Now that I have a new phone, I am hoping my husband Dennis would consider the Jewelmer pearl earrings in my Christmas wish list. I spotted the stunning pair at the intimate gathering of Jewelmer Joaillerie at the Rigodon Ballroom of the Peninsula Manila recently.
In a full-blown Parisian theme, the affair celebrated over three decades of history set in panoramic views of Paris on digital scenes. Throughout the evening, several images of the most beautiful city in the world were delighting the elegant patrons as they enjoyed the delicious menu prepared by the hotel. Accompanied by the finest French champagne, Veuve Cliquot, the grand soiree was transformed to an evening in Paris as homage to the brand’s French identity.
For some VIP guests, a customized Rolls Royce Wraith was prepared for their service. Upon settling down, a touching video presentation was shown entitled, ”A Journey to the Extraordinary” that was dedicated to the men and women who have made Jewelmer Joaillerie the internationally renowned brand it is today. It was a return to their roots, so to speak – bringing together the best of French and Filipino cultures that are at the heart of Jewelmer.
Hosted by Issa Litton, the program featured the world premiere of Jewelmer’s new corporate video that shares the story of the brand’s journey since its inception in 1979. The launch of Jewelmer Joaillerie’s 2016 Spring Summer Collection shortly followed with a French-inspired presentation featuring 11-year old Tessa Tordesillas who opened the show. Daughter of my cousin Maritoni Rufino and Roque Tordesillas, my niece Tessa was named after me!
Jewelmer’s latest collection was presented through an elegant show where Filipina models wore designer Edwin Tan gowns. VIP guests like Johnny Litton, Daphne Osena-Paez, Tweetie De Leon-Gonzalez, Solenn Heussaff joined me at the dance floor as we danced the night away with big band music provided by the Amp Band.
A thanksgiving for the past and homage to a continuing tradition of excellence and beauty, this year’s gala is yet another memorable milestone in Jewelmer’s impressive journey. Events group ODV Creative headed by Owee Cruz mounted the grand affair.
