The Rare Opal
Touted as "the rainbow of the world", the opal is a symbol of love, hope
and fidelity. With its status as a favoured gem by royalty, the opal is a
distinctive gemstone that is unparalleled as it is unlike any other gem found
in the world. TSL celebrates the
iridescence of an opal that simply enchants the eye of the beholder, making it
one of the most iconic gemstones found in the world as the uniqueness found in
an opal is that it illuminates under different lights and from various angles,
thus creating a cascading and brilliant spectrum of colours that would rival
the most beautiful skies around the world.
Making its debut in the world and specifically in Malaysia, TSL Jewellery
is most delighted to present this tantalising collection, after two years in
its artisanal workshop from conception of designs to final execution. Where the
natural beauty of the opal meets the modern-day craftsmanship of jewellery
making, the black opals are procured from Australia's Lightning Ridge, which
are incredibly rare and cherished for their vibrant hues and complex,
Designed by famous
French jewellery designer, Isa Parvex, TSL's Radiant Plumes celebrates the brilliant iridescence of an opal. The
intersection of the rarity of opals and outstanding design, the pieces in the
collection are prized for the naturally artistic detailing of the opals. The Radiant Plumes Black Opal Ring (left) which features the
incredibly rare bright red black opal from Lightning Ridge, Australia, in which
TSL's expert craftsmen and artisans took a diligent amount of time to produce
such an awe-inspiring piece. The Radiant
Plumes Boulder Opal Brooch (right) enchants with its shimmering pattern,
putting its beholder under a magical spell.
They are set in a similar style
that would enrapture the attention of many with its iridescent patterns limned
in the opals. Much like the allure of a woman, each opal holds a beautiful
mystery that is enchanting and beguiling.
Each opal is
selected by an expert eye and remains naturally untouched. TSL's Radiant Plumes are nestled in a diamond
band of meticulously constructed plumes that resemble the feathery plumes of a majestic
bird, aimed to accentuate the asymmetrical design of the opal that will rest
graciously on its wearer.
A masterpiece of expert craftsmanship and
innovative designs, the Radiant Plumes will
astound as it enchants the eyes of the beholder with its out-of-this-world
spectrum of colours that are extremely rare and fit to make a blazing statement
in all of its enthralling splendour.
A tribute to the independence of women
today, The Explorer Black Opal Pendant brings
you on an unforgettable voyage. This expertly-designed pendant is an allegory
to the cosmopolitan woman. The Explorer perfectly
depicts the beauty and magnificence of opals from the Australasian region in
its full glory that revels in the uniqueness and charisma of the modern day
The Explorer is a reverent icon of TSL's collection
that is set to draw the eye to the majestic hues of blue, green and yellow
limned in the opal.
A quintessential example of impeccable
craftsmanship, the exquisite teardrop opal
is encased in a 2mm diamond belt studded with 667 small diamonds, which
requires extreme precision from the jewellers, giving The Explorer an exquisite yet refined finish. The Explorer Black Opal Pendant is secured by a nautical-inspired
top knot that houses a mechanism that allows the
pendant to showcase a dual front, thus, offering an encompassing 360° view of the gloriously lavish opal. The
Explorer presents itself as the epitome of luxury and elegance, paying
tribute to beautiful and strong women who are stunning in her natural self and
yet courageous in the face of adversity.
The Tourmaline & Paraiba Tourmaline Collection

aficionados as much as TSL Jewellery's Tourmaline
& Paraiba Tourmaline collection which boasts some of the grandest and
most luxurious pieces ever made by the esteemed artisans of TSL Jewellery. The
pieces in the collection are expertly designed and curated to evoke a spectrum
of emotions, creating the perfect foundation for a boundless love story.
The glorious combination of multicoloured
Paraiba Tourmaline gems is a bold play-on-colours that is set to enrapture the attention of jewellery
mavens in an utterly hypnotising spell. The collection features a pair of
distinctly regal earrings: The Duchess, the magnificently strung
necklace: The Fascination and The Crown, elegance personified in the
form of a beguiling necklace.
