We were invited to a private dining room in Bobo's West Village townhouse yesterday, to take in jewelry designer Laura Lobdell's holiday collection, laid out amongst an impressive assortment of confections.

The "Champagne and Chandeliers" theme obviously caught our attention, and the array of jewels (as well as the, ahem, desserts) exceeded all expectations.

Overseeing the presentation was Xiao, resident pup of the Laura Lobdell shop, which resides next door to Bobo.

We were particularly taken with the silk, tulle and velvet wrap bracelets, a wintry spin on the current stock of light and silky versions now in the store.

True statement pieces, these are bracelets to put on when a basic cuff or bangle just won't do.

Although it's hard to capture properly on camera, this is one of the world's more delightful inventions: a mink ring, dyed a deep indigo and topped off with a few beads.

Among the piles of goodies strewn throughout the tabletop were Lobdell's newest riff on the chandelier earring. Hand-cut from an antique book, the paper danglies are brushed with sterling silver and gold on one side.

Enter Champagne: besides the French theme, Piper-Heidsieck helped inspire Lobdell's precious cork necklaces.

The cork necklaces cast a simple shape—but one that connotes celebration, for sure—into precious metals for posterity.
