Representing the night's jewelry sponsor were Tenenbaum Jewelers' Tony Bradfi eld and Kevin Black, who provided party favors: a leather wrap bracelet with a shimmering 12mm freshwater pearl, a nod to the pearl's oft-quoted relationship to the moon and as the appropriate gift for a 30th anniversary.
