I LOVE this place

You just have to stop at the window and look. The store sparkles and has definitely his own charm. There is a huge variety of jewelry in the store, and you find gifts for everyone! From the adorable animal posts (the elephants are my favorite), to beautiful Green Amethyst Earrings with diamonds, the selection is great! And all the girls working there are so nice, patient and very helpful. Every year I buy my best friend jewelry from this store. She loves them! I am so happy that I found Lunessa.

My favorite jewels in New York

Lunessa is my go-to store for jewelry. Gifts for the girls? Lunessa. Mom's birthday? Lunessa. I really don't need this beautiful necklace but god help me I'm not leaving without it? Lunessa! Each piece here is more beautiful than the last, and they're always getting fresh pieces in (to tempt me). Every salesgirl I've met here has been sweet and super helpful but never made me feel pressured. Really--this place is just a gem.

Absolutely charming & beautiful: this is a very special place to shop...

I don't usually leave reviews, but this very unusual and beautiful store and shopping experience prompted me to share with the public my find. The selection of gemstone jewelry is both very unique and at once timeless/classic. I was overwhelmed by the number of beautiful pieces - to the point of being unable to leave/decide for some time which ones to select. The prices were reasonable, the salesgirl charming and attentive without being sale-sy, and all the details - from the atmosphere, to the giftwrap was special and indulgent. This store is very special: full of heart and sparkle!

This romantic sparkling store is a real find of incredible jewelry. My wife nearly married me again for the necklace I selected for her birthday. Very helpful, laid back sales help, amazing very unusual selection (that is the only hard part ...there are tons of amazing pieces), great prices, beautiful gift wrap- what more could you ask for? Easy, easy, easy...

Truly special

I made a point to visit Lunessa after hearing about it from a friend, and was so happy to find that all of her positive remarks weren't just hype! Lunessa really IS that special. The store itself is beautiful and cozy, hidden amongst the chain stores that are rapidly taking over Soho. Elise Perelman's jewelry collection is gorgeous. Delicate and beautifully handcrafted, I loved it so much I had to come home and write about it- And I never do that!! Elise was also able to help me design a necklace based around some old family stones I've had forever, but never known what to do with. This boutique provides exactly the sort of personal attention that one would hope to find in a small business, and reminded me how truly important it is to support our local artists and small business owners.

Lunessa, a SOHO gem

I recently stumbled upon this hidden jewel of a shop in the heart of SOHO! Walking in is like entering a sparkling enchanted forest, and the pieces are just breath taking. I got to meet the designer, Elise, when I was there and she was just as lovely as her jewels. She helped me choose a piece for myself as well as several gifts, and all of it came within my budget. I was shopping with a group of friends and there was truly something for every one of us! None of us left without buying some little treasure, and neither will you! A range of styles, prices, and colors makes this store quite a find. I definitely recommend stopping in to Lunessa if you need a gift for yourself, some one else, or if you just want to experience true SOHO boutique shopping. From little crystal flower earrings to elegant Necklaces dripping with rich gems, Lunessa has it all, and with a one of a kind designer on hand. I guarantee it will be difficult to leave without buying one of Elise's creations!

"A really special collection of jewels..."

This enchanting shop should be your first and last stop when looking for a gift or need a special piece of jewelry. The selection covers a wide range of price points and the taste level is exceptional, with mostly intricate gorgeously crafted jewely. "Really special pieces" is my best description, and the reasonable price tag and friendly saleshelp just complete the experience. It doesn't get better than this ....you will leave happy - with beautiful jewelry!
