Last night friends (and, apparently, frenemies) of Marisa Noel Brown, the youngest daughter of Fairfield Greenwich founder Walter Noel, got an e-mail that shared some exciting news about Tre, the jewelry company Marisa started with partners last fall (before it was revealed that her father was a major player in the world's largest Ponzi scheme):
Starting tomorrow, Tuesday June 16th, through Monday, June 22nd, TRE will be featured in the 5th Ave Window of Henri Bendel! If you are in NYC, please
come visit us! My partners and I will be there ...
Yes, do! Go pick up a shiny bangle! Treat yourself! Oh, what's that? Can you not shop anymore, because all of your money was sucked away by a major Ponzi scheme and/or the ramifications thereof? Don't worry. Marisa and her partners have designed the current collection with you in mind:
Our designs are bold, unique, and affordable!
Their rings, which are made of glass, are $50 to $85. That's affordable, right? For a piece of glass with a hole in it? Anyway, there is value added because you're not just buying a piece of jewelry. You're giving. According to the Tre website, the company will plant a tree for every piece of jewelry you buy.
Also, there's always the chance that Irving Picard will sue them and redistribute their profits to the old people and charities that lost all their money to Bernie Madoff. So.
Here's the full e-mail:
