MANDEL JCC OF THE PALM BEACHES presents the following programming:

Wednesday, AUGUST 3 at 7:30 pm ET
Virtual event; $10 per household, RSVP required

The Palvin family built an empire on love. As the first jewelers to sell diamond rings exclusively for proposals, they start a tradition that has defined engagements ever since. But when an ill-fated publicity stunt pits the three Palvin sisters against one another for a famous family jewel, their bond is broken. No ordinary diamond ring, the Electric Rose splinters the sisters, leaving one unlucky in love, one escaping to the shores of Cape Cod, and the other, ultimately, dead.
