SOCIAL SCENE: West Coast gems
Heather Harrington Jones opened the doors of her exquisite Holetown jewellery store to specially invited guests for a showing of the latest collection.
The Canadian-born businesswoman has established a name for dealing in high-end jewellery in several countries.
Between sipping wine and savouring nibbly cocktail bites, elegantly dressed guests perused the showcases where lines such as Calgaro and Tagliamonte, with its handmade Venetian glass pieces set in 18-karat gold, were on display.
This is a boutique where lovers of fine jewellery are known to go for private consultations and to have their personal stamp placed on exclusive handmade designs selected by them.
In-house goldsmith Janine Banfield and other jewellers were therefore kept busy with enquiries and requests inside while outside, other guests savoured the ambiance of the evening under a marquee.
