The Peranakans are known for their unique - a fusion of sorts - costumes, jewellery and traditions such as their elaborate weddings and Chinese New Year. Since the 90s, exquisite Peranakan jewellery has been an important part of their traditions and a symbol of wealth and status. Baba Bling celebrates their culture and love for jewellery with over 300 pieces of exquisite jewellery and heirlooms from Perankan families and private collectors, both local and abroad, in this exhibition. Also, visitors will learn how their traditional jewellery were made from the various tools used and the changing styles of its craftsmen.
Children can request for special embossing stickers at the museum counter and have fun embossing different Peranakan designs on the stickers to bring home as souvenirs. Others can design their own electronic jewellery for sending out e-cards at multimedia kiosks available inside the special exhibition gallery. For more information
