On December 4, Stephen and Jared Silver celebrated the new collaboration with LOUIS XIII Cognac at their Rosewood Sand Hill boutique in Silicon Valley. The event gathered friends and clients including actor Aldis Hodge, to admire North America’s largest publicly displayed decanter of LOUIS XIII Cognac: a 6 liter “Le Mathusalem” hand-blown Baccarat crystal bottle. Currently, Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry offers private presentations and tastings of the rare French cognac to any customers making purchases over $25,000.
The limited-edition “Le Mathusalem” crystal decanter contains the exquisite blend of up to 1,200 grapes eaux-de-vie sourced 100% from Grande Champagne aged slowly inside an oak cask. The design of each individually numbered decanter is inspired by an original 16th century metal flask, discovered on the site of the battle of Jarnac in France. The “Le Mathusalem” 6 liter bottle is made from fine crystal weighing 17 kilos, mouth-blown by 20 highly skilled master craftsmen of La Maison Baccarat. LOUIS XIII is the life achievement of four generations of cellar masters.
The Silvers’ LOUIS XIII “Le Mathusalem” decanter will remain on permanent public display at the Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry boutique together with its dedicated case, eight crystal glasses, a serving platter, and a pipette, in honor of the ancestral tasting and serving rituals of the LOUIS XIII cellar masters. At the December 4 launch event at Rosewood Sand Hill, intimate groups of Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry friends and clients were guided by a LOUIS XIII cellar master through a 30-minute tasting experience.
With this new LOUIS XIII display, Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry will also be featured in an exclusive range of LOUIS XIII exclusive experiences available only to the most dedicated LOUIS XIII customers worldwide. VIP LOUIS XIII customers visiting the San Francisco Bay area can reserve a tour of the Silvers’ extensive vaults, where they will behold some of the world’s greatest jewelry treasures and loose gemstones valued in the hundreds of millions of dollars.
