Neiman Marcus general manager Renee Janovsky and her team hosted a dinner party in the innovation kitchen at Forte Belanger in Troy on Wednesday to show off a lavish display of precious jewelry by Maria Canale for Forevermark. While Forte Belanger executive sous chef Collin John described the intricacies of each dish in a multicourse, wine-paired meal, elegant models worked the room dripping in Maria Canale’s breathtaking diamond jewelry.
Canale, in town from New York for the occasion, brought enough jewelry to share, at least during dinner; she decorated several female guests in her dazzling necklaces, bracelets and rings as they enjoyed their meals. And while all those fabulous pieces were returned at the end of the night, we couldn’t help overhearing at least three guests make serious inquiries about purchasing Canale baubles of their own. Center stones in Canale’s collection for Forevermark at Neiman Marcus range from .5 to 3 carats, retailing for $8,800 to more than $100,000.
We have to give a special shout out to Forte Belanger. They continue to prove themselves as the best catering team in Metro Detroit. The service is always impeccable (thank you Fernando and Tim) and the food, while consistently tasty, seems to have recently risen to an even higher level of divine. The whole team at Forte Belanger was 5-Star this evening. Congratulations![/et_pb_text][et_pb_gallery admin_label=”Gallery” gallery_ids=”494,499,498,497,496,495″ fullwidth=”off” posts_number=”10″ show_title_and_caption=”off” show_pagination=”on” background_layout=”light” auto=”off” hover_overlay_color=”rgba(255,255,255,0.9)” caption_all_caps=”off” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid” /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
