Neiman Marcus Mazza Gallerie; Beth Glassman, event chair; Susan Bressler, M.D., honorary hostess; Clarice Smith and Norma Tiefel, hostesses will host a tea, presenting the Verdura Fine Jewelry Spring 2012 Collection to benefit The Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins.
Verdura Fine Jewelry began creating beautiful baubles and statement pieces in the early 20th century when original designer Duke Fuldo di Vedura joined his friend CoCo Chanel in Paris and began resetting CoCo’s gemstones into more bold settings for daytime wear. As costume balls became the rage in the 1920’s, so did the jewelry line. Since then, the bracelets, rings, necklaces and earrings have been worn by Joan Crawford, Princess Diana, and many others.
The event will include a seated presentation featuring models and refreshments.
WHEN: Saturday, May 12 at 2 p.m.
