ABOUT THE BRAND – Lustre

Lustre was founded by self-taught designer Anaita Thakkar, whose love for gemstones stems from her childhood days growing up in Bombay. Specializing in handcrafted, affordable pieces of jewelry made with unique semi-precious gemstones and crafted by gifted artisans in ateliers around the world, Lustre’s timeless jewelry collections are inspired by Anaita’s passion for travel and nature.

Each piece is made in limited quantities – and no collection is ever repeated. Her designs embody inspiration, confidence, and creativity for the modern woman, rather than slavishly following the latest trends. Lustre prides itself in embracing uncompromising quality whilst staying well below the $300 price tag, truly mirroring the tag “affordable luxury”.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER – Anaita Thakkar

“IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS. DO IT RIGHT, OR NOT AT ALL”

Born in India where yellow gold has been the fashion statement for centuries, Anaita Thakkar had a contemporary and rebellious love for gemstones and silver jewelry. At the time, gemstones and silver were mostly worn by students and bohemians, but Anaita knew they had greater appeal.

When she moved to Singapore and started a family, she found that while there were many brands that sold costume or crystal jewelry at inflated rates, none offered handmade, all-natural gemstone jewelry at pocket-friendly prices.

Anaita set out to create Singapore’s first brand that not only prides itself on staying within the $300 price tag but embraces uncompromising quality. Keeping her commitment to modest pricing and low overheads, Anaita chose an online presence rather than bricks-and-mortar. Although you will find her at local pop-ups in Singapore and Hong Kong. A self-taught designer, Anaita gives herself free-reign to break the rules and embrace her creativity. As a result, Lustre jewelry is classic yet completely original. After designing each piece, she works directly with the silversmiths to ensure their quality. She personally wears and tests every prototype to see if it pokes, scratches or needs any adjustments. Only when they are perfected does she have them produced in extremely limited quantities, fulfilling her vision of providing luxury products at modest prices.
