Now we know you like to save your tennis bracelet, gem-encrusted nameplate, and 3-carat eternity band for a Cinderella-esque ball with your entourage, but make an exception tonight for Dress Up in Diamonds at the South African Jewels Showroom (5295 Town Center Rd., Ste. 202, Boca Raton). At this pinkies-in-the-air event, guests will enjoy complimentary cocktails and hors doeuvres while trying on sparkling diamond jewelry and trendy summer and fall fashions from Style U. If you accidentally left your bling at home, just buy a raffle ticket and hope that you win a pair of diamond earrings. A portion of the proceeds from the evening will benefit Kids@Home, a non-profit organization ensuring teens have a smooth transition from foster care to adulthood. This get-your-rocks-on event is free and takes place from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Call 561-347-9111 or visit southafricanjewels.com.
