Tiffany & Co.
Tiffany & Co’s distinctive blue boxes and six-prong diamond ring setting have been the subject of women’s fantasies for over a century. The Tiffany Setting ring is unparalleled. Thanks to its impeccable design, the six-prong setting disappears under the brilliant diamond. While platinum is a classic, rose gold is a touch more modern, while the yellow is perfect for traditionalists.

The timeless cuts and refined silhouettes are perfect for brides who adore elegance.

Lee Hwa Jewellery
Lee Hwa Jewellery is where you’ll find Forevermark. Beyond the 4Cs, these diamonds are responsibly sourced and unique – only 1% of the world’s diamonds are marked with it. Another signature diamond to have is Destinee. These have an incredible brilliance thanks to the precisely cut 57 facets (instead of the usual 58). By excluding the bottom facet, what you’re getting is a diamond that does not lose any light. Couple this with its signature white and rose gold bands.

Besides timeless engagement rings in white or yellow gold, Poh Heng also offers an entire range of Si Dian Jin – a customary four-piece set of precious gold jewellery that is given to the bride by the groom’s mother.
