To mark the opening of The Jewellery Cut Live and to celebrate the breadth of jewellery talent in the city during London Fashion Week, select guests were invited to Hotel Café Royal after hours to an exclusive VIP party, held in association with fine jewellery house Rarever.
At the exclusive party on September 15th, 2019, which spilled out onto the candlelit balcony overlooking Regent Street, guests were treated to Princess P prosecco and canapés handcrafted by the chefs at the historic Hotel Café Royal.
A highlight of the evening was a performance by Estilo String Quartet, which is famed for its classical rescoring of modern pop songs. Hits performed on the night included Beyoncé’s Crazy in Love, David Bowie’s Life on Mars and Lorde’s Green Light.
“It was a beautifully warm evening and after a busy opening day, this felt like the perfect way to kick back and enjoy the jewels in a relaxed environment with some special guests and beautiful music,” said The Jewellery Cut co-founder Rachael Taylor. “Jewellery is such a critical element of the British fashion scene, and we are just so glad that we could put on a fitting event to celebrate its brilliance during London Fashion Week.”
Party sponsor Rarever, which has recently opened a store on Lancashire Court, just off London’s Bond Street, brought a suite of exquisite diamond jewels to the party. The set Rarever had on display was called Opera, and featured a dazzling combination of rose-cut diamonds, pear shapes, round brilliant pavé and briolettes. Guests were encouraged to try on the Rarever necklace and earrings, which had a combined diamond carat weight of more than 60cts.
“It was beautiful to see so many people have their ‘princess moment,’ as one guest called it when trying on our Opera diamond necklace,” said Rarever director Dakshesh Sangani. “With our new store just around the corner from Hotel Café Royal, The Jewellery Cut Live was a great opportunity for us to meet with new people, introduce them to the brand and our unique luxury diamond jewellery offer that focuses on alternative cuts such as old mine, step and rose cuts. We had some wonderful discussions, and we would invite anyone who met with us at the event, or anybody who is interested in the beauty of expertly crafted diamond jewels, to visit us at the boutique in Lancashire Court, which is now open.”
The party ran long into the night, with guests chatting and sipping wine out on the balcony until the wee hours. Each of the VIP guests left the party with a goody bag, sponsored by luxury packaging specialists Hatton & Spencer. Inside were a wealth of gifts from brands including Rarever, Baroque Rocks, Artisan du Chocolat, Neelu, Maviada, Deborah Blyth and Estilo String Quartet.
“We’d like to thank our sponsors for helping us to bring our vision of an exclusive but inclusive showcase of fine jewellery during London Fashion Week to life,” said The Jewellery Cut co-founder Andrew Martyniuk. “As well as our party sponsors Rarever, Hatton & Spencer and Princess P, we’d also like to thank Visionary Creative Displays for providing us with beautiful showcases for the jewels, and the National Association of Jewellers, Push PR and Retail Jeweller magazine for their support in helping spread the word about The Jewellery Cut Live.”
