First came the ceremony - nearly 50 of the 300+ alumni came to celebrate and remember old times with each other… seen in the photo is Janis Savitt (M+J Savitt) Steven Lagos, Beth Moskowitz, David Yurman, Sheila Kahn, Frederica, Karen Gerstl, Deborah Blohm, Kristin Moore and Esther Gallant. Each having been in the New Designer Gallery when they debuted in the industry. It was a GREAT time.
Next came a reunion dinner I organized for all — we had more than 120 people there — all laughing and telling stories and genuinely having a ball.To All of My Adventurous Gem Hunting Friends…July 19, 2007 3:28 pmI am inviting all of my gem hunting mavericks to come play and share Gem Adventure Stories from your travels. I would love for you to share a couple memorable stories traveling hunting for a specific gemstone ie. diamonds, sapphires, pearls, emeralds, ruby, tourmaline, coral, amber, etc.
It would be a story that included helping, making a difference or positively affecting a child, person, or family in that area. It would be great if it was a grand adventure. This is your story and you will receive the credit by name or you may choose to be anonymous.I will be happy to call you, record the story then send the transcript back for your approval.
These stories will appear on my website and in my new book. I look forward to hearing from you!
