A Pocketful of Gems
After sailing all over the world with his pocketful of precious gems, our Founder launched the brand Singapore in 1872. Even in his original selection, he always had a curation of fine Ceylon Sapphires. Today, with over a century continuing his cherished legacy, The B.P. de Silva Gem Library presents one of Singapore's most expansive selection of Sapphires.
The Queen of Sapphires:
A Natural Padparadscha, a Hallmark Gemstone of B.P.'s.
Gem Specialists at B.P. de Silva invest in selecting the world's finest and rarest jewels. Our hallmark gemstone, the Padparadscha, a sunset-hued variety of corundum (the mineral family of Sapphires and Rubies), is incredibly rare — a queen of sorts in the gemstone world, and incredibly sought after by collectors and jewellery connoisseurs.
