Jade Signature presented the premiere Chopard exhibition of Oscar-winner jewelry for the grand opening of the sales gallery. The theme of the evening was international design, with Swiss jewelry house Chopard set amidst the designs of Parisian interior design star Pierre-Yves Rochon for the Herzog & de Meuron tower. The exhibition featured over $4 million dollars worth of pieces, adorned by award-winning celebrities on the red carpet and lucky guests of the evening.

With over 10,000 square feet of space, top brokers, designers, jewel aficionados and celebrities were able to mingle near the dazzling Chopard exhibition under giant portraits of memorable Oscar winners wearing the pieces. Every detail of the party, from Karla Catering to the endless flow of Champagne, Hermes furnishings and china patters to the electric harpist, foreshadowed the elegant international lifestyle to come at Jade Signature.

The most romantic place to bike in South Florida

Brian and Naomi at the Sea Ranch Center

A little romance at the Sea Ranch Shopping Strip in Sea Ranch Lakes along our bicycle adventure on A1A.

This past Sunday night, my fiancé, Naomi and I embarked on a 65 mile bicycle journey along A1A from Parkland to Coral Gables. The propose of the trip: to see if we could do it.

I will preface this by saying that I’ve made October my personal “No Car, No Facebook Month”, also to see if I could do it (more on this in a future post). Naomi was gracious enough to go along with my scheme to bike the entire east coast of Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. We live in the middle of suburban Coral Gables, and regularly bicycle commute as far as Little Haiti, Wynwood, Downtown and Miami Beach, but by no means, had we been training for a long distance ride like this one.
