The newest jewellery shop on Serangoon Road wows with elaborate gold, baby bling and a live video shopper
It’s a glittering stretch of shophouses along Serangoon Road where the biggest brands names in traditional and contemporary Indian jewellery compete with each other for your attention. The competition maybe tough, but new entrant, GRT Jewellers (a well known brand in South India) are confident that their 4,800 square feet and two levels of shophouse space will soon be wowing customers with their gold, silver, diamond and platinum jewels. GRT’s designs are both traditionally Indian and even modern and contemporary.
The display cases are packed with bangles, necklaces, rings, earrings for men, women and even children (yes mama, they have baubles for babies, too!). We spotted everything from intricate Indian bridal necklaces with peacock motifs to delicate gold ear tops for a baby’s first piece of jewellery.
Jewellery for adults begin at $150, while the gold butterfly-shaped earrings for little ones we had our eye on were $98. They have a carefully curated range that has been brought to Singapore specifically, but GRT’s network of 38 stores across Asia (including their massive flagship outlet in Chennai) boasts a huge variety of designs, all of which are available for your pickings via GRT Live.
For discerning mamas who are looking to invest in some sparkle, let the GRT staff know and they will source some of their best pieces worldwide. You can even take a look via GRT’s Live Video Shopping experience. Not your average webcam situation, their’s is a high-quality video conferencing where we could actually chat with their designers in Chennai, ask questions and take a look at a handful of jewelry pieces that were hand-picked just for us — think of this as a virtual personal shopper.
GRT Live is available via appointment at their Serangoon Road store, but busy mamas can even request for a link to be sent to them via email, and you could be buying jewellery at home in your pajamas, with a glass of wine in hand. Sounds good to me!
