The Singapore Tatler Ball 2019 Bling Report: The Best Jewellery And Watches Of The Evening
When it comes to dressing up for the Singapore Tatler Ball, it's always all about the details that make the difference. With the "Chinoiserie" theme setting the tone for the magnificent occasion, we sussed out some of the most sophisticated bling in the Grand Ballroom at Capella Singapore that made a statement among the 320 prominent guests in attendance.

1/8 Bvlgari icons
Jewellery pieces from Bvlgari stood out the most at this year's Ball. Among the handful of guests who wore spellbinding bejewelled creations from the Italian giant, Fanty Soenardy's necklace, bracelet and earrings sparkled the most, as well as Serene Chua's Serpenti Tubogas watch and Grace Chong-Tan's Bvlgari Action! choker, which is new from this year's Cinemagia collection. Bvlgari also showed how popular it is among the millennials and Generation Z as we spot the likes Carmen Ow and Adeline Teo decking themselves with the Serpenti earrings that sport the iconic hexagonal motif.

2/8 Hublot timepiece
Anthony Yong's recently acquired Hublot MP-05 LaFerrari watch stole the spotlight with its bold silhouette, sparkling aesthetics and innovative approach to watchmaking. Not only does the watch boast 11 series-coupled barrels, which give it a power reserve of 50 days, it has also been gem-set with a copious number of diamonds on its yellow gold case. The watch with its Ferrari-centric inspiration and styling is in line with Anthony's pet hobby of cars and motor-racing. Recently, Anthony even met up with Hublot's chairman Jean-Claude Biver in Singapore, and was offered a personal guarantee of lifetime warranty for this watch by the watch legend.

3/8 Exceptional gems
This year's Community Service award-winner, Caroline Low-Heah, wore an exquisitely crafted Dior Joaillerie ring and a customised diamond choker from Flower Diamond. "The gems on the necklace took one whole year to source for!" said Caroline, which speaks to the rare and bespoke quality of the piece.
4/8 Going goth
Sonia Ong, daughter of Award for Style recipient Nancy Ong, completed her look with a pair of goth-inspired earrings to match the medieval prints on her Etro skirt. After searching high and low, she was relieved to find them at Dolce and Gabbana at Ion Orchard.

5/8 Heritage jewellery
When asked about her jewellery during the evening, Susanna Kang shared that her pieces have been meticulously acquired over the years, each with a heritage story to tell. From her earrings to a bejewelled pagoda clutch from Judith Leiber, we say she nailed the night's theme with bejewelled pieces that feature a mix of vivid colours like how traditional tutti frutti jewellery creations should be. In fact, they even complement her green contact lenses!
6/8 Bring on the bling
Yvonne Chua's Patek Philippe Nautilus timepiece caught our attention with its white gold case and bracelet, which have been fully set with glittering diamonds, and went wonderfully well with her sparkly ball clutch.
7/8 Return of the hair clip
Hair accessories have been dominating the runways this year and Doris Lu's Versace hair clips added a glamorous touch to her elegant get-up.
8/8 Gilded Age
Newly bought from her recent trip to France, Peggy Jeffs' Gucci ring added to the gold ensemble of accessories, which showcased an immense amount of detail in a nod to the Chinoiserie theme of the evening. She also brought along a gold and mother-of-pearl clutch, which stood out against her red embroidered dress for all the right reasons.
Here are the rest of the best that we spotted at the Ball. All we can say is that the Tatler crowd sure knows how to enjoy and appreciate all things lustrous and sparkly.
