RUBY REVELRY: TENENBAUM CLASSIC JEWELERS CELEBRATES 40 YEARS ANNE LEE PHILLIPS CAVORTS IN THE LAND OF MANY CARATS. PHOTOGRAPHY WILSON PARISH. A garnet and gilded invitation summoned socials to "Toast to the Ruby Anniversary Celebration of Tenenbaum Classic Jewelers at the Soirée of the Season." Indeed, the beloved bijoux purveyor had twice the reason to go crimson for its annual party. Always a highlight of the holiday social season, the occasion of the jeweler's 40th anniversary made the festivities extra jubilant. A tent adjacent to the Post Oak boutique held twinkling chandeliers and songstress Julie Johnson (aka The Song Bird), who set the mood with dreamy jazz. But the main show was the glittering cases of fine and estate jewels from David Webb, Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Tiffany & Co., Buccellati and Dunay, with many clients doing some serious eyeing and acquiring. Dapper and beloved proprietors Tony Bradfield and Kevin Black — Bradfield in a Dolce & Gabbana velvet dinner jacket and Black in white with Deakin & Francis cuff links — mingled with 350 devoted clientele and friends, catching them up on all the news ... A lush new Tenenbaum boutique recently opened within Tootsies, and in fall 2016, after 10 years on Post Oak, Bradfield and Black are moving to a new luxe and expanded store on Westheimer adjacent to buzzy River Oaks District. Sparkling: Tenenbaum's Christina Stith; Tootsies' Fady Armanious; Houston Ballet's Jim Nelson and ball chairs Gina and Devinder Bhatia (Tenenbaum donates to numerous local philanthropic causes throughout the year, and serves as the preferred jeweler partner of the upcoming Ballet Ball); Margaret Williams, Valerie and Tracy Dieterich, Allie Fields, Vicki West, Anne Carl, Jo and Jim Furr, Alex and Astley Blair, Pat Breen, Allyson Camp, Milton Townsend, Patti and Don Murphy, Frances Marzio, Rachel Regan, Shannon Bell, Jerry Ann and Victor Costa, and Larissa and Scott Ipsen. As parting is such sweet sorrow, guests left with salted caramels in a pretty package.
