The accent was on French at “Les Bijoux,” Saturday night’s opening gala for the “Bijoux Parisians: French Jewelry from the Petit Palais, Paris” exhibit at Dixon Gallery and Gardens.
After they gasped at the brilliant gold, silver, platinum, diamond and emerald jewelry from famous French houses, including Cartier and Lalique, inside the gallery, guests gasped again when they entered an enormous clear plastic tent, which was seductively lit, and decorated with flowers.
When Priscilla Presley, dressed in white, arrived, gasps could be heard again. “She is a huge supporter of the Dixon.”
Priscilla was also a guest at the June 2011 opening gala for the “Jean-Louis Forain: La Comedie Parisienne” exhibit at Dixon.
