NM Celebrates Forevermark’s Exceptional Diamond Collection!
May 12, 2015
Diamonds were the sparkling stars at a unique event at The Joule Hotel in Dallas to celebrate the Forevermark Exceptional Diamond Collection and the partnership between two brands. NM President and CEO Karen Katz and Forevermark CEO Stephen Lussier hosted cocktails and dinner for 40 VIP guests, including Forevermark designer Maria Canale, as elegant as ever wearing pieces from her bespoke collection; Town & Country style director Stellene Volandes; and Bali Parikh, CEO of Diarough NV and an expert in the art of sourcing exceptional diamonds.
After champagne and Texas-inspired bites on the hotel’s terrace, guests were ushered into the private dining area, where two long white tables were surrounded by vitrines holding an array of responsibly sourced Forevermark diamonds in a variety of cuts and sizes—one measuring an astounding 23.06 carats. Following dinner and remarks from Katz and Lussier, Canale described the experience of designing the 2013 Fantasy Gift, which included the journey of the diamond from mine to design studio in the De Beers Tower in London. Guests were invited to touch the raw diamonds and try on finished pieces. The collection was transferred (under heavy security) to NM NorthPark, where Canale met with clients one-on-one.
