At Carrie. K, we love telling stories with the jewellery we hand craft. No two stories are the same and that’s why we want to help you create something perfectly unique. Nothing is too outrageous - from births to birthdays, engagements, weddings, anniversaries, even reimagining heirlooms that have been tucked away for too long.
What's Your Story?
How Carrie K.'s bespoke jewellery creation process works
Consultation with designers
Every bespoke jewellery starts with having us unravel your story and understanding the vision for your jewellery, price points and design specifications. Be prepared for an introspective conversation about you and your loved one!
Sharing and deciding concepts
From the consultation, our designers will share sketches and concepts for your perusal. Once approved, we will cast a 3D model to give you a realistic preview of what the actual piece would look like. All final tweaks will be consolidated before we hand-craft your bespoke jewellery.
Hand crafting jewellery and gemstone sourcing
At this point we shall embark on handcrafting your jewellery. At the same time, our in-house, GIA-certified gemstone specialist will source for your desired gemstones to be set on the jewellery.
Though we couldn't bear to part with our hand crafted pride, we're more than happy to see smiles and even tears as our bespoke jewellery is handed over to their new owners, along with a certificate and a 3D sketch render. Talk to us to make the jewellery unveiling even more special. (we've even hand-delivered a ring just moments before the proposal!)
BESPOKE WEDDING JEWELLERY
A cryptic message of love that only the couple can decipher, the number of the flight on their first encounter, a metaphor of her heart of gold -- these are just some of the details we've helped distill into couples' proposal, wedding and anniversary rings. Let us capture your love into a bespoke wedding jewellery you'll wear for the rest of your life. Get inspired as you browse our wedding gallery.
Love at First Bite
The couple first met at a restaurant where the groom was the chef. The bite mark patterns underneath the ring reflect 'love at first bite'. Talk about an 'edgy' twist to an otherwise common diamond engagement ring!
The ring cleverly incorporates the numbers 368 into the design, celebrating the couple's eventful encounter of each other on Flight 368.
Star Anniversary Ring
Comparing the wife as an angel, the ring features the star diamond setting, just as the star is a representation of the angel in the Bible. The ring also incorporates a total of 17 diamonds to celebrate the number of years together.
With the couple both born in the year of the Rat, this design entwines two metals, just like two tails and people coming together. The main 'gem' is hand-carved from gold as an alternative to a flashy gemstone.
The ring features a hand-picked birthstone, emerald, designed to her desired art-deco style. A running joke between the couple inspired a princess carriage on the design: the bride was well-to-do but the groom was a backpacker. As the roles changed over the years, he became the 'princess'.
Give your treasured family stories a new lease of life; if you have an old piece of jade, diamond or jewellery passed down through the generations that you’ve kept locked away because it is too dated, the Heirloom Revival service will bring it out of storage. We reimagine your family heirlooms as modern, stylish and symbolic jewellery pieces that evoke the memories and emotions you shared with your loved ones.
Whether it's honouring your loved one's legacy or adding on an extension of yourself to an heirloom, Carrie K.'s heirloom revival service will help you preserve your family stories, ensuring the next generations will always remember and keep your legacy.
To commemorate our customer's mother whom she describes as the life of every party, we reset the latter's classic jade pendant into a ring with the former's favourite amethyst gems in a fireworks design -- a befitting metaphor for someone with a larger-than-life exuberance.
Heart to Heart Earrings
Our customer had wanted to reset her mother's jade brooch, which she wore close to her heart, into versatile earrings. The reset earrings feature the heart-shape jade piece, but also reveals a metal engraving of the word heart in Chinese (心) when flipped backwards.
Rock & Fire Pendant
Our customer wanted to keep close a seemingly non-precious volcanic rock passed down from her father, whom she attributes as her 'fire' and 'rock', so we designed a pendant and wrapped the rock in a typographically-designed cage that spells out both words.
Featuring diamonds from the pendant of our customer's mother, we created a new ring and reset the gems over it. The typographically-designed ring spells out NAK, an affectionate nickname that the mother would lovingly call her by.
North Star Necklace
Resetting the jade passed down from our customer's mother, we chose the North Star as the inspiration for the design, as she had wanted to wear a pendant as a symbol of direction.

1. Measure your fingers at the end of day as your finger size will be different at different times of the day.
Fingers tend swell up during the course of the day as your blood pressure rises.
2. Measure your finger size 3 to 4 times to get a more accurate measure.
3. Your fingers might also swell if you are pregnant or if you are on medication. Take this into account when measuring your fingers.
Here are some tips on how you can measure your finger:
First, cut a cardboard strip measuring 0.5cm wide and 15cm long.
Then, wrap the cardboard around the finger to be sized.
Once it’s done, slide the cardboard up to the knuckle, as the ring must be sized large enough to able to slip off and on, over the knuckle.
Next, use a pen to mark on the cardboard where the long end overlaps.
Measure the mark from the end of the length of paper or string with a ruler.
Locate your ring size by locating your measurement against our size chart.
Should the measurement falls in between two sizes, we recommend that you choose the larger size.
