Jewelry designer to take part in trunk show, fundraiser
Lily & Co. Jewelers will host a trunk show featuring celebrity jewelry designer Doron Hakimian on Nov. 15-16 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the store, at 520 Tarpon Bay Road, Sanibel.
Hakimian, president and chief designer of Doves by Doron Paloma, has created designs for celebrities ranging from First Lady Michelle Obama to Jennifer Lopez and Catherine Zeta-Jones. He is widely considered among the world’s biggest names in the luxury jewelry industry.
“We’re thrilled to host Doron for the third year in a row on Sanibel, where he will reveal the treasures he creates using 18-karat gold, diamonds and precious gemstones,” Dan Schuyler, co-owner with Karen Bell, said. “The trunk show will feature jewelry inspired by the beauty of nature that surrounds us on Sanibel.”
The show coincides with the Swing for Hope tennis and pickleball tourney that Lily & Co. Jewelers is sponsoring on Nov. 16 at the Beachview Tennis Club to benefit Community Housing and Resources.
Hakimian is an avid tennis player who was introduced to Schuyler through coaching legend Nick Bollettieri. They will participate in the day-long fundraiser, which will include clinics and round-robin tournaments with Bollettieri and other professionals. In addition, court-side games with prizes and raffles will include a jewelry treasure by Doron.
“Dan, Karen and Nick have the same passion for giving back to their community as I do,” Hakimian said. “This event is just a small part of what they do for their neighbors and I’m thrilled to participate in this benefit.”
