The ooh-la-la quotient was off the charts at Zadok Jewelers when the Zadok family pulled out the stops for their "All That Glitters" holiday party. Various jewelers sent a sleigh load of sparklies for the evening, dazzling temptations sure to be on more than a few wish lists.

Perhaps most delicious were the special offerings from four designers who made personal appearances and brought along oodles of bling — JJ Williams of JJ Number 8,  Rina Limor of her namesake company and Sutra founders and designers Arpita and Divyanshu Navlakha.

Add to those the reps from various companies such as Mikimoto, Yvel, Roberto Coin, Goshwara, Ulysse Nardin and Dior promoting their wares and you have one glorious night guaranteed to fuel a holiday credit card frenzy.

Aside from the delicious self-indulgence that buying fine jewelry and watches affords, there was a philanthropic side to the evening. Proceeds from the night's raffle went to Lemonade Day. Its founders, Lisa and Michael Holthouse made the scene with Lisa signing copies of her children's book, It All Started With a Turtle.

With holiday decor by Darryl & Co. and yummy party foods from Silverstone, it was difficult not to be in a festive mood. And that's just what Helene and Dror Zadok had hoped for. Add their sons and wives — Gilad and Lisa Zadok, Segev and Amy Zadok and Jonathan Zadok to hosting duties.

Bedazzled by the bling were guests including Heidi and David Gerger, Martine Weitz, Christine and Jonathan Zou, Beth Wolff, Catherine Miller, Debra and Kerry Bonner, Stacy Parker, Michelle and Aaron Lewis, Susan Vick, Monica Bickers and Edward Sanchez.
