Ashton's more an antiques dealer than a jeweler: He travels to estate sales all over Europe and America to source out the prettiest, best-made stuff from the early twentieth century. One trip uncovered a 38-carat-diamond-and-onyx Art Deco bracelet. Michael Ashton has collectible vintage wrist watches from the 30s through 60s.
This elegant neighborhood boutique, furnished like a classic library, has a wide selection of diamond, ruby, and sapphire wedding bands. Notable in the high-end mix is a 7.06-karat cushion-cut diamond ring for $150,000. By appointment only.
