Of Earrings And Finger Rings, Limited Edition Handcrafted Jewellery From Sitaram Jewels

Have you noticed how Limited Editions are swished out with much aplomb be it books, apparel, jewellery, furnishings or even alcohol? Coveted and rare, why not? They deserve a special place, their acquisition and possession gives us a high. The Sandalwood Room takes equal pride in displaying handcrafted precious jewellery from Sitaram Jewels at their boutique store in Singapore. Jewellery that is elegant and contemporary, aimed to appeal to  the fashion conscious divas of Singapore.

A pair of exclusive Amethyst hoops style earrings from Sitaram Jewels. Amethyst the protective stone with a sobering and cleansing effect and in the world of gemstones it is known as the seductive stone for its unique colour.

Every piece of jewelry at Sitaram Jewels is unique and one of its kind, hence would qualify for limited edition at all times. In conversation with Lalit Palsani of Sitaram Jewels and Jayashree Mani of The Sandalwood Room, here is why the jewellery of the reputed traditional jewellers of Chennai stands out.

This pair of Beer Quartz and White Diamond hoop earrings pay a delightful tribute to the most lovely of beverages – beer. Elegant, stylish, classy and different!  Beer Quartz is a type of quartz that has a rich golden hue that is reminiscent of the classic beer.  A bit darker and deeper golden hue than that found in Citrine, Beer Quartz is a wonderful semi precious gemstone that complements most skin tones.

Sitaram Jewels begin by choosing a natural gemstone for its beauty and brilliance. But its the cuts that their expert artisans give the stone without altering its basic shape that brings out the beauty of the gemstone. With the gemstone now ready, the designs are built around it. A clear departure from the practice of many jewellers that fit gemstones into the designs. You see now why their jewellery cannot be replicated and is limited edition?

So what do you do when you get requests from customers to replicate jewellery that they have liked on their friend’s fingers or necks, we ask Lalit. He smiles and says, “well, it can get as close to the original as possible, but never the same”! Precisely why celebrities prefer to buy coloured diamonds like Coffee DiamondsTM from us, he says, for their attributes of being rare and unique.

These coffee diamonds are sourced from Australia the land that yields the best fancy coloured diamonds.

At Sitaram Jewels, a lot of R&D in jewellery has led to new ideas in the settings that encase the precious gemstones to bring out the best in them. The invisible setting and the no-claw setting have soared in popularity, Lalit tells us and since Sitaram Jewels is a trusted name built over years, their customers are willing to take the jewellers’ suggestions and they invariable come back for more, bringing with them family and friends.

A special mention of the rose gold ring below with a circular surface that makes a statement. Round, marquise, princess and pear-shaped Coffee DiamondsTM adorn the ring.

The Sandalwood Room has created a look book with some of their unique pieces in Citrine and Beer Quartz stunners and as Jayashree Mani would put it, ‘a thing of beauty speaks to you and lets you pick it up to make it yours’.

Clearly, the always limited edition of Sitaram Jewels jewellery is handcrafted for those that look for minute traces of beauty and exclusivity. Lalit Palsani says they are glad they partnered with The Sandalwood Room with its penchant for everything organic, natural and handmade. It gladdened him even more to see that every shelf of the lifestyle boutique store is filled with products that encourage traditional craft and artisans. Jayashree Mani at that point pitches in telling us that their tagline is ‘Contemporary Design Traditional Craft’. I guess that says it all.

The previous blog post had featured neck-chains and bracelets in “Colours Of Spring” again some master pieces from Sitaram Jewels.

Gemstone Jewellery ‘Colours Of Spring’ Inspired By Singapore

There are times when all you need is a simple piece of jewellery to perk you up. Or add that dash of elegance to your ensemble. Heading out for an appointment and rummaging for a neck-chain that will make a statement? Yeah, sounds familiar to all of us.

Just what you are looking for are on display at The Sandalwood Room. Enchanting and elegant, these handcrafted neck-chains and bracelets have been curated carefully for the fashion-loving Singapore.

The collection is named ‘Colours Of Spring‘ and is in a way an ode to Singapore with its colourful skyline and architecture, but I see this stunning precious gemstone jewellery range as one that can be worn throughout the year. Crafted by Sitaram Jewels in 18k gold, these chains are one of their kind, no two pieces are alike. Perfect for those fashionistas that seek exclusivity with a passion.

Tourmaline Necklace

Multi hued Tourmaline necklace

This is what we mean by colours of spring. Enough to brighten up one’s day, this multi-hued tourmaline neck-chain comes with some healing properties too. But before that, just take a keen look at the gemstones in the chain. None shaped like any other, each cut differently. Details like this make Sitaram jewellery so unique.

Tourmaline is an inspiring stone known to enhance tolerance and understanding besides detoxifying our bodies. We must all have one piece of jewellery with tourmalines in it since detoxification is the need of the hour. It relieves stress, increases mental alertness, improves blood circulation and strengthens the immune system. 

Amethyst and Aquamarine duo

Aquamarine and Amethyst necklace

Pair this pretty Amethyst and Aquamarine neck-chain with a white or a black blouse. Lovely, lively and romantic, the necklace seals the love forever. A note on aquamarine and amethyst’s healing properties :

Aquamarine, deriving its name from the latin aqua marinus (water of the sea), get its pale blue colour from the sparkling ocean ● clears the mind ● balances emotions ● instills courage ● dispels fear ● believed to have protective powers ● promotes self-expression ● promotes harmony in relationships ● aids better communication.

Amethyst, long considered a gemstone of royalty, it sure must be worthy of being the preferred gemstone ● a natural stress reliever ● provides spiritual protection ● aids inner strength and clarity of mind ● helps dispel negativity ● helps strengthen immunity and heal imbalances in the body ● attracts abundance.

Turquoise and Tourmaline neck-chain

Turquoise and Tourmaline necklace

Flaunt this dainty pop of pink and electrifying blue on a date or at a girls brunch. Pink tourmaline clusters and turquoise beads alternated for an elegant and modern look. I would even call it dramatic or sophisticated chic. And Turquoise heals as well.

Known as the Master Healer, it is said to be the bridge between heaven, sky and earth. Known also as a purification stone, it ● dispels negativity ● balances moods and instills inner calm ● stimulates romantic love ● heals the body of many afflictions ● helps prevent panic attacks ● promotes self realisation.

Peridot indulgence

I would wear this Peridot neck-chain every day. For one, I could team it with any colour and two, it is a positive energy gemstone passing on feelings of abundance and goodness. August borns, grab it, we are just in time.

Tourmaline bracelet

Bohemian elegance ? That says it all. A chunky tourmaline studded bracelet permeating all the goodness of the versatile gemstone. Refer the description of tourmalines earlier in the post.

Pristine Citrine Duo

This citrine bracelet at The Sandalwood Room stole my heart, capturing all the light around. Beatific ! The jeweller tells me this cushion shaped stone studded bracelet has been handcrafted using old world jewellery making techniques paired with new technology to preserve the art of handcrafted designer jewellery. Citrine and its healing properties :

Known as the happy stone or stone of happiness, it fosters ● joyful moods ● cleanses negativity ● fosters creativity ● aids clarity of mind ● energises body ● strengthens solar plexus ● enhances focus and will power ● brings hope and stability ● aids spiritual growth ● aids sensuality and sexuality ● promotes good health.

So thats the range of neck-chains and bracelets inspired by the colours of spring at The Sandalwood Room. There are more gemstone jewellery to come, ear-rings and finger rings in colours of spring !