Captivating the eye with its vibrant neon blue
and lively red pink hues, this pair of Paraiba Tourmaline and Spinel Earrings,
aptly known as The Duchess continues to fascinate and beguile admirers
from far and near.
Reflecting design inspirations from the 16th-century English aristocracy, the
divine pairing of the two exceptionally rare pear-shaped, blue-green Paraiba Tourmaline (weighing 15.45ct) and brilliant red Spinel (weighing
9.6ct) gemstones, connected by a round cut diamond, The Duchess
immediately stands out for its rarity, bold pairing and distinctive style. The
Paraiba Tourmaline, aptly known as the King of Tourmaline, tells a majestic
story with its evocative and romantic design and it is incredibly rare to find
a matching pair. Outlined in brilliant round cut diamonds, the shimmering play
of light cleverly enhances the intensity of each of the central stones,
revealing the ingenuity and elegance of the amazing pair.
Carefully curated and hand‑polished to magnify their radiance, TSL has been
particularly attentive to the consistency and vivacity of colour to the
luminosity and depth of the gemstones to achieve a perfect colour match when
The Paraiba Tourmaline and Spinel are
certified with International Accreditation Agency DSEF, High Value Assurance.
The Crown Tourmaline Necklace displays a dazzling gradation of beautiful hues
paying homage to the beauty of tourmalines in all its nuances, beauty and their spellbinding effects.
The Crown as the
name suggests, draws design inspirations from the famous Crown of St. Edward circa
1953. The association of gemstones and their gradient transition
of colours from green, yellow, and orange to coffee-coloured diamonds and white
diamonds totalling over 156.371ct have been carefully selected by TSL's expert
artisans to create this haute joaillerie piece.

technical skill that not only bring out the natural beauty of the gemstones but
one that gives a three-dimensional aesthetics to the necklace.
ensure the pieces' suppleness and flexibility, each gem is carefully attached
with a special technique where the process requires agile and skilful hands as
many parts must be combined together to create this theatre of elegant play of
colours and gemstones, forming an elegant lacework that not only sits well but
caresses the skin.
This feat can only
be achieved by the transmission of a skill and an eye through decades of
experience, a true reflection of the committed flair of the TSL's owners and
craftsmen whose skills come together to celebrate the beauty of the tourmaline
gemstones that offers a constant delightful feast to the eyes of any beholder.
Evoking serene shorelines and treasures of the
expansive marine life, TSL lets its gaze wander to the paradise beauty of the
horizons in Marogogi, Brazil. The
manifestation of the ever-changing seas has captured the artisans' imagination
leading to the beautifully constructed necklace, The Fascination Tourmaline
and Morganite Necklace.
The awe-inspiring symphony of green Tourmaline gemstones and pink morganites are carefully composed and secured by a diamond belt,
to create a dazzling marine-life palette likened to the masterpiece of nature.
Profoundly expressing the excellence of the
TSL's refined craftsmanship, this necklace, made without a single claw, recalls the luxuriance of skilful
artisans polishing the gemstones only slightly to preserve its original shape
and beauty, while using an innovative, sophisticated mosaic technique to bring
the undulating lines of delicate diamonds around the surface of the gemstones,
showing the most perfect side of jewellery.
The end result is
then carefully re-examined to guarantee that it meets the TSL's stringent
criteria for quality and finish.
The Heritage Collection
1971, TSL plays ahead of curve to the values of creativity, designs and
craftsmanship. A worthy reflection to its identity and artistic
characteristics, the Heritage
collection is a testament to the vibrant and multifaceted history of TSL jewellery
decades of know-how whilst, mixing innovation with immeasurable panache. This
collection is the hallmark of TSL's reputation as one of the pioneers of fine jewellery
craftsmen in the market, where yesterday's demand become today's classic.
The Papilio Clytia
Happiness is like
a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but with ingenuity and skills, TSL allows the permanence
of this happiness to become a reality.
