Best of New York 2015

Best Everything Jewelry

  • Broken English

    56 Crosby St., nr. Spring St.; 212-219-1264

    It’s rare for such a teeny fine-jewelry shop to deliver such a range of chunky and dainty, vintage and edgy. The original store is in L.A., and owner Laura Freedman plays to both low-key Brentwood and bold New York types: Anita Ko ear cuffs (from $400) and black-diamond-trimmed jade cocktail rings by the Brazilian Carla Amorim ($4,600) alongside sweet birthstone locket charms (from $35) equally suited to kid and grandma. The staff will leave you to browse in peace, but if you’re seeking, say, a Deco tennis bracelet, Freedman is happy to antique-hunt on your behalf and call you with her finds.
