6 at Astor Pl.
This venue is closed.
This well-stocked vintage jewelry boutique offers pieces from the Victorian period through the sixties, as well as handmade accessories by local designers. Owner Sara Brandt scours antique markets and estate sales for rare finds, notably a collection of Irish trinkets, like Trinity knots and Celtic crosses. The baubles are housed in tall glass display cases along opposite sides of the shop, including garnet brooches from the 1800s, cameos, Art Deco necklaces, jade rings, gold-plated bangles, and chandelier earrings strewn with sapphires and crystals. Brandt selects a wide array of pieces to appeal to a range of tastes, from hefty mosaic styles to dainty floral studs. A small selection of luxe silk scarves are also on display in the rear of the shop.
