This was created by Harper’s BAZAAR Singapore for Net-a-Porter.
At Harper’s BAZAAR, we firmly believe in standing out from the crowd with touches of luxury to every outfit. And nothing achieves this easier than a thoughtful curation of jewellery pieces. Not only does it allow you to accentuate your style affinity and declare who you are as a person, it also adds the perfect finishing touch to any look. Luckily for us, there’s Net-a-Porter and its generous selection of jewellery designs. Where else are you going to shop to your heart’s content and find that perfect piece (or two) at your fingertips?

1. CVC STONES
Wanting to commemorate the loose diamond that his grandmother gave him in a meaningful way, Charles de Viel Castel came up with the idea of setting it on a stone that he picked from the beach as a child—thus, giving birth to an artistic direction that has continued to aerate CVC Stones designs to this day. Founded in 2015, and handcrafted in New York, this label presents the beauty of nature with gems for organic creations that have been spotted on It girls like Alexa Chung and Sienna Miller.
2. SUZANNE KALAN
Imagine an embroidered work that features thick, coloured stitches; but instead of rustic thread, you have a glittering trove of gemstones and diamonds instead. That’s what Suzanne Kalan’s award-winning designs are like: Chic, with an irresistible off-kilter note that makes them natural standouts. It’s no wonder celebrities from Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez, to Jessica Alba and Sofia Vergara, have trusted the Californian brand and its custom-cut stones to make them shine.
Plissé-satin dress, about $1,413, Tibi. Leather bag, about $2,283, Marni. Gold and multi-stone earrings, about $2,310; white gold and diamond rings (set of two), about $5,841, Yvonne Léon. Gold, stone and diamond ring, about $4,185, CVC Stones. Gold Love bracelet, about $922; gold and diamond bangle, about $908, Jennifer Meyer. White gold and diamond cuff, about $6,807, Suzanne Kalan
3. JENNIFER MEYER
From chic letter pendants and wishbone rings, to daisy chain necklaces and “love you” ear studs, Jennifer Meyer’s eponymous jewellery brand was founded on an ethos that any modern sophisticate can get behind: To offer women jewellery designs that are natural extensions of themselves. Her highly stackable pieces are produced in Los Angeles and count Hollywood A-listers such as Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon as fans.
4. YVONNE LÉON
Combining her love for flea and vintage markets with her background in jewellery (she comes from a family of jewellers), Yvonne Léon’s creations run the gamut of quirky-chic animals to the more traditional Rococo designs–all delivered with an unmistakable Parisian sensibility. This is the label for women who love pieces that are as glamorous as they are fun; even better if they spark conversations and garner appreciative smiles from onlookers.
Viscose-blend top, about $1,057, Cushnine et Ochs. White gold and diamond ear cuff, about $1,476; rose gold and diamond ear cuff, about $1,476; rose gold and diamond Safety Pin earring, about $2,948, Anita Ko. Gold, pearl and diamond earrings, about $1,005; gold, pearl and diamond necklace, about $1,267; gold, pearl and diamond ring, about $652, Mizuki
5. ANITA KO
Los Angeles-based designer Anita Ko wants you to wear her jewellery, not keep it in a safe. And her versatile, contemporary designs reflect that belief. From dainty diamond-lined earrings that follow the curve of your ear, to classic diamond rings done with a small yet noticeable twist, her designs have been worn by a host of stylish celebrities including Amber Valletta, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Jennifer Lawrence, Victoria Beckham, Emma Watson and more.
You don’t have to be a lover of pearls to fall in love with this Japanese jeweller’s creations. For one, her sculptural, minimalist creations drip with urban modernity that will fit into any style-conscious wardrobe. Then, there’s her purposeful, clean lines that seem to transform the gleaming orbs into works of art. Traversing between New York, California and her hometown of Tokyo, this brand is for the cosmopolitan woman who takes pride in subtle resolution.
