Calla Lily’s bejeweled masterpieces are unlike any other, perfect for those who are in the market for jewellery that they can truly call their own
Perhaps the first thing one will notice from Calla Lily’s jewellery creations is that there is always an element of surprise – from the most intricate of details and unexpected kinetic features to the selection of brilliant coloured gemstones.
This holiday season, we shine the spotlight on the bespoke fine jeweller’s one-of-a-kind creations, as well as unique readymade pieces. Not only are they festive and fabulous, they make for perfect heirlooms with the combination of quality craftsmanship and identity.

“I move quite easily from minimalist and subtle to highly ornate, inspired by the complex twists and flows of nature. However, where we end up always depends on the client and what best suits them,” shares Emily Tan, Calla Lily’s founder and creative lead.
