Before turning to jewelry, Sukamto honed her design prowess and knowledge as a fashion stylist in London and New York City. Her multinational upbringing including Indonesian, French, Filipino, and Chinese heritage inspire her aesthetic. Sukamto finds beauty in the imperfect, and her work reflects this philosophy. She gravitates towards colorful gems, especially the glorious emerald, as it is close to her heart. Her father gave it to her mother when they were dating, and now she wears it on a necklace. Additionally, the emerald, a soft gem, has imperfections in even the finest stones. Sukamto only uses the highest quality materials and natural gemstones, including Australian opals, Tahitian pearls and Thai sapphires and rubies. Uncommon and elegant, Sukamto pieces radiate glamour with cosmopolitan spice.
