A few weeks ago, I got an email from my friends at Mayors Jewelers. They were inviting me to see a new collection of timepieces by Lady Heart. I didn’t do my homework, so I really didn’t know what to expect. Boy, was I WOW’d.
First of all, the launch included a lunch at Club 50, on the 50th floor of the Viceroy Hotel in Miami. The view was amazing. I could almost see forever from there! It was a very intimate group setting, with only select members of the local media and fashion scene invited. Joseph Hacmon, CEO of Lady Heart and also the watch designer, gave me the rundown on the new wrist pieces. They are FAB!
He drew inspiration from the romantic time when the days draws to a close, hence the name “Tonight.” They have 38mm dials, making them perfect for both men and women. They also have interchangeable bands–leather, as well as classic, black and rose gold stainless. It features a classic Roman dial design and each has a signature–the exquisite Lady Heart diamond, composed of two half moon cute diamonds, hugging a pricess cut diamond, to create a “heart” at the twelve o’clock marker.
They also had a collection of the ULTRA LUXE Lady Heart Jewelry Collection, including the Riviera necklace that retails for more than $300,000 and the Wave drop earrings that sell for $30,000. I loved them all!
Second of all, the lunch itself was amazing, with a most elegant tablescape. The first course was an heirloom tomato salad served with feta cheese and spicy basil. We were given a choice for the main course–either ricotta ravioli, grilled filet loup de mare, or flatiron steak with bearnaise sauce. All three were served with wild greens and roasted mushrooms. They saved the best for last–essencia of chocolate sesame halva cake!
Third of all, PLEASE imagine my face when the Mayors and Lady Heart teams announced that they were going to GIVE AWAY 2 of the watches after lunch. Seriously? Really? SERIOUSLY? You all plan to give away two $1800 watches??
I quickly sized up my odds. There were 10 journalists there–2 watches to be given away–I LIKED those odds! But alas, it wasn’t meant to be–I didn’t win either. But I had a fab time nonetheless.
And I came right home and showed the Lady Heart catalog to my husband, hoping he catches the Valentine’s Day gift hint. The Tonight Collection is available EXCLUSIVELY at Mayors in Florida and Georgia. Of course, if you aren’t in one of those states, send me your cash and I’ll pick one up for you!
