It seems like yesterday that I was asked to present the show; I remember how excited we all were to have such an important and prestigious company like Honora joining us. Their experience and knowledge had enabled them to create divine pearl jewellery for so many years, and it seemed they featured in every high-profile glossy magazine and adorned so many celebrities! Was it any wonder we were so excited? And now, 10 years later I still am SO thrilled to present the shows.
We all know the pearls are divine, but I reckon a certain someone who flies over from New York could well be a vital reason so many ladies (include me in that one) tune in to Honora Pearls… The Silver Fox himself, Mr Ralph Rossini!
That first show was torture for Ralph as he was so very nervous (or so he says, though I promise you all I looked after him). However, I actually think he LOVES coming over to see you all now and I know how much he's looking forward to his anniversary visit, particularly as he has some delicious new pearls and colours to tempt us all with. In fact, as I write I have on my long, single strand of white pearls – just what's needed on a rainy Friday!
I shall bring in my wedding photograph for the show – if you've seen it before then apologies. Doesn't that totally prove how much I think of Honora pearls, to wear them on my wedding day?!
In fact it got me thinking of how often I wear my rather splendid Honora collection and how many of my friends and family I have bought Honora for over these 10 years.
What about you? I wish you could send your photos of you wearing your pearls…
I really do hope you can join Ralph and I on Saturday at 2pm and I know Ralph loves chatting with you, it goes without saying I do! So, it's a date then.
See you all tomorrow.
