Chanel: It’s Not Just Gold, It’s Beige

Categories:Jewelry & Watches


When you think of Chanel’s colour beige, you would typically picture their compact powder cases that bear the sandy, powdery hue we’ve all grown to know and love. A colour much loved by Coco Chanel herself, it was the colour of her quilted suede cushions, and also a colour she used liberally at her Rue Cambon boutique. A gorgeous neutral that does not overpower and best described as the shade between pink and yellow, it naturally led to the French luxury label creating their own precious alloy back in 2014 that’s still exclusive to them today; it’s simply known as Beige Gold.

For days when you find the traditional yellow gold too jarring, white gold far too plain, or even rose gold being too pink (yes, I’ve heard that before), Beige Gold is that perfect in-between too hard and too soft, a beautiful neutral like no other. Perfect for the lady who prefers to carry off the accessory (instead of letting the accessory overpower her), Beige Gold would be that colour of choice. Besides a selection of Coco Crush fine jewellery that it comes in, this subtle, glimmering hue is also now found on a selection of Chanel’s fine timepieces as well.

The perfect colour that surrounds the mother of pearl or opaline dials on the timepieces, Beige Gold carries a certain charm to it, with Coco Chanel declaring it one of her favourite colours saying, ‘It’s my colour and will always and forever be fashionable.’

And with timeless watches encased with Beige Gold crowns, from the Première to the Boy.Friend and even the masterpiece that is Monsieur de Chanel, let it be your colour of choice and one that you’ll find exclusively at Chanel Watches & Fine Jewellery today.

Baselworld 2017: Rolex reveals its popular Cosmograph Daytona watches in gold

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

At the ongoing Baselworld 2017, Rolex has introduced three new versions of its Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona line. It was just last year that the watchmaker refreshed their popular Cosmograph Daytona line of watches by launching the ceramic bezel design. And now Rolex has released the Cosmograph Daytona with ceramic bezel in 18-carat yellow, white and Everose gold. Joining the ranks of the Yacht-Master, the new models are fitted with the innovative Oysterflex bracelet in elastomer reinforced with a metal blade, and are equipped with a monobloc Cerachrom bezel, patented by Rolex, in black ceramic.

On the inside, the watch remains the same and is equipped with calibre 4130, a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement. The movement is accurate to +2/-2 seconds per day and has a 72-hour power reserve. The crystal face of the timepiece is virtually scratchproof sapphire and the 40mm-wide oyster case which is crafted from a solid block of 18-ct gold is waterproof to a depth of 100 meters (330 feet). The pricing has not been announced by Rolex as of yet.

Saint Laurent Monogram Earrings

Categories:Jewelry & Watches


If Gucci’s next season is all about 80’s decadence, then Saint Laurent’s Spring-Summer 2017 Monogram Earrings is about disco glam, with new Creative Director Anthony Vaccarello introducing these beauties that can be worn separately, or better yet together to form the French luxury house’s iconic monogram. All made as clip-on pieces, they will come in a variety of materials, from gold-tone brass covered in crystal rhinestones to another pair in black ruthenium and distressed gold brass.


Priced from SGD660 a pair with the ones with rhinestones priced a little higher, these statement earrings are also guaranteed head turners, and quite literally, the only piece of jewellery you need to accessorise with on any given day.


But if you want to go all out, this Monogram jewellery collection also includes a smattering of brooches and rings, which like the earrings are sold as two separate pieces that can be worn together. In the case of the rings, separate fingers, of course. Also priced from SGD660 for the rings all the way to SGD1130 for the rhinestone earrings, you’ll just have to wait a little longer before they are launched at Saint Laurent Marina Bay Sands and ION Orchard in January 2017.

Balenciaga Leather Bracelet Update 2016

Categories:Jewelry & Watches


Affectionately known as the ‘poor man’s bracelet’, and only because the ones from Hermès are many times more expensive, Balenciaga leather bracelets are also everyone’s starter bracelet (it was mine back when I was a wee lad), something affordable that came in many colours, finishes and lengths. Over the years, of course, some styles were dropped, new ones were added on, and walking into a Balenciaga boutique recently, I realised I recognised very few.

In other words, it was time for an update.

Quickly scanning through Balenciaga online, this is what I got. There are at least 6 different types available now, and they vary from single cuff style bracelets to those you can wrap around the wrist several times (also known as the Triple Tour). Besides contending with the ones in seasonal colours, they also come with hardware in different colours. There’s Classic Gold, Classic Silver and just the Classic (which I’m assuming is the hardware that comes looking blackened and burnished for the aged look).

Then there are those that are differentiated by the size of their studs, namely theGiant Gold series. Besides the fact that the studs are also bigger, they also come detailed with a grid-pattern on them, like an etching if you will.

Rounding up today’s selection are the newish ones known as the Classic Metallic Edge, which look as if they are ‘outlined’ on the leather bracelet (see 4th and 5th rows). Available in single or triple tour combinations, these are also the most ‘showy’ of the lot, good for those who want their #wristbling to go a longer way.

Best thing, they are all available online via Balenciaga, which now ships to Singapore. Prices are in USD, shipping costs will be extra, so gather a few girlfriends, pick a few and share on the charges. #happyshopping
