Gucci High Jewelry Marks Debut at VIP London Jewelers Dinner

Our gorgeous Gucci boutique aside, it's not every day that one finds the world of Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele celebrated and on full display on Long Island. But leave it to the Mark and Candy Udell of London Jewelers who, together with their multi-generational family members Randi, Scott and Zach, to exclusively debut on the East Coast Hortus Deliciarum (Latin for "Garden of Delights"), the first-ever Gucci High Jewelry collection. The lavish yet intimate dinner and jewelry viewing took place at the historic Sands Point Preserve -- the venue completely transformed by Gucci's special events team using their wildly successful Gucci Decor home collection to fully immerse the evening in its brand ethos, spirit and vitality.

Following cocktails and after many a guest selected a bauble (or three) that she simply had to bring home with her, guests gathered in the cavernous dining room, where two long, elegant dinner tables -- awash in lush centerpieces and flattering candlelight -- awaited. With words of welcome and deep appreciation from Gucci America president and ceo Susan Chokachi and Gucci Timepieces president and ceo Piero Braga, it became clear that the Florentine luxury house's relationship with the Udells runs deep -- the two have worked together since the 1970s, in fact. 

Gucci left no detail overlooked, even flying in indie band Tennis Music from Denver to perform for the crowd. While a sumptuous dessert was served, many found themselves back in the High Jewelry gallery to try on their favorite pieces once again or, as in many instances, seal the deal on the newest piece to their jewelry collection.
