We have a deep love for natural gemstones.
Our passion is handcrafted quality, personal pieces that are as unique as you are. We believe jewelry must be genuine and last for years to come, but still be affordable. We do not support synthetic material or mass production, but like to work with local craftsmen of gemstone cutters, silver and goldsmiths to spread the economic benefits for a wider population. We also believe in environmental sustainability by re-using precious materials and treating the complete supply chain ethically by providing good jobs for the talented craftsmen and women.
Design of Gems was founded by Karoliina as a result of working in Yangon for over three years and falling in love with the beautiful natural gemstones found there. She consequently decided to change the direction of her career and completed Fine Jewellery Design, new metal and traditional metalsmithing programs at Jewellery Design and Management School in Singapore.
The first collections - MyDesign and Pansodan - were crafted in Myanmar in order to provide the community good job opportunities and outlook for the future. Further pieces will not made due to the current situation in the country..
MyDesign of Gems is registered Precious Metals and Gems Dealer under the Singapore Ministry of Law.
