Yinn Ooi is making waves in the industry with her brand, Gung. Her stunning demi-fine jewellery pieces are not only beautiful but also empowering. Yinn’s goal is to build confidence in women by offering them exclusive and regal pieces of jewellery that make them feel like queens. From bracelets to anklets and rings, there’s something for everyone. On our radar are the Gung Iconic Gold Chain Necklace and the Curb Chain Gold Bracelet with Love Pendant.
The name “Gung”, which means “Palace” in Chinese and Korean, reflects this idea perfectly.
Yinn draws inspiration from the people around her and loves the idea of bringing joy to people through her stunning curation. Her designs are not limited to women and include pieces that are versatile for both men and women. You can trust your Gung jewellery to be your everyday companion for any occasion.
Yinn’s background in Interior Design also plays a role in her work. She believes that designing a space is just as important as designing jewellery. Her retail store, designed with her close friend, is a testament to this belief.
Yinn’s bubbly, charming, and enthusiastic personality shines through in her work. It’s no wonder that she’s gaining attention for her beautiful message and designs. Her unique and empowering approach to jewellery design is sure to inspire women around the world.
