The first De Beers flagship store in Singapore opened with 200 of Singapore's elite in attendance to view one-of-a-kind haute jewelry creations especially flown into Singapore for the occasion.

Mok wore the De Beers Pear Collar, a dazzler of 678 matching pear shaped diamonds totaling over 122 carats. To complement the Pear Collar, she also wore the Cocktail Fizz earrings and a five-line ring made of woven lines of diamonds.
