The Tiffany & Co. pop-up in Los Angeles has been generating a lot of buzz and in San Francisco, the brand has been getting plenty of attention too. Earlier this week, Tiffany & Co. hosted a flashy event in honor of the San Francisco Symphony. The soirée was in anticipation of the Symphony’s Chinese New Year concert and imperial dinner which takes place on February 24. Tiffany is a sponsor of the dinner which brings together over 500 of the region’s most significant business and philanthropic leaders in the Asian-American community.

Some of these people mingled with the SF social set on Wednesday night at the Tiffany cocktail party. Guests included Federico Sandino, the director of Tiffany San Francisco and members of the committee hosting the Symphony event in February—Cecilia Chiang, Margaret Liu Collins, Iris Chan, and Sharon Juang.
