Fizz and diamonds were on the Lowry Hotel menu for a very special afternoon tea with Olivia Grace jewellery

Jewellery designer to the stars Helena Fine dazzled at a special afternoon tea held in her honour at the five star Lowry Hotel.

The Manchester-born CEO of Olivia Grace jewellery who designed the wedding ring of Penny Lancaster for her marriage to Rod Stewart, shared her experiences of being 20 years in the male-dominated diamond trade at the VIP occasion.

It was a family affair too as Helena’s mother Marilyn and father Russell joined their daughter and guests for glasses of fizz in the Lowry bar before heading into the private dining room where tea was served.

The Lowry had catered for every taste, from those with gluten intolerance to vegetarians and non-meat eaters with elegantly laden cakestands filled with sandwiches and sweet delicacies.

Warm scones served with clotted cream and a selection of teas that included everything from English breakfast to rooibos tea, were also served, alongside lashings of prosecco.

As well as enjoying Helena’s sparkling tales, guests were able to try of some of the elegant jewellery which has helped cement her reputation as an ethical, bespoke jeweller par excellence.
