Cristina Taranu and Reiner Mengesdorf, the husband-and-wife team behind this store, both hail from Europe, but they actually met at a bar in Soho. When Taranu started making jewelry a few years later, Mengesdorf’s background in sculpture helped him pick up the techniques; they soon went into business, opening up this storefront in 2009. The space has a large window that looks out onto the street. Inside, a crystal chandelier hangs from the ceiling and two antique glass cases display the jewelry, much of which rests on driftwood collected from the Hudson River. Hats by Charm NYC also line shelves along one of the walls. The hand-made jewelry, which is inspired by ancient Greco-Roman and Byzantine designs, is solid and bulky, with bezel set stones and sculptural shapes. For men, there are cufflinks and wedding bands; custom wedding bands and engagement rings are also available. An 18-karat floral branch ring set with a conflict-free Australian champagne and cognac diamonds is a standout.
