Care for a side of red rhodonite with your profiterole? But, of course! Earlier this week, a flock of well-heeled ladies got just that when they gathered at Sant Ambroeus's Madison Avenue noshpit to fete Brazilian gem-smith Jack Vartanian's latest collection, Desire. (A fitting locale given that Vartanian's eponymous boutique neighbors the packed resto.) The new line, inspired by his model-wife Cassia, is chalk-full of luxe baubles, like a $6,500 18K white gold sparkler with light brown diamonds and black quartz, that guests were happy to try on between bites of the insalata di carciofi and the filetto di branzino with asparagus. The list of VIP attendees? Jennifer Creel, Alexandra Vidal, Shirin von Wulffen, Emilia Fanjul Pfeifler, Olivia Chantecaille, Marisa Brown, stylist Ann Caruso...the list goes on, darlings. After the luncheon, each lucky lady took home a monogrammed necklace, courtesy of Vartanian. J for j'adoring!
