Neiman Marcus Fashion Island, which is located in tony Newport Beach, Calif., kicks off a monthlong Bulgari pop-up shop this week. Guessing there will be more than a few Serpenti sparklers. The brand is also celebrating the 20th anniversary of its covetable, collectible B.zero1 rings this year with some new iterations. And just think of the O.C. celebrities who may be dropping in…

Jade Trau Trunk Show: July 6–7

At The Vault Nantucket, the New England jewelry store owned and curated by Katherine Jetter (a fantastic designer in her own right) will reprise its summertime lecture series. This week, jewelry designer Jade Trau is the guest of honor, no doubt with some of her superchic bridal pieces and stackable diamond goodies in tow. Guests are encouraged to bring in an heirloom piece for a Trau makeover.
