Having been in the jewellery business for over four decades since 1973, La Putri is thrilled and has specially collaborated with trusted international partners in the jewellery trade to curate the sophisticated vintage showcase from 12-16 Jul 2019, 11 am – 8 pm at La Putri’s boutique store located at #02-15 Mandarin Gallery, 333A Orchard Road, Singapore 238897.
In the 19th century, most vintage pieces were carefully, intricately handcrafted by skilled artisans with little machinery. Going beyond just looking beautiful, vintage jewellery are true pieces of art and exquisite craftsmanship that are hard to find today. These vintage pieces represent a bygone era of jewellers who perfected the art of handcrafted jewellery. Like much of La Putri’s collections, each piece is one-of-a-kind.
La Putri is particularly skilled in creating designs which allow for versatility of use, such as earring designs which transform from classic day-wear studs to glamour dangle earrings for the evenings.
In the age of mass-produced jewellery, vintage gems are prized for their individuality, style and masterful craftsmanship. Each piece embodies the spirit of the 50s, 60s and 70s, and carries with them the unique heritage of each era. More than just timeless style piece, vintage jewellery are also investment pieces than can transcend time, and be passed down for generations to come. With the value of gemstones, gold and craftmanship of vintage measured against the higher production costs of today’s jewellery, savvy buyers can pick up valuable pieces at competitive prices worth much more than their current selling prices.
To the untrained eye, differentiating true, valuable vintage from low-karat gold, or machine-made pieces that do not carry much value can be difficult. When buying vintage jewellery, it is essential that buyers visit reliable sources. Every vintage piece at La Putri is strictly inspected and guaranteed to be genuine and authentic.
