In attendance were newly elected Society president Coco Kopelman with her husband Arie Kopelman, who exclaimed, “It's the first time I’ve been dragged to anything. For years I've been dragging her.”

Others admiring the fabulous baubles in the showcases were co-chairs Jamee Gregory and Leslie Jones, Graff president Henri Barguirdjian, Saks vice chairman Steven Sadove and wife Karin, Susan Burke, Daisy Soros, Jennifer Creel, Karen LeFrak, Whitney Fairchild,  Debbie Bancroft, Chris Meigher, Dr. Annette Rickel,  R.
