Rush HeArts Luncheon 2012

by pbergman 25. February 2012 09:11

With all the love floating around on Valentine's Day, helping young children fulfil their dreams only seemed fitting! We decided to give back to a lovely organization, Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation as they held the 2nd Annual Rush HeArts Luncheon. The evening featured the Amazing Rush Kids and was hosted by none other than the lovely Soledad O'Brien and guests included Golden Globe Winner Idris Elba, Miss Universe Leila Lopes, Super Model Jessica White, and many others. 

Our exquisite Platinum Diamond Heart Pendant was featured in their live auction to help raise funds for the organization, which was founded by Russell Simmons founded back in 1995 (also the DEF Advisory Board Chairman) alongside his brothers, Danny and Joseph "Rev Run" Simmons.

I was more than happy to support of a wonderful event filled with wonderful people!  Check out the picture recap & always remember that love makes life grand!

Valentines Day. Bah Humbug!!! A Message to My Children

by pbergman 16. February 2012 18:54

So my older married children think Valentines Day is a sham! They say "why do you need a special day to say I love you"?, "it just a money making, commercial advertising scheme"! And you know what--both those statements are true! However, Ira and I have been celebrating Valentines Day for over 50 years (never missing one, each year as exciting as the first) True, we don't need a special day to say how we feel about each other,we do that everyday, but it is a day that we celebrate along with every other holiday in the calendar year.  In this electronic age ,where we seem to be busy 24 /7 and we have very little time to spend on any one thing, holidays just give us a wake up call to take some time to make ordinary things in our life more special! To take the everyday and make it special. There's something wonderful about walking around New York ,which I do every day of my life and seeing all the florists busy, seeing store windows beautifully decorated, walking into offices and being greeted by a bowl of chocolate red kisses, restaurants having special menus and giving out roses, and men and women walking in the streets with bouquets!!! Tell me one person who wouldn't feel some sense of excitement in being handed a gift , card 

or experiencing an evening or day that is just a little bit different than every other one. 

And that, my children is what it's all about! That is what life is all about. Going the extra step and making the ordinary EXTRAORDINARY!!  So this Valentines Day I gave Ira a gift on Saturday( just to shake things up a bit) and I have planned a surprise night where we will do everything he loves( and not expensive either). And so you see what makes our relationship still fabulous after all these years!!    PS Sometimes Ira does the planning!

Have a wonderful Valentines Day! 

Ira & Me at this past 24Karat Club, fabulous Love!

Good Awards

by pbergman 5. February 2012 18:48

I hope everyone had a wonderful January! Mine was filled with lots of events and trips. While I have some down time, I wanted to share a few highlights from January. It was such a pleasure to host the inaugural Good Awards for fellow industry influencers. The Diamond Empowerment Fund ( brought together an exceptional group of people to demonstrate the importance of doing good in the communities they work in. We honored leaders such as Varda Shine, Edward Hrabak, Rebecca Foerster, and Ivanka Trump, and enjoyed the musical talents of Grammy- Nominated Singtress Melanie Fiona. A fabulous night with fabulous people.

More to come, stay tuned!



The Good Awards!
