make mine marvel

I have been thinking about twists of fate lately as I pore over jewelry history for my second book. How do some pieces survive for centuries while others are dismantled, lost forever? Imagine if the Vladimir tiara, worn regularly by Queen Elizabeth, had not been smuggled out of Russia by a British agent in disguise. Or where the diamonds Napoleon gave Marie Louise would have gone if not for Marjorie Merriweather Post. Would we have seen that cameo tiara at a Swedish royal wedding if Josephine hadn’t kept it after the divorce? At some point we’ll be asking the same of the Dresden Green diamond. On November 25, thieves broke into the Green Vault in Dresden and made off with several of the crown jewels of Saxony, but they did not…

Certain things at Cartier can be attained via a price tag. A double loop Panthère watch in gold and diamonds, for instance. Or maybe another Love bracelet to add to your collection. But for select well-established Cartier clients there is another tier of membership—one to which access can’t be bought. Instead you must be invited by the maison to its London flagship, where the staff will show you this top secret book of monograms and help you design your own, which you can have imprinted on any Cartier item you please (size permitting). Imagine: Now your Panthère, once indistinguishable from all the rest, bears a coded message, a discreet tell visible only to those who know, that you’re in the club too.…

how the palace lost control

When Prince Andrew walked BBC reporter Emily Maitlis out of Buckingham Palace on Thursday, November 14, he paused to show her a statue of Prince Albert, his great-great-great-grandfather. “The first royal entrepreneur,” Andrew told the reporter. “Next time you come, we will talk about Pitch at Palace,” Andrew said, referring to the platform for supporting digital startups he launched after he resigned as a UK trade envoy in 2011 following criticism of his friendship with the late convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. Maitlis had just interviewed the Duke of York about his relationship with Epstein, and if Andrew had any notion of the global media storm that would be triggered when the interview aired, he showed no sign of it. Three days later the piece was broadcast, and Andrew seemed to…

we’ll have manhattan

Caroline Nype and Adam Parker grew up just three blocks from each other on the Upper East Side, but they wouldn’t meet until 2015, through the League dating app. Three years later Adam, a hedge fund manager, proposed to Caroline, associate vice president of digital and marketing for lifestyle brand Something Navy, in their New York apartment. The couple celebrated with dinner at the Carlyle and a staycation at the Crosby Street Hotel in Soho. In other words, the best of Manhattan. For their June 2019 wedding, a local venue was the obvious choice. “I felt passionately about an Old World New York building with heritage and character,” says Caroline, who scouted various private clubs before settling on the Metropolitan Club on Fifth Avenue, which had enough space for their 220…
