A ‘Pearler’ occasion with a diamond or two thrown in.
Kailis Jewellery showcased their ‘Luminesse’ collection of pearl and diamond jewellery amidst the stunning images of Michella Cruz (Penelope’s cousin) created by U.K. based photographer ‘Rankin’.
Australian owned Kailis Pearls are world renowned with the Kailis family holding 30% of the world’s pearl leases. The very amiable designer of this collection of pearls, diamonds and white gold, Simon Henderson, related to us his life long passion for jewellery design and his long connection to the Kailis family.
Australia’s Next Top Model winner Tahnee Atkinson made her debut appearance on Sydney’s social scene wearing a stunning Kailis necklace and a red Alex Perry one shouldered number. Carla Zampatti along with Sally and Jack Singleton perused the glass cases of luxe designs while the gold fish happily did laps of the fishpond.
The always delightful fashion editor Trish Trail-Nash excitedly told us of her impending move from the Sun Herald to Grazia magazine as trays of delicious nibbles found their way around the room.
The very generous gift of a gorgeous Kailis pearl for the ladies and Kailis branded cuff links for the guys overwhelmed at what was a very stylish and well orchestrated event.
