Whether you’re looking for something sparkly, colorful, or you just want to spice up your wardrobe, these are the best places to buy statement jewelry in the city. By Carly Petrone.
You may not automatically think of Forever 21 as a place to get your favorite piece of jewelry but it is the perfect place to spend that extra $20 in your pocket. Everything is on trend and you can seriously stock up on everything from layered pendant necklaces and earcuffs to stacking rings and etched hand chains. Plus, the Times Square store is open until 2 a.m. so you can pick something out even if you’re already out for the evening. Check website for more store locations.
If you’re looking for something bohemian, Anthropologie is your store. Dress up any outfit with colorful drop earrings, bib necklaces, and cocktail rings, which can be found in their accessory section. Try one of their sparkly headbands for a simple but eye-catching look or be playful and rock one of their animal pendants, earrings, or rings. Oh, and don’t forget to check out their sale items. You can normally find some good deals.
Kate Spade is preppy perfection with its playful and fun city-inspired collections. Check out their Vegas jewels and New York-centric watches (the rose gold Gramercy Grand is one of our favorites). From sparkly studs to idiom bracelets, each piece will put a smile on your face. Make sure to stop by or shop online for some Valentine inspiration – may we suggest the Kiss Me Studs or Kiss and Make Up Lipstick Pendant? Of course, you can never go wrong with a statement cuff or cluster necklace. Check website for store locations.
Make your way down to Soho and walk through the doors of So Good. Warning: you may feel like you’ve walked into jewelry heaven. The bright pink walls are lined with everything a gal could want. This store has chunky necklaces, jewelry sets, pins and hair accessories, and everything in between. The average price is $10 so feel free to go crazy. It may not be the best quality item you’ve ever bought but does that really matter when it cost as much as your lunch? If you’re looking for something specific, So Good probably has it. Second store location located in the West Village at 265 Bleecker St.
Head to Williamsburg if you feel like buying something with an edge. Verameat is handcrafting sculptural designs made from 100% recycled sterling silver and pure 14-karat gold. You’ll certainly make a statement sporting one of their best sellers – the gold Sweet Tooth Necklace and Dino-Eating Fried Chicken ring will certainly stir up a conversation. The adorable “Hi I’m French” (a gold French Bull Dog ring) and “Bitty Piglet Got Lucky” (a brass pig bracelet) are perfect for the animal lover while the “Pretzel Time” and “Baby Ice Cream” necklaces are always a great addition for any foodie out there. Store is open until 8 p.m. Check website for more store locations.
