On April 25 and 26, 2012, London’s most exclusive private membership club will introduce 60 of the world’s finest jewelry and watch retailers to an equally exclusive group of wealthy customers.

London's Hurlingham Club

London’s exclusive Hurlingham Club is recognized around the world as one of Great Britain’s greatest private membership clubs. This elegant green oasis, set on 42 acres of magnificent grounds in the heart of central London, routinely hosts prestigious events like The Wimbledon Ball, The World Croquet Federation Championships, the Concours D’Elegance, and Polo in the Park. Now, the Hurlingham Club is home to the exclusive Jewellery and Watch Show, as well.

On April 25 and 26, 2012, 60 of the world’s finest jewelry and watch retailers will meet carefully selected private clients in an atmosphere that is quintessentially English. The Hurlingham Club is the perfect venue to introduce the very latest in fine jewelry and watches to the 15,000 loyal members of the club, along with their personal guests and other hand picked high net worth individuals. The exclusive Club, established in 1867, has been a home to British aristocracy ever since King Edward VII became an early patron.

The Jewellery and Watch ShowThe Hurlingham Club Jewellery and Watch Show is unique in that only 60 exhibitors are invited each year to personally meet and sell to London’s elite. Invited guests include Hurlingham Club members, the individual members of all the other 60 private member clubs in London, key members of leading private banks and wealth management companies, and personally selected high net worth individuals.

For the 60 lucky exhibitors accepted into the prestigious jewelry and watch show, the two-day event represents a fabulous opportunity to present the very finest in luxury goods to an audience that has both the means and desire to buy.

Luxury goods were meant to be seen in a luxurious setting. For a lucky few, the serenity and beauty of Hurlingham Club has become the ultimate venue to contemplate the purchase of fine jewelry or an heirloom watch. The upcoming show on April 25 and 26, 2012 should be the best ever. Of course, it’s up to you to secure your own invitation.

Rare October 2011 Snow Storm Leaves Millions in the Dark


Rockland, County, New YorkIn Rockland County, Upstate New York, home to Gevril Group headquarters, a wintry mix began to fall on Saturday morning. The snow gradually intensified until it turned into a blizzard. The storm continued for around twelve hours leaving a surprising accumulation of a foot of wet heavy snow.

The rare October snowstorm impacted most of the Northeastern United States from Maine to Maryland causing millions of people to sustain damage or lose their electricity. The wet snow weighed heavily on the branches of trees whose leaves had not yet fallen, causing many tree limbs to come down and bring power lines down with them. As a result, many homes, schools and businesses, including Gevril Group, were left without power or heat, and getting around was hampered by closed roads, blocked car lanes and malfunctioning traffic signals.

The Gevril Group building had its electric power restored by Monday morning. The staff worked a full day Monday as usual, but as of this writing, Tuesday morning, many houses and businesses in the area remain dark and cold.

The great October snow storm of 2011 has reportedly been the most damaging in recent US history, but people are slowly digging out and electric power companies are rushing to restore service to their affected customers, many of whom have fled to community shelters. The only winners in this disaster are the proprietors of the booked-up inns which provide refuge for storm victims lucky enough to find hospitality.
