If anyone knows how to throw the most fabulously stylish party with a cause at the Hampton’s during the summer, it is none other than Jill Zarin.  Her 5th Annual Luxury Luncheon on July 29 was the place to discover the hottest new fashion trends with sales benefiting the International Thyroid Oncology Group in honor of Bobby Zarin who is being treated for Thyroid Cancer.  And with rebellious chic studs hitting the Paris runways shows of Chanel, Valentino and Louboutin this FALL, celebrities attending the event were over the moon to snag their own “stud” bracelet – the Borchia Bracelet.  The name Borchia means “studs” in Italian – how apropos.


Carmen Sol, the luxury resort accessories brand, donated their first 100 bracelets to help the philanthropic event.  Crafted in Prop 65 compliant jelly material with a rose scent, these vibrantly colored bracelets could be seen on the arms of all the guests who rushed to snap up them up. Oh and they came with a matching fun Borchia tote that was also immediately sold out.  What a fashion find!! Here Carmen tells us why she decided to donate to this very worthy cause and what her thoughts were behind the design.

Why did you decide to dedicate your new bracelet to this event?

We wanted to be part of such a great event doing something special and wanted to have the first 100 bracelets donated to the cause.  Bracelets are not available in the market yet and we wanted the first 100 people supporting such a great cause feeling special.

Also we donated a lot of our HOPE and BELIEVE charms to the people attending the event in sign of support of the beautiful event!


What is the meaning of your design?

We are a brand about LOVE, chicness and simplicity! We are reinventing the jelly in a fun way!

What was the most meaningful moment at Jill’s event at her Hampton house?

We met so many wonderful people interested to get involved with the great cause of the event. Everybody loved our HOPE charms and they were walking around the house with the charm attached to their bags. Even gentlemen and kids were using the HOPE charms in sign of support! Was just a great event!

The Borchia Bracelet will be available online  starting August 11th and will retail for $20.
