It was an evening of sparkles, diamonds and pearls, topped off with signature cocktails and pearl-inspired white chocolate, at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, on Tuesday, October 6th, 2015. VIP guests had the chance to wear the gorgeous necklace from Gloria Bass Design, as she was celebrating her 40th anniversary, surrounded by friends, media and women of influence.
With an intimate atelier nestled in the heart of Westmount since 1992, Gloria Bass has been dazzling the jewellery world since 1975. She made her mark early in her career with her collection of stackable rings and has garnered admiration and acclaim for her collection of “wearable art”. Her unique style and signature design is easily recognized in each of her sophisticated piece, evoking sensuality and elegance. There is no shortage of quality in her custom-made jewellery, reflecting their wearer’s needs and personality, transforming a special occasion in a “wearing memory”.
To commemorate the momentous occasion, Gloria Bass enlisted the visionary minds at DTK Media to create an innovative “Women of Influence” advertising campaign. A diverse mix of high-profile, notable Quebec women were specially chosen to share their own unique sparkle: Suzanne Clement (Quebec actress), Genevieve Borne (TV host and personality), France D’Amour (singer), Ethné de Vienne (co-owner Epices de Cru and TV host), Isabelle Hudon (business woman), Azamit (model, stylist and founder of Souk @ Sak), Cynthia Stilovitz (ER doctor, family & cosmetic physician at Clinique Anti-Aging), Louise Lecavalier (dancer from LaLaLa Human Steps), and Jennifer Campbell (founder and editor of Diary of a Social Gal).
Gloria Bass’ countless achievements are as dazzling as her designs. Her work is continually recognized in the industry, amongst her honours. She was a finalist in the 1990 Diamonds International Awards, Award Winner for the 1989 Diamonds Today, Winner of Editor’s Choice Award for Canadian Jeweller Magazine in both 1992 and 1988. And, she was the only Canadian among 10 North American designers commissioned to create a collection celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Metropolitan Opera Guild.
Montreal Times wishes Gloria the best for the years to come, and we can’t wait to see what she has in store for her Gold anniversary…wow…50 years!
