You don't have to be a social anthropologist to know women love two things in life: things that sparkle and sparkling conversation (preferably over a glass of sparkling wine). Combine the two and you have something approaching heaven on Earth. Demonstrating its experience in feminine ways, luxury jeweller Cartier is doing just that: taking over the interior of Red bar in Central to show off its latest collection. Next Saturday and Sunday, the bar will be transformed into a lair filled with glittering display cases, with refreshments available from the specially set up Cafe de Pasha and the Red kitchen. Full details of the brand's new range, called Pasha de Cartier, are being kept under wraps, but prices start at $9,500 and it features colours associated with steamy sunsets, so perhaps Red was chosen for more than its location.

The collection can be viewed by the public next weekend, with an exclusive VIP preview on Friday. Red, 4/F, IFC Mall, Central, tel: 8129 8882, opens at 11.30am, closing at 2am on Saturday and 10pm on Sunday. For more information, call Cartier on 2532 0314.
