Palace Jewelers is bringing back their popular Valentine’s Event, Bubbles and Bling
Bubbles and Bling, a popular Valentine’s event for years created by Palace Jewelers and Manitou Galleries, is making a return to Santa Fe at the Manitou Gallery location. The festive event will feature new work by celebrated native jewelers across the Southwest, music by violin queen Rachel Kelli and decadent seasonal treats and snacks.

“These award-winning jewelers are all represented by Palace Jewelers, located inside Manitou Galleries on Palace Avenue right off the plaza,” says Director Tsali Hall. “All of them have spent the winter in their studios creating new works and we can’t wait to reveal them to our friends and clients.”
The evening will also include performances by Rachel Kelli. Kelli is a native of Santa Fe who has over twenty years of experience as a violinist. She has been a part of the Santa Fe Symphony and has also been actively involved in the wedding and entertainment industry for over a decade.
