Paspaley hosted a sunset cocktail party for 150 VIPs, friends and family to celebrate the arrival of its newest collection, Viva by Paspaley. One of the most colourful collections yet, Viva by Paspaley evokes thoughts of long summer days, blue skies, heat and adventure. Featuring vibrant blue topaz, fiery mandarin garnets, elegant smoky quartz and stunning Paspaley pearls, its bold discs of colour lend the collection a distinctly exotic feel.

Guests including Tim Holmes à Court, Amber Scott, Camilla Deague, David & Kristene Deague, Sophie Van Den Akker, Richard Nylon, Gwendolynne Burkin, Cindy Sargon, Janek Gazecki & Natalie DeCourt and Ruki Baillieu joined members of the Paspaley family at the renowned Stokehouse restaurant. An elaborate fashion installation showcased the stunning new collection while guests enjoy the music of piano virtuoso Ben Grayson.

The Stokehouse with its casual beach-side style was very much in tune with the summer mood of the collection. Guests enjoyed a menu designed by Oliver Gould which included Paspaley pearl meat canapés, smoked ocean trout bilini, Hervey Bay scallop ceviche, wild mushroom and taleggio toasties and orange brulee tartlets accompanied by Veuve Clicquot.

Viva by Paspaley is now available in Paspaley stores. Paspaley boutiques are located in Sydney, Melbourne, Darwin, Broome, Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and online at
