A new brand of pearls has arrived on Singapore's shores. Local jewellery brand Lee Hwa Jewellery has brought in Yoko London, a luxury brand of pearls owned by gem company Euro Pearls and whose base of operations is in Britain.
Founded in 1973 by Mr Mehdi Hakimian, Euro Pearls now supplies pearl jewellery to more than 70 countries. The Yoko London range includes pieces with South Sea pearls, Japanese cultured pearls and Chinese freshwater pearls.
Its pieces have been worn by British singer Pixie Lott and were displayed at London's Victoria and Albert museum's Pearls exhibition last year.
Yoko London is available exclusively at Lee Hwa Diamond Promenade at B2-58 Ion Orchard. Prices start from $1,058 for a Tahitian pearl pendant.
