A Hawaii public appearance of John Loring, Tiffanys design director and the companys voice of good taste, is set for 6:30 p.m. Jan. 16.
It may seem an odd event for the Hawaii Theatre stage: no dancing or musicians, just one man speaking, with slides.
But this particular man has planned opulent, sophisticated fetes for Irving Berlins 100th birthday and Ronald Reagans final state dinner as president and literally wrote the book on "Tiffany Taste."
Since 1837, Tiffany has set the pace for American style in jewelry, entertaining and table settings.
Lorings talk will chronicle Tiffanys evolution from a purveyor of stationary and fancy goods into one of the worlds pre-eminent jewelers.
Tickets: Victoria Okada, 791-1302. Cost: $125. The price includes a champagne reception, five-course dinner and an autographed copy of one of Lorings books.
