The Milanese jewelry house held a Gala Dinner to unveil its new High Jewelry Collection ‘Ode to Milan’ consisting of 33 precious handcrafted jewels dedicated to the beauty of its home city’s architecture and design. This year also marks the 20-year anniversary of Pomellato’s Creative Director Vincenzo Castaldo, and this new collection pays tribute to Milan, the city that has influenced his work over the years. Hosting the event in Paris, the home of High Jewelry, guests were captivated by a special ballet performance of Alessandra Ferri ‘prima ballerina assoluta’ and Marcelo Gomes principal dancer. Held at the renowned Palais de Tokyo in Paris, Europe’s biggest center for contemporary and modern art, the beautiful environs were dramatically lit to best highlight the magnificent jewels that were worn both by key celebrities as well as on a catwalk of models. Celebrities and KOL invitees then enjoyed a gourmet Italian-inspired dinner prepared by the twice Michelin-starred Chef Pisani of Aimo e Nadia, as they were treated to curated music choices by French DJ Inès Mélia.
