In an exclusive interview with CN938, the biggest radio station in Singapore, we had the privilege of sharing the emergence and journey of Hoseiki. From the genesis of this passion project to the global appeal of our collections, join us as we delve into the captivating tale of Hoseiki and its remarkable rise as a leading cultural trendsetter.
The Birth of a Dream
For Daryl and Chase, Hoseiki was more than just a brand - it was a dream fueled by a love for jewelry, a family legacy in manufacturing, and a passion for Feng Shui and readings. The duo recognized the potential of blending their expertise and creating something unique that resonates with the younger generation. As the stars aligned, Hoseiki was born, with Carissa, Chase's wife, with her certificate in Gemology, adding her expertise in sourcing and completing the team.
The name "Hoseiki" holds a beautiful significance, translating to "gem" in Japanese, representing the precious nature of their jewelry. What sets Hoseiki apart is its commitment to natural and precious stones, along with its 999 solid gold collection - a favorite among Chinese jewelry enthusiasts, especially millennials who adore the elegance and symbolism of yellow gold.
In addition, we saw a need to bridge the gap and offer a modern Feng Shui jewelry brand that not only celebrated tradition but also seamlessly integrated with contemporary fashion, enabling individuals to wear these cherished pieces confidently in any setting, including their workplace.
Hoseiki’s vision is clear - to combine the wisdom of Feng Shui and Bazi with our love for jewelry craftsmanship, offering exquisite pieces that resonate with both cultural enthusiasts and fashion-forward individuals. Our passion lies in empowering everyone to embrace their cultural heritage while expressing their personal style effortlessly, regardless of the setting.
At Hoseiki, we also strive to create value-for-money Feng Shui jewelry that not only enhances personal style but also assists individuals in becoming the best version of themselves. We take pride in offering customized jewelry, allowing them to carry a piece of their identity and destiny with them wherever they go.
Our dream is to enrich lives through our captivating creations, infusing each piece with profound meaning and cultural authenticity. As we move forward, we are driven by the joy of empowering more individuals to embrace their roots and elevate their personal style with the beauty of tradition and the allure of modernity.
Hoseiki is an embodiment of cultural appreciation, fashion expression, and the unwavering belief that jewelry can be both a style statement and a soulful connection to one's heritage.
Reviving Tradition for the Modern Age
