Inspiration | Taipei Collection
We draw our inspiration from our surroundings. Our Taipei Collection was inspired by our favourite areas in the city.
Sanchong is where our founder was born and grew up. On the outskirts of the capital, it is an area people from across the country come to in search of a better life. This eclectic mix of people is what makes the place so special. We love how different everyone’s background and upbringing, it is just like how all gemstones come together to create the beauty of mixture.

Zhongshan in Chinese is 中山. It is the area in Taipei that is still heavily influenced by Japanese culture, which colonised Taiwan for 50 years. Zhongshan since then has developed into the most prosperous area in Taipei. It can said to be the heart and soul of Taipei. What one can find here is passion, love and history.

You will never find a better sunset than Wanli in Taipei. Wanli is surrounded by mountains while having an 11 km coastline along the north east side of the Pacific Ocean – it takes practically no time to go from the summit to the beach. The spectacular combination of mountains and sea creates the magic scenery and fashions the most gorgeous sunset with such warmth and colour that only the stunning amethyst can compare.

The glorious yellow of citrine is as warming as the sunshine. Beitou is famous for its sunrise and hot springs. It was once the habitat of the indigenous group Ketagalen of Taiwan; Beitou is the Ketagalen word for the spiritual leader, who would have had their residence here. Now it is where one enjoys the healing properties of our most luxurious hot spring. It is spiritual, warming and brings beams of sunshine shine upon one’s face – just like the citrine stone.
