News alert: Designer Paul Syjuco just launched a new line of jewelry that starts at P12,800. The collection, dubbed PS ILY, is a reference to his initials. “PS also refers to the Latin post-scriptum, words written to end a letter before saying ‘I Love You’ or ILY,” he says.
The collection includes diamond-studded infinity pendants and bracelets in white gold to symbolize eternity to gold earrings shaped in Xs and Os, his ode to hugs and kisses.
His Infiniti pendant in white gold and diamonds, which retails for P12,800, is a delicate beauty, modestly sized and finely articulated. There’s an accompanying ring, also in white gold and diamonds, that sells for P26,000, ideal for those days you’re furiously typing out some report and need something shiny to ease the existential burden of having to work through a pandemic.

PS ILY is a collection which draws from concepts of affection. X’s and O’s for hugs and kisses. Time; which we invest in relationships. Hopes of Eternity and Infiniti. Even something for those who aren’t ready for commitment. Each PS ILY piece is made, meant to be given and worn with love.

Having spent most of quarantine crouched over my dining table like Gollum at a buffet, I’ve asked myself: Do I really need this Infiniti pendant in white gold and diamonds?
Does anyone need diamonds? No. Does that stop us from wanting them? Also no.
If nobody can see you wearing a diamond necklace in the forest, are you still wearing a diamond necklace? Let’s save the philosophy discussion for college sophomores who just discovered sativa.
“Jewelry has always been about self-care, self-expression and love,” Paul says. “It’s also given as gifts to mark milestones and life’s most important moments. This more minimalist line is designed for everyday wear. A contrast to the gravitas of my high jewelry line, PS ILY is meant to be playful, light and very accessible, yet smart and chic.”
