Luscious greenery was the backdrop of Richard Gere's Old Bedford Post Inn. Here, on a July weekend France's oldest jeweller, House of Mauboussin, launched their new line. As guests, including discreet jewelers and indiscreet buyers, put on the jewels, each new style was introduced with a poem written by CEO, Alain Némarq (formerly of YSL.) He gave a description of the pieces and a description of the woman wearing it. The glimmer of one orange amethyst ring had me listening to what kind of woman he envisioned wearing this one (which I would) . . . "for the liberated woman with passion." What do you think?
