Pearls & Puptails

Royal Jewelers is partnering with the Kentucky Humane Society for an adorable and delightful fundraiser on Thursday, Feb. 8. Shoppers can kick off Valentine’s celebrations in style, and will have the opportunity to cuddle with furry friends while browsing through a vast selection of gorgeous items. To learn more about this first-time event, we spoke with Royal Jewelers’ Marketing Manager Amy Schulwolf.

What is Pearls & Puptails?

Pearls & Puptails is a fun and interactive party with food, cocktails and adoptable puppies on-site.

How did this event come about?

Royal Jewelers has always supported the KHS; we’ve been on the committee for the Tuxes & Tails gala for many years and wanted to help them further. We are a family-owned jewelry store that has been in business and involved with the Louisville community for over 70 years, and we love helping local organizations. On a personal note, my chihuahua rescue, Papi, came from KHS via the St. Matthews Feeder Supply, so they hold a special place in my heart.

What can guests expect from the event?

Guests can expect a good time! They will get to hold adoptable puppies, eat great food and experience special couple massages from Jarvis Medical Center. Chef Loreal Gavin, a Food Network star who will have her own TV show premiering on CMT this month, will be serving up the appetizers. We will also have savings up to 60% on everything in the store (excluding loose diamonds). Guests will have the chance to pick a heart out of Cupid’s Love Basket to see how much they will save. A Carizza Bridal Trunk Show and a Rafael Jewelry Trunk Show will be going on as well.

How does this party benefit the Kentucky Humane Society?

A percentage of every single sale will benefit KHS, and we hope that all of the puppies in attendance get adopted! VT
