- Albertine General
15 Christopher St., nr. Greenwich Ave.; 212-924-8515
You want a delicate antique locket? How about a bold collar made with aggressive-looking tusks? A new bracelet fashioned from vintage charms? Or a stack of shiny diamond-studded rings? The stock at this sister store to the Albertine boutique runs the style gamut from bold to tiny, and focuses on unique pieces from smaller (and often local) designers like Becca Straus, Kathryn Bentley, Madame Fortuna, and Cave Canem. New pieces come in weekly, prices range from $100 up to $10,000, and for the purposes of birthdays and special occasions, there’s a registry to keep track of your favorites.
