On Thursday, David and Sybil Yurman hosted the reopening of their , which was recently renovated to expand into the former Bang & Olufsen space next door. Kelly Lynch, Emma Roberts, Eugene Sadovoy and others came out to celebrate.
Overheard at the party was a story that Yurman began his career taking jewelry-making classes at Santa Monica College. He and his wife live in New York, but flew into Los Angeles over a week ago to host the evening and several other events. (Last weekend, Yurman and P.S. Arts sponsored the opening night of the Los Angeles Modernism show. On Wednesday, Yurman hosted a dinner for the Art of Elysium Heaven Gala Host Committee.)
Some eye-catching jewelry among the crowd of celebrities, editors, shoppers, stylists and friends of the Yurmans included their new candy-colored collection of popping pink and blue baby diamond cluster rings, pendants and bracelets.
Of particular note was a Tourmaline ring with gemstones found only in Brazil—though currently no longer mined—worth $450,000. The one in Yurman's shop is rare, pure in clarity, exotic and flawless.
Across the street the Beverly Hills Education Foundation had their fundraiser atop the Hotel Rodeo Drive. Many BHEF board members came by the store after the party.
Others wandered up the street where filmmaker Paul Haggis was hosting the reopening of Brioni, another brand well-worn in Hollywood. Across town Dita Von Teese opened her weekend tour at the House of Blues with a friends and family night, Victoria Secret threw its annual "What Is Sexy" party at Mr. C Hotel and —and kindly stuck to helicopters for the night.
