Suki (pronounced as soo-key) is a Manila-based contemporary fine jewellery brand that aims to create a modern framework for individuality, created by husband and wife Aaron and Shar. Embracing the constantly evolving elements of day to day life, the main purpose of the brand comes from the drive to create simple, straightforward, and liveable luxury.The brand strives to unite their highly wearable pieces with your own personality at accessible prices, without compromising quality.

Suki believes in quality, transparency and individuality. Coming from a third-generation family of jewelers, whose business has been around for decades, Aaron has been exposed to the ins and outs of the industry - from sourcing raw materials, to design conceptualisation, production, purchasing, and even retail. With their own production located at the heart of fine jewellery manufacturing in the Philippines, they meticulously design and handcraft their jewellery, to maintain a high standard of quality pieces. Their products are proudly handmade by their skilled goldsmiths and stone setters, whose skills have been honed for over a lifetime. Suki designs are created exclusively with 14k and 18k solid gold (not plated or gold filled) and only with good quality natural diamonds, pearls and lab-generated gemstones.

Shar and Aaron's vision is for every Suki girl to have her own piece of jewellery that is not handed down or given to her as a present. They want you to go after the things you want and not wait for things to come to you. Having their own in-house production for Suki means that they are able to help you do just that by making their fine jewellery accessible at a fair price. Suki wants you to go treat yourself because you can and should!
