Anne Sportun Trunk Show @ Virtu

Apologies to my beloved, sole follower, Jennifer, for merely posting a press release, I'm swamped... and can't read the letters on my computer screen anymore.... Next week the Pipeline's spotlight will focus on the diverse, eclectic, and unified group that is the North Damen Merchants, so perhaps I will pop by Virtu, though for now, here's info on an upcoming trunk show slated for October 9th.

For Immediate Release
Contact: Julie Horowitz Jackson 773.235.3790,
Anne Sportun Trunk Show at Virtu, October 9-11.
Opening Reception Friday, October 9th from 4 to 8pm.

Bucktown boutique Virtu (2034 N Damen Avenue, teams up with Toronto based jeweler Anne Sportun for a weekend trunk show Friday, October 9 through Sunday, October 11. Please join us as we unveil the complete collection of Anne Sportun • Experimetal Jewellery ™. Represented exclusively in Chicago by Virtu, Anne Sportun’s work is recognized the world over by her simple settings sparkling with white and cognac diamond, spectacular stones set in 14kt white and 18kt yellow golds or solid platinum. Based in Toronto, you’ll now have the opportunity of learning locally why Anne’s hands were so highly skilled as to be featured on a 2003 Canadian stamp.

Our trunk show will be an impressive opportunity to witness firsthand the sheer magnitude of the Anne Sportun • Experimetal Jewellery ™ collection. Possessing technical perfection and intimate grace, each detail is hand crafted to be worn as Precious Everyday ™. Whether it is a simple pair of earrings or a magnificent engagement ring you are considering, we invite you to experience the brilliance of one of today’s finest goldsmiths. Stunning for the bride, just as lovely for any occasion, now is the perfect time to place an order for the upcoming holiday season.

Opening reception will be held Friday, October 9th from 4 to 8 pm at Virtu, 2034 N Damen Avenue in Bucktown. RSVP kindly requested at or 773.235.3790. We will offer 15% off the Anne Sportun • Experimetal Jewellery ™ collection during the trunk show event only.

This celebration will be marked by the return of Moonstuck Chocolates to the shelves of Virtu. Carried only through the cooler months, Moonstruck truffles live up to the standard of artisanal quality that Virtu strives to put forth. A variety of seasonal truffles will be served throughout the evening.
