Fine jewelry and the Hamptons are natural bedfellows, so The Daily Summer and de Grisogono were compelled to gather a group of bauble-loving chicsters for dinner at c/o The Maidstone in East Hampton on Thursday night. Gillian Miniter was the evening’s gracious host, and she greeted friends like Di Mondo, Suzanne Johnson, and Cricket Burns over a delicious meal of seared salmon and chilled corn soup. The night also included a live performance by Acute Inflections. We caught up with Miniter to talk summer plans and jewels…
How was your summer?
The highlight of my summer was the time I spent in Los Angeles. My daughter Serena was studying at UCLA and I moved in to the L’Ermitage in Beverly Hills and I loved it! We also spent a lot of time enjoying NYC this summer as well as several short trips to places like Saratoga, Lake Placid and, of course, the Hamptons!
Who are you wearing tonight?
How often do get to the Hamptons?
Most summers we come out three to four times but this year we had so much going on, so we only came twice, both times to East Hampton.
What should every woman look for in a piece of jewelry?
Jewelry is a very personal item and I think the most important thing is to love it, whether you will wear it every day or twice a year. If you love it you will always look forward to putting it on and you will feel good wearing it.
What was your first piece of jewelry?
I was given a baby pearl necklace when I was born and I still have it. It is very sweet.
