More Time to See the Hollywood Jewels

Hear about Madonna’s tiara featured at A. Marek Fine Jewelry in Oak Brook? Didn’t get a chance to see Eva Gabor’s jewels? The “famous jewels” that have been featured at A. Marek Fine Jewelry since February 18 will continue to shine at the store through Sunday, March 1. Head out to A. Marek Fine Jewelry in Oak Brook to catch a once-in-a-lifetime glimpse of these precious jewels.

In case you missed it, A Silver Lining was recently featured on three television stations, for their "Red Carpet Moment" event with A. Marek Fine Jewelry. After appearing in February 10's Daily Herald the Hollywood Jewels of the event were presented on WLS, WGN and WMAQ.

On WLS, A. Marek Store Manager Romana Malinowski showed anchors Linda Yu and Sylvia Perez the fine jewels from the Kazanjian Foundation, including the tiara Madonna wore in her wedding to Guy Ritchie. View the entire WLS segment here.

The next day, Romana stopped by WGN-TV with the Hollywood jewels, and shared them with anchor and breast cancer survivor Dina Bair.

Saturday, February 21, Romana was joined by Dr. Sandy Goldberg to share the jewels on NBC5 with anchor Alex Perez. Dr. Sandy even got to wear the tiara Madonna wore in her wedding to Guy Ritchie. Check out for more.

Tune into WLS-Radio 890 AM from noon until 2 p.m. this Sunday, March 1, to listen to Romana chat with Wendy and Maura of "Women of Mass Discussion." They'll be chatting about charity, A. Marek, and of course... the celebrity jewelry!
