When the fall hits in New York City, it doesn’t matter if the weather still feels like summer, the mood always shifts with the storm of events surrounding Fashion Week. The jewelry calendar is not as crowded as the clothing one, of course, but there are a lot events day and night. A couple of the fun parties were Cartier’s Precious Garage and the soiree for Of Rare Origin at the folk art filled loft of designer Leslie Tcheyan. In other jewelry news, we enjoyed the story and video going inside Tiffany’s Salon for the Super Rich. We were interested in the report of the new CEO, Helen King, at Van Cleef & Arpels. And we loved the background piece on our friends at For Future Reference. See links to everything below.
