[ADV] Jooix: Ultimate gift-site and accessories mecca
Thursday, 18 Oct 2012
In our book, nothing stands in the way of a lady and her jewellery.
Whether we spy it on the streets of New York, in French Vogue, or even on TV, we’ll battle everything and a tiny fortune on international shipping to get to it.
But thanks to one clever (and well-accessorized) cookie, we can now allocate our international shipping funds to – rejoice! – more shopping.
Online boutique Jooix brings in the world’s most coveted labels, including brands which are new to SEA – these guys have got an impressive portfolio! There are plenty of shiny baubles to ogle over, but there are also unexpected surprises: Parisian teatowels by ParisCheri, the celeb-crush clutches of Tila March by former fashion editor Tamara Taichman, hand-woven Picasso cushions by Jules Pansu, the most divine scented candles from Laduree, and even handmade toys by Moulin Roty for the littlies.
Bauble fans, go wild in this jewel jungle, starting with Kendra Scott. She works with Oscar de la Renta for their runway collections, is a regular on CNBC, and has celeb fans like Eva Longoria and Katherine Heigel – both known for their sophisticated, impeccable taste.
We’re personally most excited about KONPLOTT (launching in 3 weeks), a handcrafted jewellery line by designer Miranda Konstantinidou, that’s garnered worldwide attention in international mags. She’s even worked with Karl Lagerfeld! Getting married, going to a ball, or – boys, we’re always thinking of you – just need a failsafe apology present? Then you need Nina Nguyen, a Florida-based jewellery designer who uses semi-precious gemstones and 22k plated gold in all of her handcrafted designs.
To ease your jewellery-laden guilt, check out the selection of luxe Laduree candles, which are great as housewarming gifts. Our favourite is the Othello candle that smells of smoked black tea flowers and comes in a hand-painted, re-useable black China porcelain pot with gold letterings. Gorgeous and smells good? We’re sold.
Fair warning: you may enter the site with the best of intentions (i.e. buying a gift for a girlfriend or an upcoming kid’s birthday), but even good intentions can’t resist precious stones. Order 2 sets or risk going empty-handed.
