I had the pleasure of being invited by Bulgari to their party on Tuesday night, displaying the jewels of Elizabeth Taylor that Bulgari had bought back when they were put up for sale at Christies. Just seeing the famous iconic jewels brought back all the memories of hearing the lovely and torrid stories of the love affair between Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor and how he always wooed her and wowed the world with the jewels he bestowed on her.
Adding to my enjoyment was seeing all the lovely photos of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton in their youth and in the prime of their love passion and beautiful looks, most of them taken by my friend Richard Young.
Afterwards the party continued at the top of the parking structure which had been converted into a gorgeous green garden/atrium, and true to the style of the famous jewelry house, no expense was spared in entertaining us, their clients, journalists and celebrities with the best of food, cocktails, champagne, desert and entertainment.
Ran in to some old friends like Dave Thomas there, and met some new ones like George Blodwell. All in all it was a perfect party with beautiful people, beautifully curated food, dazzling ambiance and most importantly the worlds most stunning jewels.
