2016 Community Events


Benefit for the Paramount Theater and WVPT Public Television

Presented by Charlottesville's Business Women's Round Table, a part of the Charlottesville Region Chamber of Commerce.

George joined the Paramount and WVPT Public Television for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres in celebration of the premiere episode of Downton Abbey's sixth and final season.

In addition to donating a sterling silver and amethyst cuff bracelet to the event raffle, Keller & George put together a special display of estate jewels showcasing the styles — Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau, Edwardian, Art Deco, Exotic Influences and WWI — that the ladies of Downton Abbey might have worn during the span of the show; from 1912 just after the sinking of the Titanic through 1924.

Quadruplicity Central Virginia's Premier Women's Conference

Presented by Charlottesville's Business Women's Round Table, a part of the Charlottesville Region Chamber of Commerce.

In February, Keller & George was among the sponsors of the 2016 Quadruplicity Conference for Women at the DoubleTree Hotel; a daylong event focused on professional and personal development. A highlight of the event is the presentation of the annual Q Award, which honors a woman who exemplifies leadership, success, community service, and who supports other women and the Chamber. Each year, Keller & George Jewelers handcrafts a custom jewel for the honoree: an 18-karat white gold pendant in the shape of the letter Q embellished with a diamond accent designed by our store manager, Charleen Pfaff. Congratulations to Amy-Sarah Marshall, the 2016 Q Award recipient! Amy-Sarah is founding president of the Charlottesville Pride Community Network, which advocates for LGBTQ rights in the C'ville area.