One of the
earliest innovations of TSL, The Papilio Clytia Diamond Brooch is the brainchild of intricate construction of jewellery and
incredible precision in this masterful craft. Enchanted by the fairy-like
beauty of the papillon, The Papilio
Clytia was designed with a clever automated spring mechanism that allows
the wings to flutter. Imagine the dainty
little being, resting prettily on your floral blouse likened to a living shimmering
butterfly playing hide-and-seek among colourful flowers.
When they say,
love is like a violin, the music may stop, but the strings remain forever. TSL
turned this into a reality and beyond by creating a breathtaking beauty that
tugs at the heartstrings of its wearer forever.
proportionate to a real violin, the magnificent Violin Diamond Brooch requires a technique so intricate and refined
even down to the specifics of the violin lines. The fine gold strings were
sophisticatedly wired by hand where each string was made with melting gold
nuggets and moulded into effort-consuming thin lines. The strings are then
fitted onto a head of a piano to ensure they work. It was no small feat considering this was
achieved with the limited technology made available in the jewellery industry
of that time.
Set in a gemstone-studded body and a
multi-layered design aesthetic, The
Violin puts TSL at the forefront in the jewellery-making world, combining
skilful craftsmanship and technical know-hows of its artisans bringing about
superior mastery in all its creations.
The iconic Bicycle Diamond Brooch
is TSL's way of paying tribute to the history of Hong Kong, reflecting a time
when the bicycle was the main mode of transportation in the city.
Reflecting the economic
scenario of Hong Kong in the 70s, TSL has breathed a new soul to this diamond
encrusted jewellery. Built proportionate to a real bicycle, The Bicycle Diamond Brooch comprises a
unique moveable mechanism, where the wheels are powered by movement. Pinned on the wearer, the three-dimensional
wheels of the bicycle will turn in accordance to the movements generated by
walking or even the slightest touch of a breeze.
This fascinating piece of art, imbued with
jewellery and magnificent technical excellence truly signifies TSL's accustomed excellence of its artisans.
of true love takes a lot of time and acceptance. The collection is inspired by
the multi-faceted romance between Tommy Tse, Deputy CEO, and his beloved wife,
Mrs. Annie Yau Tse, Chairman and CEO of TSL Jewellery. As they are both
virtuosos in their own ways--Tommy seeks inspiration in astronomy and the dazzling
star-studded skies and Annie is a talented violinist who enchants with her
musical prowess--their love story is beautifully reflected in TSL's 100-facet Estelle Diamond with the unique nine
hearts and one blossom pattern visible on the crown.
designs of the Estelle Collection
deeply reflect on its meaning -- Estelle
literally means "shining star" in Spanish. With 100-facets and the
exceptionally outstanding "Nine Hearts and One Blossom" pattern, the Estelle Diamond bears a fitting name as
the most brilliant innovation in diamond jewellery creation, displaying an
enticing pattern of nine perfectly symmetrical 'hearts' and a solitary
'blossom' that is visible on the crown. The result of this is a stunningly unique
symmetry of a fiery luminescence with peerless scintillating beauty.
The Estelle -- Meteor Light collection
features genuinely rare masterpieces made of 18K white gold. The Meteor Light Diamond Tiara (left) makes
its glorious premiere in the collection as the first tiara in the collection,
and the Meteor Light Diamond Bangle
(right) is a signature of TSL's outstanding and meticulous craftsmanship.
Made of the
brand's flagship Estelle diamond,
the majestic pieces simply epitomize creative breakthroughs in design and
craftsmanship. They provide stunning displays of textures and sparkle while
giving off an aura of grandeur.
The Guardian Star
Another striking piece that highlights the
beauty of the Estelle diamond is the Estelle
-- Guardian Star Diamond Necklace. Exquisitely simple and elegant, the
necklace consists of a 3.09 carat Estelle
diamond at the heart, secured artfully with a diamond chain with dozens of 0.5
