When one of our most beloved and classic jewelers, joined by PaperCity magazine, hosts a swanky holiday fête, you can be certain all our social gems turned out. So it was when Tenenbaum & Co. — purveyor of exquisite estate and fine bijoux since 1976 — literally rolled out the red carpet, as well as a show-stopping party tent complete with velvet ropes attended by a pair of door men who rigorously checked the guest list. The evening was billed as “Tickled Pink” in deference to its show-stopper: an 18K pink-gold ring boasting a 6.65-carat pear-shaped diamond — a natural, fancy, light-brownish-pink stone with VVS2 clarity, GIA. Presiding over this splendid bauble bash were the Tenenbaum & Co. owners, Tony Bradfield and Kevin Black, joined by founder Louis Tenenbaum and his wife Kim. Tony’s restaurant poured bubbly, mixed cocktails fueled by Roxor Artisan Gin and passed bites, while the crowd perused the velvet-lined cases brimming with dazzling vintage and classic creations by names we know and love: Tiffany & Co., Cartier, David Webb, Van Cleef & Arpels, Buccellati and more, spanning the Edwardian period through Art Deco, on to today.
