Amee Philips is renowned for her jewellery designs in top quality gemstones. Our designer collections are on show at our galleries in the Unesco world heritage city of George Town, Penang, and Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. If you can't come personally to our galleries, browse our website and order on-line, or if you send us your ideas, sketch or brief, Amee will personally design jewellery specially for you. For those captivated by the beauty of gemstones we have an extensive collection of loose quality gemstones suitable for beginners, improvers or expert connoisseurs. Our award winning 'Versatile' collection of interchangeable pendant and earring jewellery is ideal for those who want to change style on the move, and is ideal for presents. Our collaboration with New York fashion designer Zang Toi has created beautiful collections in Zang's own style.
Amee's journey in gemstones began in Europe in 1992 by sourcing gemstones for sending home to Malaysia. When she returned to Malaysia in 1993 she started a gemstone wholesaling enterprise, initially selling gemstones shop to shop, later opening an office to service the many small jewellery factories in Penang. Many years of looking at gemstones 10 hours a day trained her eyes to recognise good colour, good cutting, authenticity and market value. The Asian economic crisis of the late 1990's slowed the wholesale business, but she was already diversifying into jewellery design, manufacturing and retailing, opening her first gallery in 1999. In 2005 she invented a pendant clip which can open to allow the pendant to be changed, and, the same pendant drops can be used with our earrings too. (see The Clique Collection) Annually, Amee judges an Asia wide student jewellery design competion linked to The July Malaysian International Jewellery Fair. In 2011 she started a collaboration with New York fashion icon Zang Toi, 'Zang Toi Precious jewels by Amee Philips', to create jewellery for his twice yearly New York Fashion Week runway shows. In 2013 Amee's jewellery was chosen to be featured in the Rolls Royce Enthusiasts Club Luxury Handbook launched at The Dorchester Hotel in London.
