Michael C. Fina is as one-stop as you can get for china and jewelry, without braving packed department stores. Built on tradition—the family-owned business started back in 1935—Fina's inventory surpasses department store offerings in quantity and quality, successfully dipping into current trends without sending Grandma's sensibilities overboard—that is, as long as she steers clear of the psychedelic Missoni table sets and decadently gaudy, gold-rimmed Versace Rainbow Butterfly plates. The basement is a bride-to-be's greatest fantasy and worst nightmare: Although the sales staff tries to make registering for The Big Three—china, sterling and stemware—painless by scheduling individual, 90-minute appointments, navigating the maze of Hermès and Meissen wares can unhinge the savviest fiancée. Downstairs couples can also peruse a gallery of over 1,000 wedding bands and engagement rings, while upstairs showcases a selection of fine jewelry.
