Laura Mady’s pink-tinged boutique has supplied the now-glitzy MPD crowd with gemstone-decked jewelry for more than a decade. Glass cases line both walls of the cozy, feminine space, each filled with necklaces, rings, and earrings of a uniform hue: black diamonds, aquamarine, and turquoise in one; pink sapphire and coral in another; raw rubies, garnets, and fire opal; emeralds; and golden citrine. A packed case on the end displays glittering white and cream creations of London Blue topaz, diamond, and pearl, which are especially popular among meatpacking brides; she’ll also create customized jewelry for bridesmaids. Mady builds each piece individually around the cut and shape of the stones, which she sources from Belgium, Brazil, and beyond. Well-priced classic pieces like petal- and teardrop-shaped gemstones strung on leather or silk cord start at $45, while elaborate necklaces dripping with diamonds can reach $1,400. But most designs fall comfortably in between — Mady believes that no woman should ever have to wait for someone to buy jewelry for her.
