Well known fine jewellery store Weir & Sons invited a host of loyal customers to their annual festive evening in their iconic Grafton Street premises recently. Guests were treated to seasonal drinks and canapés while they perused the many premium brands available such as Patek Philippe, Rolex, Cartier, Chopard and Mikimoto.

Guests were also able to experience how a sculptor from well known Spanish brand Lladro prepares one of its famous porcelain pieces. All Lladro pieces are handmade and guests were able to witness Raúl Rubio as he went about the intricate process of making one of these exclusive pieces of sculpture.

Weir & Sons Marketing Director, Chris Andrews, explains how he is “delighted to have Raúl here with us tonight. Customers can see the many fine Lladro pieces we have on sale here in Weir & Sons, but now they can also experience the very detailed and precise work that goes into producing
one of these pieces.”

Weir & Sons was established in 1869 and over the years has welcomed many famous faces including Walt Disney, Rita Hayworth and Prince Rainier and Princess Grace of Monaco.  Among those at the party were Ali Toolan, Ann Cheung, Gemma and Michael Maughan and Tina Koumarianos. 

There were a number of bright young couples in attendance on the evening, shopping for engagement rings for a festive proposition perhaps?  Well, diamonds are a girl’s best friend!
