Serious Dallas jewelry shoppers got the VIP treatment at an exclusive trunk show with the incomparable Todd Reed, who offered personal style advice to lucky attendees.

Robin Ladik and Joanne Teichman welcomed guests — including Kimberly Schlegel Whitman, Kaki Roach, Jane Darrow, Joyce Goss and Paige Flink — for an afternoon of lunch, conversation and luxury shopping.

Hosted at Marquis Bar, ladies also were treated to innovative food and refreshing cocktails while perusing some of Ylang 23's most intricate and exceptional jewelry, which ranged from simple solitaires to intricate and elaborate cuffs and pendants created from Reed's vault of rustic diamonds.

"Each piece has a story, each diamond has a history, and Todd personally connects with each collector and new client to impart meaning to his jewelry," Teichman said. "Dallas women just love meeting him and shopping the collection."

This shopping spree also had a charitable bent: 10 percent of proceeds from the day went to the Family Place.
