So what. I’m having a jewelry moment.
These designers have dreamed up and created masterpieces I’ve had no fewer than five compliments on each time I’ve worn ‘em. No joke. Their precious pieces have proven to be worth a pretty penny and many, if not all, of them would make fabulous gifts for Valentine’s Day, bridesmaids, push presents and the like. I’ll give ya a three-fer:
First up we have Phoenix Roze, a small but awesome storefront in the West Village with an outstanding array of delicate designs. Skip Tiffany’s, H.Stern, and the rest of fifth avenue and head down to Jane & 8th Ave instead. They’ve got everything from a single gemstone on a delicate chain to angel wings and decked out scull rings. There’s always something unique to admire in this amazing boutique.
Then we have Dorsena, full of gorgeous Argentinian spectaculars. Still new to the scene, these designs are already selling like serious hot cakes. They’re such durable handmade quality and are misleadingly light to wear. They’ve been great for mixing and matching with other jewelry staples, dressing them up and down to fit for a brunch on the weekend or with an LBD for a night at a charity ball. I’m telling you: a new New York staple.
And last but certainly not least, we’ve got Alanna Bess. Her pieces are luxe and she has a keen understanding of what women crave. Her designs are raw and sexy, having already been seen on celebrities like Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, and Twilight’s Ashley Greene. And if ya don’t see all you’re looking for on her site at any one time, keep an eye out for her goods on couture925, Haute Look and Gilt Groupe (next sale this Mon, Feb 6th, 2012- I’ll beat ya there!). She made custom pieces for my day of ‘I Do’ and still stands to be one of my all time faves.
Enjoy and shop your heart out!
