The other Friday night, we joined historic jeweller Mazzucchelli’s for a glamorous evening, celebrating 115 years of ‘shining bright’. In true Adelaide Fashion Festival style, the evening featured fashion, art, jewellery, and music.
This luxe AFF celebration screamed VIP, featuring flowing champagne, red roses, and, uh, a casual free diamond up for grabs. The AFF Mazzucchelli’s VIP Marquee also featured a very impressive ice sculpture, glistening just like the diamond that the jeweller handed out on the evening.
That one lucky attendee walked away with a 0.50 carat Forevermark Diamond (no, it wasn’t us and yes, we’re kind of dark about it….). On arrival, guests were encouraged to choose a single red rose from the large pile by the red rope VIP entrance.
One of those roses was marked as the winning rose, and we’re sure that the owner of that rose enjoyed more than a few champagnes in celebration late that night, not unlike the ladies on The Bachelor after surviving a rose ceremony (only better, we’d imagine).
Instaqueen Elle Ferguson was also enjoying the AFF celebrations at the Mazzucchelli’s marquee on Friday night, taking a break from the Bondi sunshine to attend SA’s fashion moment of the year, the Adelaide Fashion Festival.
Mazzucchelli’s has been operating in South Australia since 1903, and continues to be a leader in diamonds. Experts in the four C’s (colour, clarity, cut, and carat), Mazzucchelli’s have been selling diamonds for over a century and can tell you everything you need to know about these sparkly rocks we love so much.
Ahead of opening the doors to Mazzucchelli’s in 1903, Matthew Mazzucchelli, a budding watchmaker working in the goldfields, met a keen eyed jeweller by the name of Sam Downes. The two instantly recognised something in each other; a vision and passion for their craft that stemmed from more than just the work.
Then, the watchmaker and the jeweller took their passion and turned it into a business that is still continuing a century later.
