Damiani Hosts a Sparkling Cocktail Party, Glittering with Celebrities & Diamonds!!

Damiani, a world reknowned name in fine jewelry– finely crafted, uniquely designed jewelry featuring diamonds and colored stones– held their annual Oscar cocktail party at the Presidential Suite at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel on Thursday 2/21/2008.
This truly gala event featured not only models walking around showing off luxe pieces of jewelry to the guests but museum displays of phenomenal designs that were so gorgeous and so amazing that the women could only sigh in envy and diamond-lust and men sigh in relief that they weren’t in a store!

This party was in celebration of the unprecedented 18 Diamonds International Awards, that Italian jewelry house, DAMIANI, has been given and is known around the world for its extraordinary designs and exquisite craftsmanship. The Damiani name has become synonymous with spectacular diamond jewelry designs and is favored by international celebrities to wear to special occasions like Gwyneth Paltrow, and Brad Pitt.

many guests were still there till well past midnight. The suite was packed with people from suits to extremely luxury including furs and– of course– lots of diamond jewelry.

Giorgio and Silvia Damiani, who represent the third generation of this jewelry dynasty, flew in from Milan to host the elegant evening; enjoying the company of their celebrity friends as well as members of the international press, stylists, and many guests ftp, high society and film & television.

Stylist Barbara Palmer, Anne-Marie Otey and I were there for the event and it was stellar for the great drinks (a full bar and Bellinis were the favored cocktail of the night) along with served canapes and a buffet of more savory bites for guests to nibble on. The rooms were packed with people– it was so full it was hard to move around in the main rooms. The smaller rooms had less people but also held jewelry displays for people to admire.

On our way out of one room, there was a rush of people and noise.. sort of like a huge intake of breath and in walked Sharon Stone. Less than 4 feet away from me, Ms. Stone looked every inch the movie star in an gorgeous orange gown complimented with a beautiful diamond necklace. The Italian press were very much in evidence — along with other news outlets– and so Ms. Stone graciously gave serious time to the media and provided thoughtful answers to many questions including about gifting jewelry.
Now that’s a real star sighting! Now if there were more events like that — Hollywood would start to feel like the film capital of the world again!
Thank you to Wendell Figueroa Ruiz for all his help in quickly getting me photos!!
