What: IW Marks Jewelers holiday fête

Where: The Bellaire home of the long-established firm

PC Moment: So much to shout about on this dazzling evening — unveiling of the newly-designed store, festive party balloons and sparkling trunk shows by Mattia Cielo and Suzanne Kalan. The latter jetted in from home base in Los Angeles to personally greet the celebrants on this evening and welcome customers the following day.

Kalan’s custom-cut gemstones set in 18-karat gold and dramatic diamond designs are popular internationally. IW Marks is the only Houston jeweler to carry Cielo jewelry.

Genial hosts Joanna and Brad Marks tapped Tony’s, their favorite restaurant, to cater the luxe party.

PC Seen: Hanna and Cal McNair, Grace and Sean Kim, Michael Yafi, Paul Doyle, Amy Haymond, Jana Phillips, Ashley Anderson, Judith Brown, Jennifer and Todd Hoffman, Amy Hammond, Wallis Green and Mary Ann Bullard.

Home, chic home.
