Established in 1979, Ho Bee started out modestly in a small rented corner in a factory situated at Balestier, with only two craftsmen. We expertise in handmade gold jewellery with crystals. By then, we already had up to 100 of our very designs for earrings, necklaces, pendants, rings, bracelets and brooches. Our designs were unique and catered specially to customers in a multicultural country like Singapore. This earned the support of many customers, especially the Indians and the Malays.
As our popularity grew in 1984, Ho Bee expanded its business and moved to the heartland of Singapore – Toa Payoh. Not only did our creations earn the liking of the locals, they had also caught the attention of our neighbors in other countries. We started wholesaling our jewellery, exporting them to countries like Philippines and Indonesia. With great success, we further established partnerships with reputable jewelers from countries like Italy, Turkey and Taiwan, bringing in other excellent products into Ho Bee.
In 1990, Ho Bee had its first factory set up in Malaysia, acting as a one stop solution for the manufacturing of quality jewellery. Right from the designing, molding, casting, soldering, polishing till repairing, our experienced craftsmen did everything by themselves. We constantly developed new product lines to keep up with the ever changing trend, dedicated to satisfy the needs of the fashion savvy customers.
Ho Bee further expanded its retail business to 3 outlets located around Singapore. We continued to provide an extensive range of exquisite gold jewellery to our multicultural customers. They include jewellery made of 925 silver and also 14K, 18K, 20K, 22K, 24K gold.
In 2004, we acquired an additional machinery and started manufacturing machine-made jewellery like rope chains and wheat chains.
