Last week I was invited to the Rosendorff’s Christmas Celebration and launch of their new jewelry collection.
As I approached the Rosendorff’s flagship store in the city, I was greeted by a ballerina covered in jewelry.
Inside, the shop was dripping with jewels, diamonds and men in expensive suits! Ladies were trying on various jewelry and ooohing over the big price tags.
The evening started with an introduction by Angela Tsun, who is a Perth TV celebrity with a classically hot, beachy-blonde, Australian-babe kind of look. She was wearing a stunning necklace by Rosendorff, an elegant silk cocktail dress by Aelkemi, subtle make-up, sophisticated peep-toe shoes and…HOT PINK TOE NAILS. Which I thought was a very cool touch.
In fact, I wanted to take photos of her toe nails, but I thought that was a bit creepy. HI CAN I TAKE A PHOTO OF YOUR TOES?
Then there was a catwalk parade showing off the new collection of jewels and MAN THOSE ROCKS WERE HUGE. There were all kinds of gorgeous coloured diamonds and settings in CRAZY WEIGHTS LIKE 35 CARATS or something – I didn’t quite hear the exact details, because my eyes were bugging out of my head as they sparkled past me!
Then the models walked around through the audience, so everyone could get a close look at the jewelry. Each model was carrying a little prompt card with the details of each piece they were wearing. They were saying things like, “Yes. This necklace is $47,000 dollars!”
For myself, I couldn’t take a proper photo of the jewelry, because I kept having to lower my camera so I could see them with my actual eyes and go OMG IS THAT FOR REAL??
And a little later, as I was talking to a bunch of people, I just kept stopping mid-sentence and looking past their heads to various cabinets of jewelry dotted around the room, and going WILL YOU JUST LOOK AT THAT DIAMOND???
I’m a girl! And I like sparkly things!
And in moments like these, I wish I was rich enough to buy them all. Ok. Maybe just one.
A model wears a necklace worth more than the sale price of all my children….so my children are safe…for now.
