In more ways than one, gold is who we are.

As Singapore’s leader in gold jewellery for 70 years,
we’ve always believed that machines cannot replace the human touch in the creation
of fine jewellery. Crafting, polishing, assembly - nothing goes amiss when you have
the stroke of an artisan’s hands and the scrutiny of his eyes.

Our dedication to quality is why every piece of Poh Heng jewellery comes to bear
the lion’s head logo - Singapore’s hallmark for gold purity certified by the Singapore
Assay Office (SAO).

We do this because among all that we have to offer,
Nothing is Quite As Precious As Trust. This is what makes us gold.

Our Milestones

As with all success stories, Poh Heng Jewellery began
with a dream. The year was 1936. 16-year-old Chng Tok Ngam left his home in China, seeking his future in the new
land of promise—Singapore.

He started as an apprentice at his uncle’s
goldsmith shop and that was his first step
into the world of fine jewellery.

The Inception


Then the significant turn came. Together with
his father-in-law Lim Tong Buan, Tok Ngam started
Poh Heng Jewellery. “Poh” means “precious”
in Mandarin while “Heng” means “luck” in the
Teochew dialect.

Poh Heng’s first store opened at 691 North
Bridge Road. From day one, Tok Ngam held
one business philosophy: Trust was the key
to success. With this belief came a solid reputation
for integrity and honesty, and Poh Heng
soon prospered.

These gold hair pins that decorated the
popular “bun” hairstyles of the time
were also, we believe, used by the
ladies to “poke” some sense into overly
ardent lovers.


Poh Heng, the first jeweller to
venture into shopping malls, opens at
People’s Park Complex. Till today,
it remains as one of Poh Heng’s flagship stores.


Expansion continues and Poh Heng
becomes the first major jeweller to make
its way into housing estates, inching closer
to the hearts of Singaporeans.
