Happy Holidays and a Happy New YearDecember 29, 2015
Happy Holidays! This marks the first full year that my jewelry store that carries my name, Ceci Wong, has been in Menlo Park. My daughter Chloe and I are excited to be part of the community.
Earlier this year, we hosted the official grand opening of the store. The event brought out a number of the local who’s who, including Menlo Park Mayor Catherine Carlton and Palo Alto Council Member Liz Kniss, as well as new and loyal customers, who wanted to share in the excitement. We would also like to thank the Menlo Park Chamber of Commerce and Jim Cogan, economic development manager with the City of Menlo Park, for making it a success.
We have welcomed some extraordinary jewelers to the store, including jade expert David Lin. We are proud to carry the Bay Area’s largest collection of A-grade Burmese jadeite pieces by David Lin. We look forward to hosting more special events in 2016, including one featuring world-renowned jeweler Paula Crevoshay.
The store carries the best-known lines of engagement and wedding jewelry such as Tacori, Caro74, and Benchmark rings. We also features some harder-to-find pieces by Alishan, A & Furst, and Mimi So. In addition I was delighted to design new pieces and redesign other jewelry pieces from their past for a few of our customers this year.
The launch of the Oris Marine Force Recon GMT watch was a highlight of the year. The watch is designed to meet the exacting standards of Marine Force Recon – a special operations command unit. We’ve been involved with Oris and the Marine Corps in developing the Force Recon GMT, since the project was conceived two years ago.
Ceci Wong is also the proud sponsor of the Sharks upcoming 25th anniversary gala to benefit the Shark’s Foundation. As long-time fans of the Sharks, we are proud to sponsor the San Jose Sharks 25th anniversary celebration. In addition, we have designed an eye-catching piece of fine jewelry that can be worn as a pendant or lapel pin commemorating this milestone in Sharks history. This versatile treasure is a limited edition with only 25 of them made to mark this special occasion.
If you haven’t had a chance to visit, please come by the store. You will find internationally known lines of jewelry and a collector’s dream of top-of-the line limited production Swiss timepieces.
We wish you a happy new year!
