This is a very upscale jewelry store with some nice imported pieces. They also have some lovely watches and are the exclusive distributors in the United States of the Bulgari Enigma watch line. Many of the settings come with a variety of stones. A very nice place to shop and in the middle of the Diamond District so if you don't find what you want you can easily find other places to shop.
This Upper East Side emporium carries the work of Judith Leiber. The jewelry are beautiful pieces made with animal. She seems to have covered a large swath of the palnt and animal kingdoms in her designs and they are very attractive. Their are also handbags that she has designed as well as a few small leather pieces, wallets and what not. A nice place to look at and if you have my tastes you'll find the jewelry attractive.
PROS: Nice merchandise
This place lives up to it's name as a handful of designers make all sorts of wedding and commitment bands. Some look traditional some are very stylish and some have a playful funky feel. If you are thinking of taking your relationship to the next level and you want something different than a plain gold band drop by and give this shop the once over.
PROS: Interesting place
This 5th Avenue jewelry shop is in the same stretch as Harry Winston, Cartiers and Tiffanys. They are all tremendous shops filled with exceptional pieces that are very expensive. You could easily put together a nice little jewelry walking tour starting at Tiffanys on 57th and 5th and then hitting Bulgari, Harry Winston and Cartier. Finish your trip off at 467th Street and walk through the Diamond District where there hundreds of jewelers on one block. Keep in mind most of the shops in the Diamond District are closed Saturday.
PROS: Exceptional Jewlery
CONS: Very Expensive
Very feminine jewelry here. The designer works in light pastel earth stones to create some very pretty and visually stunning pieces. The designer Laura Mady relies a little to much on blue stones for my taste but this is beautiful work and is well worth the price. Nest time you're in the West Village walk over and take a look.
This is the flagship store of the Timberland empire. The service is good and you'll pay full price for your timbies here. You can hunt around and save a few dollars but you'll never be offered the selection that this store has. So if price is your primary goal hunt about but if you want to see the full line in a nice comfortable space this is the place to be.
PROS: Good Selection
Ah the shop of the clever advertisements. If you haven't been well worth a visit as although the shoes are designer and of good quality they are priced reasonably. I purchased a nice pair of loafers a few years back for $110 and they have held up well.
PROS: Fair pricing
Wolfords has been delighting europeans for years and their New York shops are high quality places. The service is excellent and the selection of stocking is wonderful. If you're looking to take a step up from Victoria's Secret drop by and pay a visit.
PROS: Great Merchandise
Nice Park Avenue store that has an excellent selection of Timberlands and Rockports. A nice place to pick up a pair for that Urban/Country look or if you need to be supplied for a hiking trip. Excellent service.
PROS: Do what they do well
This shop specializes in hand made beautiful shoes of a classic design. The leather is smooth, unblemished and supple. Of course a place like this is not cheap, be prepared for some serious sticker shock but if you are looking to own one pair of exceptional shoes that will always look great for business meetings and special events take a look here.
PROS: Classy with a capital C
CONS: Very Expensive
