Jewelry at Old Hollywood.

    110 Meserole Ave., nr. Manhattan Ave., Greenpoint; 718-389-0837

    As a former full-time buyer for indie jewelry store Catbird, Old Hollywood owner Tiffany Porter has a talent for discovering distinctive young designers. She and her partner Alex Shulhafer launched this 300-square-foot Greenpoint nook in October, focusing on vintage-inspired accessories. Around twenty lines are displayed in the drawers of an antique wardrobe and dangling off shelves. Many are exclusive to the store, like VeridiAum’s leather and rose gold rings, the chunky scarab and quill trinkets from Withering Elm, and elaborate layered necklaces strewn with vintage brooches by Harlow in Chains. The prices are excellent, too: starting at $20 for a brass charm bracelet and topping out at $300 for an oversize gold cocktail ring.
