We are full of memories at The Sandalwood Room. We will miss you Prinsep Street. We will come back to sip coffee at The Curious Palette, to reminisce setting shop, making friends and soon having become a sort of a landmark on the street.

Our baby steps grew into long strides because you gave us a perfect location for our business. With Bras Basah MRT station, Dhoby Ghaut, Bencoolen Street, PoMo Mall, Selegie Road and Little India as our neighbours, tourists and shoppers alike strolled into The Sandalwood Room after lunch at The Red House, or on the way to Coffee at The Curious Palette, adding more shopping bags to their already full hands. We are grateful for that!

We have enjoyed providing shopping to the lovely people of Singapore as much as hosting events that have added value to their lives. Let us take you along our memory lane…..

The Sandalwood Room was launched on 31st July 2014, with a lot of passion for artistic creations and unique craftsmanship from different cultures. For all those that love to rekindle their artistic side now and then. For shopping of a rare kind.

Rendezvous – Hand Crafted Jewelry at The Sandalwood Room – Jonaki – 31 October

And if someone were to show me jewelry as unique, I would grab it. So here I am at The Sandalwood Room to check out if I can get a preview of the Jonaki line of jewelry.

Jonaki show

I have this thing about hand-crafted stuff for me and my home. It makes me feel special, it makes me feel I AM UNIQUE!

The Sandalwood Room’s Jonaki show is just in time. Diwali is round the corner, parties galore and I want jewelry that is fresh and original, to go with my ‘some-completely-Indian-ethnic- outfits’  and ‘some-indo-western’.

I had jewelry on my mind when I stepped in, but a browse around The Sandalwood Room, the Great Diwali Sale had multiplied my shopping bags. Stuffed with irresistible beauties for me and my family. Feeling sort of guilty for having over-indulged, my thoughts at the billing counter were to eject some items from the heap that lay between me and the desktop. But lo and behold ! I didn’t have to – I had earned some money! I was now entitled to the Diwali vouchers that saved me a cool $100!

The Sandalwood Room Diwali Voucher

I walked out with a spring in my step and made a mental note of spreading the word around to my friends. It’s a big high  when you got a deal or a bargain that none of your friends have gotten yet.”

We were thrilled to hear this from a customer all beaming as she walked out of The Sandalwood Room , her hands shifting shopping bags from one to the other. Our Diwali vouchers are aplenty, earn as you shop – $5, $10, $15, $20, $50, $100

Coming back to the Jonaki jewelry, which is not a part of the Diwali sale. It is an exclusive pop up show hosted by The Sandalwood Room for their discerning customers. Singapore, make a note of the date:

  • 31st October, 2015
  • 11 am and 8 pm 

A fine coming together of two enterprises that are passionate about handicrafts and the handcrafted – The Sandalwood Room and Nine By Thirty. Aparna Das Sadhukan, the jeweler behind Nine By Thirty likens hand-crafted jewelry to freshly baked bread. A subtle analogy that says a lot.

Every item of Nine By Thirty  jewelry has been inspired by a story of people around the jeweler, making every piece only one of its kind, never to be replicated. Nothing at NBT is sourced out, each stunning piece of jewelry is a product of the jeweller’s creativity born out of dreaming ideas. In the artist’s own words, ” Hand-making anything is fun, there is a certain thrill I feel each time I hand-make something ”

And so the magic of her imagination gets translated into such fine and never-to-be-found-anywhere-else jewelry.

Sample these

Hand-strung green Malachite and grey Labradorite, both polished on one side and left raw on the other, with sterling silver goddess pendants a la temple jewelry style.
