    The Story of Kim Thành Jewellery

    The plain façade of Kim Thành Jewellery belies its interior. But ring the bell: you’d do better finding your pot of gold here than chasing the rainbow’s end! A virtual see of well-known golden gold—called yellow—and white. Here’s a filigree ring. A pair of adorable enamelled ladybug earrings (!) set in gold. An Art-Deco-inspired bib necklace.

    Gems are part of the picture, too: ruby, jade, blue topaz, iridescent opal, black pearl. There’s a discreet cross with blue sapphire and tiny diamonds. A voluptuous rose-shaped ring in delicate gold—yellow, white and pink—is set with minute zircon crystals. Splurge on your spirituality. Worth more than $2,000 is a black jade pendant of the lady Buddhist enlightenment-being, Guanyin.

    Co-owner Tina Kiu is the business head; her husband Sunny Nguyen is the meticulous craftsman, casting exquisite one-of-a-kind pieces. Something unique? Nguyen will make a precious bijou from molten gold, following your particular esthetic. A treasure, indeed.
