Officially established in 1872, B.P. de Silva's rich heritage can be traced back to the 19th century when the Founder, Balage Porolis de Silva, set sail from Ceylon and travelled across the world before settling down in Singapore to open the first B.P. de Silva Atelier. B.P. de Silva has served an esteemed clientele for over 150 years, including the crafting of commissioned jewels for royal families. Five generations later, the independent luxury jeweller remains amongst the most time-honoured brands in Southeast Asia, known for engagement ring and bridal jewellery designs, masterful craftsmanship, and genuine service. B.P. de Silva's vision is to create elegant time capsules of the best stories and values that people can pass down. Part of its efforts towards becoming a more thoughtful brand includes working towards a more traceable supply chain first beginning with responsible gemstone and Diamond sourcing; working with partners that abide by a Code of Conduct which promotes positive, healthy, and safe working environments; it has also begun its journey towards crafting its ready-to-wear collections in Fairmined Gold.
