quality.

One-of-a-Kind Jewellery That Belongs Only to You

Sourced from all over the world, La Putri’s collection of gemstones are of the finest quality and affordably priced, each unique in its own way, which makes your bespoke piece even more special because there is only one of its kind. But the charisma of bespoke jewellery and precious gems lie not only in its uniqueness, but in its emotional and sentimental value.

At La Putri, customers get to see the raw piece of gem before it is set and made into jewellery. They get to marvel in its raw beauty and appreciate nature’s handiwork even before it is transformed into a sentimental piece that speaks of how much their loved one means to them and the amount of work and thought taken to craft it into a wearable piece of jewellery. And of course, since it was created with a specific someone in mind, it is a representation of who they are as an individual.
