One of the best things about New York City is the seemingly never-ending plethora of boutiques and other shopping venues. Looking for a shiny new addition to your collection? Read on to discover the best jewelry shops in NYC.
Feelings of wanderlust and an appreciation of artisanal craftsmanship define this homey Nolita boutique, with an eclectic mix of new and vintage jewelry as well as homewares. Informed by years of travel on the part of Lori Leven, the collections feature splurge-worthy rings, necklaces and bracelets from different designers around the world. Love Adorned is the sister shop of the East Village tattoo parlor, New York Adorned.
At Brooklyn Charm, each customer is able to create their own unique piece of jewelry, choosing from hundreds of chains and thousands of charms. Pieces can be made at the store or customers also have the option of taking supplies home with them. The store houses rare materials from around the world and also hosts a variety of jewelry-making lessons for those looking to get crafty.
Caitlin Mociun displays her jewelry at her namesake Williamsburg shop, alongside artisan-made ceramics, in an open, airy space with the feel of an art gallery. Mociun is known for its unique stone cluster rings, often using rare gems and antique diamonds, and all of the pieces are made locally in New York City. Customers can also request a design consultation with Caitlin to have a piece custom made.
Established in Los Angeles, Broken English recently expanded to New York City, opening their first store on the East Coast in the back of the All Saints’ SoHo location. In keeping with the aesthetic of its adjoining store, the space has an upscale industrial feel, which beautifully showcases vintage finds as well as contemporary pieces from a curated selection of designers including Anita Ko., Colette, Inez & Vinoodh and Pamela Love.
Founded in Williamsburg in 2004, Catbird has quickly become a neighborhood favorite. All of its namesake jewelry is produced locally in its Brooklyn studio using recycled or fair trade gold. The line features simple, clean designs with small diamonds and cute motifs. In addition to Catbird jewelry, the boutique also sells pieces from other designers around the world as well as beauty and home goods.
Scosha’s Williamsburg location is also home to its in-house production team of artisans who craft everything by hand. Inspired by the founder’s world travels, the pieces are made using ancient techniques for metal smithing, stone setting and weaving and combine textiles with precious metals and stones, putting a unique spin on fine jewelry.
