What: Cocktail reception introducing TUUM jewelry.

Where: Tony's.

The 411: Having secured the U.S. distribution rights to the Italian jewelry house, Terrie Hogan Turner threw a jewel-infused reception for Michele Pozzo, part of the three-man team creating the international line that is known throughout Europe and about to get its United States splash in the fall. TUUM will join the stable of new Italian and European jewelry designers represented by TreborStyle, the firm owned by Turner and her sister, Marilee Roberts of Sarasota, Fla.

For the record, even Tony Vallone, not one easily awed over jewelry, was eyeing a piece for wife Donna Vallone. During Pozzo's visit, he and Turner toured various boutiques as potential outlets for his pieces.

Who: Admiring the chic selection of enticing baubles were Roz and Alan Pactor, Kendall and Ed Ondarza, Mike Turner, Grace Kim, Larissa and Scott Ipsen, Becky Davis, Shannon Hall, Lisa Gochman, Dan Shank, Jane Brennan-Martin and Richard Van Der.
