In 1988, Alice Kwartler decided to leave the corporate world and open a store selling what she loves—beautiful estate and antique items. Her spacious Midtown East location attracts passersby, as well as collectors who visit from around the world. Her selection is largely sterling silver, but it also includes an impressive assortment of enamel and crystal pieces. One of the nation’s biggest collections of cuff links—as well as platinum, diamond, and gold jewelry, including Art Deco, Art Nouveau, and forties and fifties pieces—is showcased in the center of the store. Along the perimeter of the shop are large glass cases, each holding a curated selection: cocktail-and-bar, Tiffany and Cartier, and inkwell-and-desk accessories. The store is a great place for corporate presents, like engravable sterling boxes, and also offers bridal and baby registries.

Wedding Rings

Brides who want an engagement ring with history and grooms looking for vintage cuff links to jazz up that Hugo Boss tux will thrill at this unique collection. Enamel, crystal, diamond, platinum, and gold jewelry period pieces abound, dating from 1880 to the 1950s. Don’t be surprised to see antique Tiffany & Co., David Webb, Buccellati, or Cartier among the vintage baubles and gems. Prices upon request.
