de Grisogono Holiday Luncheon

Holiday Treasures at the de Grisogono Luncheon – All For a Good Cause


Giovanni Mattera of the fine jeweler de Grisogono and The Colleagues president Alexandra Dwek teamed up Dec. 10 to host an elegant holiday luncheon at the Montage Beverly Hills.

From inside the hotel’s 9th floor conservatory dining room, against a sweeping view of the Hollywood Hills, the smartly-dressed luncheon guests perused the latest designs from the jewelry-maker whose gem-encrusted works have been spotted in recent years on such stars as Eva Mendes, Jennifer Lopez, Sharon Stone, Naomi Campbell, Heidi Klum, Celine Dion and Britney Spears.  

For a look at a sampling of the jewels, which are available at Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills, scroll down to the photos below. The Children’s Institute benefited from a percentage of sales.

Among those on hand were Lynn Booth, Stephanie Safran, Betty Hayman, Lauren King, Kathy Hilton, Larissa Sabadash, Irena Medavoy, Jacqueline Applebaum, Danielle Del, Carla Sands and Tawny Welch.
