RIP: jul dizon

yesterday afternoon, just past five o'clock, we received a text from janina dizon hoschka: "my beautiful mom jul dizon is now holding hands with god." we were a bit shocked. did this mean she was... the message continued: "interment will be at heritage in taguig starting tomorrow. mom wanted everyone to wear white. thanks and please pass to everyone her life touched." apparently, she had lost her battle with lymphoma cancer. everyone is familiar with the jeweler jul B. dizon and her vivacious daughters janina and candy, who are established jewelers themselves. just last july, they celebrated their anniversary, as well as launched a one-off collection designed by one of their regular clients, lucy torres gomez. we wish we could say we own a jul dizon, but ever since we lost our wedding ring years ago, we've become allergic to expensive jewelry (or is expensive jewelry allergic to us??). last year, we had the opportunity to sit and talk to jul dizon during a press con for a previous anniversary event at the peninsula manila. we were a bit early, so there was lots of time to chit chat. we found her to be a really lovely, really classy lady. she gave us a background of her history, her jewelry business, and how her children were continuing her legacy. we're glad we got to know her even just for a little while...
