Beautiful and exquisite creations
Feb 2020
My friend introduced me to Jonathan Yun years ago when I first visited Penang and I have been a fan since then. I still have the pieces I bought back then. For good quality and unique jewellery, Jonathan Yun is the one to go to in Penang. I always recommend everyone (friends and strangers) to visit him when in Penang.

Every time I wear his pieces, I get people admiring them and good comments. Some people have commented that his pieces are not cheap. But if you are looking for something that is of good quality, reasonable value and exquisite, it is worth every cent. I would not say that he is expensive and not affordable. In fact his pieces are priced reasonably. Even if you have no intent to buy, just go and enjoy beautiful creations.

Great to visit again after 10 years
Feb 2020
My sister and I first chanced upon Jonathan's exquisite silver jewellery at the gift shop of the E&O hotel about 10 years back. We are simply delighted that he has now dedicated an entire shop to the heritage collection and housed his usual more contemporary collection in the adjacent shop. It was also a pleasant surprise to discover the collection of custom designed ladies wear from hand painted batik. Anyway, I had headed to Jonathan's with the purpose of buying a Peranakan-inspired brooch for a Japanese friend and I was not disappointed. On the contrary, I was spoilt for choice. Without any plans to buy anything for myself, I was happy to discover a pair of silver & diamond earrings of the peranakan star or bintang design - something I had always wanted but doubtful of finding as it's more usual to find the huge bintang brooch and I have never ever seen a pair of bintang earrings. To top off an extremely fruitful visit, I also found 2 lovely batik dresses which fitted me well. I will certainly return on my next visit to Penang and have shared my finds with friends who appreciate lovely well -made jewellery.

Incredible, beautiful jewellery
Jan 2018
Having seen some beautiful Paranakan jewellery on display at the Blue Mansion, when we saw that Jonathan Run makes replicas, we went to take a look. His jewellery is gorgeous. Aside from the replica historical jewellery, he makes wonderful pieces using sterling silver and natural semi-precious stones. The pieces are expensive, but beautifully made. Worth it if you enjoy jewellery and have the budget to indulge.

Fabulous designs, stunning jewellery, super friendly service

I bought a number a silver ring and some earrings from Jonathan when I visited Penang a couple of years ago. I was so impressed by his designs that I commissioned Jonathan from the UK to make my 50th birthday present from my Partner. He made a stunning ring, earrings and pendant in a 'coral' design in solid 18kt gold - all transacted over 'Messanger' from London and delivered to me by a friend whilst visiting France. I have had so many compliments from complete strangers who have loved the ring. Thank you Jonathan.

Gems , well-priced, honest
Feb 2017
This is a little shop off Penang's iconic Armenian Street and a stone's throw from the main mosque. It has semi-precious stones set in very unusual designs. You may meet the jeweller himself, a very personable, soft-spoken artisan who would be happy to design something for you too, if you have the time. Price should not be a concern as he charges very reasonable rates even for custom made pieces. This is the place to visit if you'd like a Peranakan (Straits Chinese) piece of jewelry that is modern yet traditional. He has also added jade to his range, so it is really worth a visit. I stumbled on the shop and jewelry after visiting Armenian street (on the right, and opposite the boutique hotel with a public carpark in front) and ended up spending a long time just browsing the collection before taking home a piece that never fails to draw comments.

Beautiful jewellery made to order - excellent service

This was my third visit to Jonathan Yun Jewelry. Previously I have bought some beautiful pieces from his in-stock items. This time I had some ideas from his facebook page and asked Jonathan to adapt and design some items for me (while I love his work, I am fairly conservative and the more striking pieces are perhaps too young for me). He had some great ideas and made two beautiful pendant & earrings sets plus a ring on very short notice. Gracious service from his staff as well. We are very happy with the pieces. I really look forward to visiting the shop next time I am in Penang.

After walking around Armenian St checking out the street art I spotted the shop front for Jonathan Yun across the street and I'm glad I did! What a fantastic find amongst the eclectic mix of shops in the Gerogetown area. Loved it so much I bought a piece from the coral collection. I want to make a special mention about the lady who was the sales assistant in the store. She was so helpful and went out of her way to provide a very comfortable environment in which to shop. So many lovely pieces on display, well worth a visit.

A welcome familiarity!

So wonderful to rediscover Jonathan Yun's artistic pieces of jewellery again. I used to stop by to buy a few pieces of Jonathan's jewellery whenever, I visited Penang.

It has been a few years since I visited Penang. So, I was rather disappointed when I couldn't find Jonathan in Armenian Street, thinking he must have moved on, as Jonathan is such a talented guy. Much to my surprise, whilst strolling along various places, I discovered Jonathan's shop. So wonderful to be reacquainted with Jonathan and to discover that he has designed so many wonderful pieces especially his vintage collection from the Straits Chinese heritage era. Looking forward to browsing and hopefully buying one or two pieces of your collections.

We finally arrived at the boutique after we alighted from the Hop On Hop Off bus. The guide told us to take a left when we should have taken a right. Once we finally found the small quaint shop; (yes, if you blink, you will miss it) we were pleasantly surprised. The reviews are correct. However, we had a certain 'budget' to work with so we would have liked to see all the jewelry pieces with price tags. It would have saved us a lot of time. We were helped by a lady but I don't remember her name. I was there on January 5, 2016. I purchased 3 pieces that I simply adore!!!! The lady from Singapore's review of this place is what sold me on this visit. I realized that once I landed in Penang I must visit this shop. Having said all that, the first stop for us was the Trishaw Tour, Metro Bike Easy Green with Jeffery. Needless to say we never met up with Jeffrey near Port Swettenham (Stop #13 on the Hop on Hop off bus) so looking for him and his business or 2 hours really put a slow drag on the beginning of our day, considering we only had 1 day in Penang.
