A contemporary interpretation of our nation’s cultural diversity, the Heritage is fashioned after the iconic Peranakan tile. The intricate designs on the ceramic tiles features aspects of all cultures and old neighbourhoods from Chinatown, to Little India and Geylang Serai. Each depicting flora and fauna in motifs that imbue auspicious significance to the family whose house it adorns. The Heritage collection was designed to create relevant interpretations of important elements of our Singapore Heritage in the hope that these meaningful reminders will be handed down to future generations.
Heritage is Carrie K.'s first iteration of the customizable fine jewellery pieces inspired by Si Dian Jin, the Chinese ideal of four generations under one roof. This is exemplified in traditional Chinese architecture that features a four-pointed roof – each point representing a generation of bliss. This principle is also represented in the Chinese wedding tradition in which the groom’s mother gifts the bride-to-be four points of gold, symbolising a blessed union.
