One of the creatives celebrated was Van Cleef & Arpels senior designer Kia Schwaninger, whom guests watched paint a detailed gouache of a jewelry creation. A gouache is  is a type of paint consisting of pigment, a binding agent (usually gum arabic), and sometimes added inert material, designed to be used in an opaque method. Thank you Wikipedia!

While there, guests such as Daphne Oz, Sami Gayle and Ellen Wong accessorized in Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry. Let's pretend to be these lucky ladies for a sec. I would have gone with the two butterfly ring with diamonds and yellow sapphires (above) and the butterfly earrings.#love

Which styles would you pick? Remember if you're going to dream, dream big.
