Malaysian jewellery brands are so underrated. I mean, elegance, luxury, style – you name it, they have it. If you only purchase high-end jewellery, sorry to break it to you girl, but you’re missing out on a lot here. Malaysian jewellery brands aren’t only affordable, but also really stylish and aesthetically pleasing. There’s a jewellery item for every occasion.
Here are a few of the best homegrown labels you should get to know better:
THE STRAITS FINERY
Fine as heck! This amazing local jewellery brand was founded by Foo Chia Chern and Amira Yahaya. Specialising in 14k gold creations that are minimal, the brand’s jewellery is perfect for layering and stacking. If you love wearing rings on every finger and choking your neck with stacked necklaces, then you have to check out their collections. A wide range of jewellery that does not use stones – pretty rare for a jewellery brand – their designs are mostly geometric and scream subtle elegance, which is why you can be creative and stack them up however you like.

HOLY HELL! The collections from this brand are just GORGEOUS! VLT offers both daily wear accessories and fancy designs that are evening-appropriate. VLT, which stands for Vault, by the way, has two different sets of jewellery for both the minimal girls and the fancy ladies. The Essentia Collection is based on minimalistic chic, whereas the Prive Collection is more towards luxurious jewellery that have the power to elevate your look. Their jewellery collections can either be worn on their own (cause they’re freakin fabulous) or you can stack them up.
