Lapis lazuli. When I first saw this gemstone, I was captivated. It is a deep, royal blue and naturally flecked with gold. Look closely and you can see a starry night. Once I saw it, I just had to get my hands on it. No wonder it was highly prized by Egyptian kings and queens, and in the Orient.
Precious. Royalty. Starry night. The East. Aren't these the elements of the story of the three wise men from the East, who followed a bright star to find the King?
Like most grandmothers, Hup Yee, is good with her hands. The jewellery she crafts are elegant, timeless and oh-so-chic.
